As many of you guys and gals may have jumped ship to new ISP due to BT price hike, you may find that their modem router to be not ideal. This modem router is highly regarding agmonst network enthusiast due to it having latest Broadcom chip-set and good MU-MIMO connectivity. Anyone moving to Vodafone or TalkTalk should consider this modem router. Yesterday this was £175 and lowest it has ever been is £160.

Good to see a relatively cheap router with a versatile modem, rather than having to buy a separate modem as well!

I've got the VR750, these are great routers, especially for the money; mine hasnt needed a reboot - other than for a line outage - in over 2 years of FTTC use.

Cable, ADSL, FTTC and 4G all in one package.

I have one of these and it is the best router I have ever owned! Stable and reliable with a great interface. You can even get IPV6 working on BT Infinity unlike with my last Netgear D6400. I also like that when you make a change in the router settings it does not need to re-boot like the Netgear did so saving time.

At this price buy one while you can!

Does anyone know whether this is configurable for a private VPN such as Nord VPN, IPVanish, PUREVPN etc?

Apparently his router supports IPSec VPN, whatever that means.

I ask as I have not found much info Googling this query and am not knowledgeable on this subject.

Just had a quick look through the online manual for it and certainly looks like it does, seems to support OpenVPN, PPTP etc. You'd basically just add the IP addresses of the VPN servers and add the username/password you get from Nord, Pure etc.

Note for skyq you won't be able to use this instead of the router... You will need them both.. excellent price though!

Clarity?

I have this router in 1900 version, and have Sky Q fully operational via Sky broadband. Used wireshark to get login details etc and no issues.

Ummed and arred, but went ahead and got one to replace awefull talk talk modem router. Hope it as good as the hype as our house is almost at standstill!

Can you use this to boost signal on another floor. Could I run a cat6 cable from existing router to feed this router.

Thanks in advance

Well, I can tell you it categorically works and has caused zero issues in our house

Username is usually the MAC address or very close to it and password is not always needed. Wireshark will find it all out from stock router anyway.
Sky aren't bothered unless you give them grief.

For future reference, 'kind of' is the answer you're after. It'll run an OpenVPN server, but not act as a client.. meaning you can't just put your NordVPN details into it and have everything routed through as a 'one box' solution.
