    I bought this a couple of weeks ago. I put my Virgin hub into modem mode and then connected this. ITS BLOODY FANTASTIC AND HAS MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE TO MY WI-FI - BUY IT!

    I bought this a few months back and returned it. WiFi range and performance were no better than my Hyperoptic-supplied router, some features are locked behind a subscription and there are certain things you can only do on the TP Link app while others you can only do on the web interface. I usually like TP Link stuff but this was disappointing.

    You have to subscribe as in pay money to use more advanced features of the router? If that is true then this router should be boycotted. Or it maybe that it's free but you need to make a TPLink account, in that case I would just make a free email account and not give them my daily email account. (edited)

    I was thinking about getting something like this. I'm with EE on the 900 package and on my pc in the upstairs room (near enough directly above the cupboard with the router I get 200 if I am lucky.

    Check your wireless link speed in Windows Network Settings, if your link speed is below your maximum broadband speed then it's impossible to get the full speed of your connection. For example on Windows 11 I had a link speed of 144Mbps but my broadband speed is 500Mb. I changed my 802.11 setting for the wireless card to 802.11a and voila it connects at 1733Mbps now which far exceeds the maximum speed of my connection.

    Check you have a decent wireless card meaning it is compatible with at least WIFI 5, check it has the latest drivers and check that is it setup for maximum performance by forcing 5GHz band >

    I found that setting 802.11a and not having it on Auto fixed Windows 11 connecting on 2.4GHz even though force 5GHz was enabled as per the first link. So I wouldn't rely on Auto settings, have a mess about. Remember the settings take a photo of them if you need to and revert back to default if you break it.

    One disclaimer : I rarely use Windows 11, but as I had to use it for some Adobe software and I noticed this slow speed I had to tinker and fix it. I did manage it. Force 5GHz and set 802.11ac as the Wifi standard instead of Auto was the fix for me. (edited)

    Was thinking about buying this but some of the one star reviews are putting me off. A couple of people complained it gets extremely hot which could explain why the AX73 has increased cooling although that could be as it has a more powerful processor.

    I recently picked up the ax73 and it's extremely good. Also grabbed one of the wifi 6 mesh extenders (could be re605x or something) and I get my full speed everywhere including places I had dead spots. Expensive initially (just over £200 in total) but has made a massive difference. I struggled getting 5ghz up one flight of stairs previously.

    It’s a good price for a solid router, buyers just need to consider a newer more powerful version (triple core cpu vs dual core) exists for circa £144 on Amazon, but most users are unlikely to benefit or notice any difference.

    Hey everyone, looking some advice. My Vodafone 900Mb plan went active today but the speeds are less than idea over Wifi for what I'm paying for vs what I'm getting, believe it's probably down to the Vodafone router not being able to support these higher speeds over wifi. For example on my phone, Samsung Galaxy s21 ultra, when sat downstairs beside the router I'm getting around 285mbps. Ideally to make this plan worth paying I'd want wifi speeds at least over 500mbps or I'd best be going for a lower package. Would something like this help me get better speeds over wifi or if anyone can recommend anything else ?
    Avatar
    Test the speed by wiring a laptop up directly to the router first, then you know for sure whether it's the WiFi or just the connection itself

    I have an old but home him and a white box drilled into the walls by by. Can I just connect this to the white box and get rid of the home hub?
    Avatar
    If it uses a phone line (ADSL) then no you can’t as you still need a modem.

    I have EE wifi and use the ee router. The range is pretty crap and can cut out. Will using this router instead fix this?
    Avatar
    Yes it should although it depends on the environment you live in and how far away from the router you want to be. I have a Gigabyte WIFI 5 card in my PC and I get a 1733Mbps link on my WIFI 6 Dlink router, this is easily enough to cope with my 500Mb broadband connection. In theory coupled with a WIFI 6 card you could connect at 5400Mbps, in practice it will be less, which is easily enough for any 1 Gigabit connection (1000Mb) to function properly. Even with WIFI 5 it will easily be enough.

    Presumably you will be using Windows so you need to check what link speed you get, as your Wifi is only as good as your maximum link speed. Only Linux I get 1733Mbps, with Windows 11 I had to go to the adapter settings in device manager and change a setting to 802.11a standard to force the Wifi card to using 802.11ac or 802.11ax if using WIFI 6. Windows 11 is terrible though so I rarely use it, however I understand most people will be using Windows 10 or 11 so that might help them if their link speed is poor. Without changing the setting I was getting 144Mbps link speed which is less than the max of my broadband speed 500Mb so therefore I would get no more than 100Mb+ on a speedtest. (edited)
