No I'm saying the Ubiquiti will work, probably the Google will as well, but Ubiquiti have a head start as it's their main business/expertise.
Very good deal and definitely recommending this. I've bought a single wifi point and the improvement compared to the standard Virgin router has been amazing. Better coverage and speed, and most importantly - no network drop outs since I set it up, which was driving me crazy with standard Virgin router. It's so much better! I also like the fact that Google Wifi uses the same network name for both 2.4/5Ghz bands, it makes everything easy.

It's worth mentioning that this hardware came out in Dec 2016 so there's other products available on the market now which have better specs (for example Google Wifi is rated AC1200 but you can get Netgear Orbi rated AC3000). Also if you're a power user, you may be disappointed with lack of features such as QoS and no web interface. All settings are managed via a very easy to use smartphone app, which allows you to set up things such as guest network, family filter, etc.

Some downsides for sure, but this is a great product and perfect for home use.

Not a bad flat hdmi cable, I think it's not rated for 4K@60Hz though so only 30Hz which makes a bit more expensive.

Without it I had poor range, frequent dropouts and a hideously slow GUI with the Virgin unit. I now have this coupled with a R6400 (also DD-WRT) over powerline at the rear of my house and my network is as solid as a rock. The Virgin hub does OK in modem mode.


I have a tp link wdr 3600 running ddwrt connected to superhub 3 in modem mode. Works great, so much better than the superhub as a modem and router.
Does it work with Google Home too? What sort of commands can it do?

Would need restarts every so often and some devices just didn't connect sometimes. Was rather disappointed coming from an Asus router.So last week after putting up with this for a year I went and bought a TPLink C2600 which so far has been far more rock solid. I might have just had a bad router but the whole software and approach of Netgear put me off.All are better than an ISP provided router however.


Did you try updating the firmware? Was an early user of both the R7500 and now R7800, and both have improved massively with updates. Both had a few stability issues and lackluster range out of the box. No issues at all with either now. They probably ship with updated firmware these days, but worth checking if you have issues.

This is only a few pounds less than the price I paid for the R7800 from Amazon at launch. I would wait for that to drop to sub £130 if you can (seems to every couple of months) as it's a much better router.
Will this work fine on BT Infinity? i do have one of the white modems kicking about still

Or spend the money on a 3 node mesh and get consistent performance over a larger area
Is this what a dead spider looks like??
This is a really good router for better range. I bought one around a year ago and there is a considerably better range than my old EA6900.

I had considered mesh, but required best speeds across longer distances that were available at the time.

I say it in every router thread, large numbers do not mean better results, …I say it in every router thread, large numbers do not mean better results, these routers are designed to extract money from those not in the know, and get sucked in by large figures. this review sums it up perfectly"In the end, this is just another really expensive router that's unlikely to light up any of your pesky dead spots or handle a large number of devices any better than a much cheaper AC3200 class tri-radio alternative."https://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless/wireless-reviews/32998-linksys-ea9500-max-stream-ac5400-mu-mimo-gigabit-router-reviewed?showall=&start=4



Yup. Rather than buying this you'd be better off buying a cheaper router that has no wireless built in, accompanied by some wireless access points (preferably using mesh technology).

That's my opinion anyway. I've not had any problems with my home wi-fi since doing this with my Asus RT-N66U and Ruckus R500 AP's.

Where did you get 300m worth for £40? For that price I'd buy that.

rover.ebay.com/rov…594


But as per Morty’s comment below this is copper clad aluminium which isn’t the best quality. But then again. It’s half the price or more , so I suppose there is always a compromise. I’ve just done a google on Coper clad vs copper as its handy to know these things.

Good luck with whatever root you go down.

Best value for money I could find. I ended up buying a 40m cable to do what I need for £10 as 310m is a bit excessive for my short term needs.
