    Am fed up of the virgin media crappy router
    joaorosa80's avatar
    The best investment for Virgin Media Hub 3 users, IMO.
  2. Caswe11's avatar
    Bought to replace the virgin media hub (now to figure out how to get modem mode added before it arrives)
    bagga212's avatar
    You can't, you set the virgin hub into modem mode and use this as a router

    It only says Wifi6, so not next gen 6E?
    bagga212's avatar
    Not for 44 quid no

    Can you install VPN on this ?

    Would two of these connected together via OneMesh beat something like two Deco M4s?
    FreakyGeek's avatar
    I would say they would as these offer 5ghz speeds of 1201mbps Vs 800mbps of the decos. They are easy to pair to as they use the new easymesh system. (i have two myself).

    Best thing I did was get my own router, no problems, app can access online and when I need to call up to cancel I don't have to worry about setting up new router I have the ax 1800

    Would this be a good upgrade on my crappy NowTV Router?
    bagga212's avatar
    This is an upgrade

    Tempted! My super hub 5's signal is absolutely crap upstairs
  9. Filbet's avatar
    Now broadband router, would this improve the speed.. and is there an app with this to restrict or put a timmer on connections...would like to comunicate with my family after 6pm..

    I bought an AX55 to replace my sky router on full fibre and it's like night and day. Speed, reliability. So much better. Now with Vodafone using the same router and couldn't be happier.
    The AC1200 will make a huge difference to anyone wishing to switch out from the one that comes from their isp.
    Also these routers are easymesh compatible meaning you can buy multiple and link them together to make a mesh network. I have 2 myself and get full house coverage.

    Has anyone got experience moving from the BT homehub to this? Wondering if it's a worthwhile move.

    I already have the hard drive, which I used with my airport extreme. Now that doesn't work I'm looking for a decent cheap alternative. I would plug it in, but I like the convenience of not having to think about backing up that the AE gave me.
  13. shaun.hollows's avatar
    If I replaced my Vodafone router with this and paired it to my Deco AC1200 M4, would it give me better speeds?
    MzteeTeeMam's avatar
    Did you get a response I was thinking the same
  14. bagga212's avatar
    This model router was only realised May of this year ..... so expect many many years of support and firmware upgrades (edited)
  15. aks4ever's avatar
    I have Decos around the house, but my main router is a linksys by community fiber I connected it via ethernet to a deco and the others are all wireless. If I replace the main linksys router to this one will it make any significant speed change?
    wayne_dwan's avatar
    I had decos cant remember version about 18 months ago. They did improve coverage but after testing I found the deco devices to be the speed bottle neck. If you think your getting 3 devices for 30 quid each. Brought 2 Asus routers ax55 created a mesh much much better.
  16. Gohan123's avatar
    Also consider ...
    Faster 600Mbps on 2.4ghz
    anf 1300Mbps on 5ghz....no wifi 6....but how many devices are on wifi 6.
    bagga212's avatar
    Over 3 years old proven itself but will go out of support sooner than the AX12.

    Also as stated with WiFi 6 for future proving. I don't plan on buying another router for 10 years

    Can ZeroTier be set up on this?
  19. Player-1's avatar
    Anyone possible to test WiFi5 and WiFi 6 and let me know if major difference

    51010997_1.jpgall setup
    Wee fi 6

    I swtiched my virgin hub to modem mode and reused the SSID and wifi credentials for the new router. That way there is zero setup on the client devices. (edited)

    Any noticeable difference from your stock VM hub?
  21. jumpy123's avatar
    I got three Deco S4s to help with a house that only has one ethernet port downstairs. Using Now TV router in modem mode. My signal strength is good, but connection is still woeful. Any ideas is this will solve it? My alternative is getting a MoCa adaptor, but not sure if that makes a difference.
    bagga212's avatar
    I don't know what a deco is, hence I've ignored all those questions n posts
  22. mightywhites1971's avatar
    I bought the Asus RT-AC85P router hoping that I could back up my Mac to it wirelessly with an external hard drive connected to the router, but it appears that it doesn't do it.  Will this one do the job?
    bagga212's avatar
    You need a nas box

    What is the advantage of enabling modem mode on virgin hub 3? I currently have 3 routers around the house, with the main one connected to the lan port of the hub 3 which all WiFi devices connect to instead of the hub 3. But I haven't enabled modem mode so can connect to either WiFi if I wish. But I have a deadspot in parts of the house which are reasonably close to one of the 3 non VM routers. Would modem mode help this? What does it offer over having 2 WiFi options in the house?
    bagga212's avatar
    I just find my virgin WiFi signals hit n miss. Using my to link WiFi is WiFi 6 solid and stable. So that's why I use modem mode, to completely kill off WiFi from the virgin hub.

    Once you have this router you could add anymesh or oneconnect mesh devices to get greater coverage if needed

    I don't think this router is any good. My steam downloads went from 5mbps on a bt home hub 4 to 1mbps on this router via ethernet. I've literally spent £45 for worse internet than a 8 year old bt router.
    bagga212's avatar
    Clearly your setup is incorrect. Or you still have WiFi turned on and clashing with this router
