Yes but you would be better off hard wiring / powerlining this onto the main network.

Please could you explain how one would do this? (In simple terms as I have no idea when it comes to routers) 😑

I have had this router for nearly 2 and a half years now. Before this I was using a Virgin media super hub 2ac which is garbage. Constantly had issues with NAT and connecting to sertain gamer services on PC,Xbox and PS4. Final straw came when I couldn't play Rainbow Six Siege on release week due to connection errors.

Put the piece of crap SH2ac into modem mode and bought this. Very simple to set up. Comes with a picture type guide anyone can follow. The 5ghz wifi signal is a little weak and devices up stairs do sometime have issues dropping the connection due to it being so weak. So I had to buy a powerline extender which also acts as a wifi booster.
The 5G band on most routers at this price point will be useless anyway unless within close proximity.

That said its nice to have it and the USB storage/printer option is also nice to have.

For anyone wanting an out of the box range extender, the Edimax BR-6208AC is £30 at CPC - has Wisp, Range Extender, Wireless Bridge etc - I was using one until recently, performed reasonably well.
Would this be noticeably better than the aging BT Home Hub 3 I have right now? It works but the maximum download speed I can get is around 1.3 MB/second and at times feels excruciatingly slow. It took 18 hours to download GTA V from Steam the other week!
Price is getting cheaper - but see comments. I've wasted time and effort on this product buying two of them...... hotukdeals.com/dea…358

I've got an Asus ac87u and initially the 5ghz signal was bad. But changing the frequency and the channel means I get coverage at the back of house, roughly 12 metres away from the router. Might be worth tinkering around with the settings.

If you're after something cheap that ticks all the boxes I'd recommend the TP-LINK Archer VR600 WiFi Modem Router - AC 1600, Dual-band. Around £80 most places.

I Got mine from Currys to upgrade from my talktalk router. Gigabit ports and good WiFi coverage, 2.4ghz & 5ghz.
