Good price, cheaper than elsewhere.

Excellent value for money

Is there a similar modem router

Any free delivery codes? Also how is ebuyer's return policy?

I believe that is the D5 version.

... D for DSL maybe, C for what was traditionally called Cable?

Have one running OpenWRT on BT Infinity. Great deal that this price (you will need an openreach vdsl modem for this setup).

yep the d5 is the adsl modem version. the vdsl 2 modem [fibre] version is named different

can I extend my network with this?

Apologies for nooby question - would I be able to use this to replace my rubbish Technicolor router supplied by Plusnet - it's plugged into a BT modem? Could I simply replace my router with this and plug it into the modem?
Trying to solve regular dropouts, buffering and bad wifi.

Cheers

anybody know if this can be used standalone on sky fibre ie not piggybacking off the sky router,?

No, this is not a wifi repeater/extender

yes, The C5 would simply plug into the Openreach modem. You will also need to enter your Plusnet username and password into the PPPoE settings in the C5 to establish the internet connection.

I don't think the C5 stock firmware supports MER protocol. Also, it does not have a built in modem. So the answer is no to your question.

There seems to be two versions of the C5.

C5 v1.x uses Atheros chipset and has DD-WRT and Openwrt support.
New C5 v2 uses broadcom chipset which does not appear to have any 3rd party support at present.

I bought this for a few quid more at PC World a while ago great router, but definitely upgrade to DD-WRT, as you then get many more featues

free delivery only on orders over £49.99

so £47.17 should be in title price

What's the difference between this at the C50 for £43 on amazon?

Tell me please, is this C50 model routerstop.com/tp-…ew/ and yours C5 ac1200 are the same devices?? I want to buy this budget model for my office, but I can't understand the right name of this device
