Anyone know if this router is any good if you have sky q? I’m getting FTTP installed (wires already ran just waiting on installation) and find the current sky hub is poor signal upstairs. can this be used to replace that?

superninja

Thanks. Bad move, using unsupported devices. I still have some hope that that would be like back in the day when winmodems weren't supported because the source for drivers was proprietary but then one day all that changed...😏 :/

No WiFi 6 routers have openwrt support ( this is also a broadcom device so it's not going to get support probably ever)

chippy95

I don’t have a landline and the router supports PPPoE.

It would need to support PPoE to replace the BT smart hub. I’ve not checked of it does this. Also, be careful as BT are rolling out digital phone lines to replace the copper lines and these use the BT hub to either be a DECT base station or the phone line originates from the back of the hub.

These instruction are which I used, I can't claim ownership or responsibility for them, use at your own risk: "The Osprey has 5GHz Wi-Fi but its web interface is missing the option so you need to enable it manually. Using your WebBrowser's javascript console on the WiFi settings page. Firefox: control shift K, Enter: wlanModeGhz=1 countryCode="US" submitValue(); Then click OK in the lightbox alert. Not needed with Firefox 52.5. It's a good idea to check you can connect via USB in case you can't connect over WiFi, e.g. in the case you forget to also set the countryCode, on the Mac it involves running the WebApplication installer that mounts, then after some fiddling you can get 192.168.1.1 to load over USB. Try these settings at your own risk! By default the countryCode="CN", which is China, for some reason it set the 5GHz to a channel that none of my UK devices could connect to. It doesn't have a GB setting so that's why I am using the US, that works fine. or "The more I play with this device the more I am convinced that it was built to be able to do dual band but it doesn't work. It's easy to get it to do 2.4GHz or 5GHZ but not both at once. I have mine running an instance of hostapd on interface wlan0 on channel 1 (i.e. 2.4GHz) and a second instance of hostapd running on interface wlan1 on channel 36 (i.e. 5GHz). This configuration has all been built by the web interface and the QCMAP software on the device (which in turn builds the XML file I mentioned above, which in turn builds the config files for hostapd). It's not me hacking it, although I had to hack it to find out how it worked, but this isn't a hacked config, it was built by their tools. I can even run hostapd in debug mode and see that it says it's broadcasting a beacon on channel 36, but nothing can see it. My theory is that while it's quite happy to create wlan1 which is actually a fake device driven off wlan0, they both have the same MAC address and in all other dual band implementations I've seen the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios have different MAC addresses. ---------- Post added at 12:07 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:20 AM ---------- Chip spec is available as a PDF via google - single MAC/PHY so can only run 1 iface at once. I assume it's built the way it is to support 2 hostapd instances not to support 2.4ghz and 5ghz concurrently but to allow the broadcast of a second 'guest' ssid which is isolated from the main ssid. It can also run in AP-STA mode which makes it function as a wireless bridge, where one interface runs hostapd and the other bridges to another network over wifi. I've switched mine to 5GHz for now. These are all the options you can configure via the web interface = , as detailed earlier: wlanState - 0 to disable wifi, 1 to enable wlanModeGhz - 0 for 2.4GHz, 1 for 5GHz, 2 for 2.4 & 5GHz which does not work wlanMode - frequency to run the 2.4GHz radio on, leave this alone wmode5g - frequency to run the 5GHz radio on, leave this alone wlanSsid - Your 2.4GHz SSID with quote marks around ssid5g - Your 5GHZ SSID with quote marks around hiddenSsid - 0 to hide the 2.4GHz SSID, 1 to broadcast it hiddenSsid_5g - 0 to hide the 5GHZ SSID, 1 to broadcast it wlanChannel - channel to operate the 2.4GHz radio on, usually 1-13 but varies by country, 0 is automatic selection channel_5g - channel to operate the 5GHz radio on, this is a big list, 0 is automatic selection maxNum - maximum number of clients on the 2.4GHz radio - default is 10, I haven't tried changing this maxNum_5g - maximum number of clients on the 5GHz radio - defailt is 10, I haven't tried changing this securityMode - 0 is Disabled (no security), 1 is WEP, 2 is WPA-PSK, 3 is WPA2-PSK, 4 is WPA/WPA2-PSK wepType - 0 is Open, 1 is Shared wepKey - Your WEP key in quotes wpaType - 0 is TKIP, 1 is AES/CCMP, 2 is Auto wpaKey - Your WPA key in quotes countryCode - Your ISO country code in quotes. Used to determine the correct channels to use. CN for China, US for USA, GB for Great Britain, etc etc apIsolation - 0 to disable, 1 to enable So if you wanted to set your unit to 5GHz only, set the 5GHz SSID to Bob and the country code to GB you'd open the javascript console and enter: wlanModeGhz = 1 ssid5g = "Bob" countryCode="GB" submitValue(); Edit gives error message for "submitValue();" but works. With the device connected via USB it appears as 2 removable drives. The first one contains the drivers needed to set it up as a USB NIC, so that the PC connected via USB can connect to the same network as the wifi. Once you're connected like that you can use something like PuTTY to ssh to 192.168.1.1 with a username of root and a password of oelinux123 Once you're at the prompt, there is a command line program for configuring the entire box, LAN settings, WLAN settings, Guest WIFI SSID, Firewall, etc etc. Run: /usr/bin/QCMAP_CLI to get to the menu. Every option is selected via a 2 digit number. This builds an XML file which the whole of the rest of the configuration is built from every time the device starts. So this is where to make changes if you want them to persist. Other useful shell commands: iw reg get This shows the current country code that the wifi is operating in (set via the hidden option in the wifi settings page). It also shows the channels that are available for use in that country that are supported by the device. Example output for GB: root@mdm9625:~# iw reg get country GB: (2402 - 2482 @ 40), (N/A, 20) (5170 - 5250 @ 40), (N/A, 20) (5250 - 5330 @ 40), (N/A, 20), DFS (5490 - 5710 @ 40), (N/A, 27), DFS iwconfig list Lists the capabilities of the wireless device, again a good way to get a decent list of valid channels. As mentioned earlier in the thread the device runs perfectly well just as a bare PCB. The battery is contained within a black plastic housing which also houses the wifi and mobile antennas, so if you remove the housing the device is fairly useless. Without the battery the device powers on immediately from USB power, which is ideal for using in a car for example. All the website files are located in /jrd-resources/resources/webrc/www - /jrd-resources is where all the interesting stuff is really, config files, passwords, website etc. On startup there is some binary process (not a script so I can't see what it's doing) which generates the hostapd configuration files from a combination of the XML file generated by the QCMAP commands and the backups of files in /jrd-resources. When you do a factory reset it copies files back from /jrd-resources into the rest of the system, so these are like the master copies" Edit also see: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/q-alcatel-lucent-mobile-wifi-y855.2806478/

Thanks for sharing @Matt_Donoghue same price as Box.co.uk and can't see cheaper for this item currently :)

sorry too expensive for a 4G router, if it was 5G maybe, got me a 4G Huawei E5770 Pro router some years back with Ethernet port and SIM card slot and 5200mAh battery so also a power bank that charges your phones and tablet on the go etc for about £40 and im still using it :)

These are great - got them recently and the main benefit over the "non-Pro" line is that you get the option to have 4 SSID and more importantly, you can split 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz connections - we have certain tech devices that don't like the combined 2.4+5Ghz SSIDs (even though they should work in theory - they work very poorly with a combined ssid). Plus you get a wall +ceiling mount included Main downfalls over the RBK50 is that you do not have the option to add on Netgear Armour and Circle Parental Controls via the app. I also compared the wifi speed and stability and the Pro was a clear winner - it's a no brainer (given the above caveats) as they're similar price. .

Not bad for a 3 pieces one with Wifi 6

polarbaba

I've got a hitron virgin business router, and currently a Huawei q2 pro mesh. Not very feature rich!

gavin1

The devices still need to connect to your Wi-fi. The VPN runs over the Wi-fi not replacing it. Blocking the IP/Wi-fi Mac should still work. You could go the other way around, blocking all MAC and only whitelisting the ones you know are good, but that’s more of a chore. Alternatively can you block the ports the VPN uses, at lease in their devices, but a lot of this comes down to how flexible the parental controls are in the router.

just bought the TP link X60 and its absolutely brillaint, was looking at this one but the x60 came with 3 hubs

Not a bad system but a few problems. There is no dedicated backhaul for WiFi and only 1 ethernet port on each satellite. The key problem of not having the dedicated backhaul is your max speed essential halves or more if you aren't connected to the main router. This shouldn't be an issue if your internet is slower than the capability of Wifi 6 but I think the Orbi system (also from Netgear) with dedicated backhaul is better especially if you plan on daisy chaining the satellites as each satellite away from the router has half the speed capability.

I've had Tenda Mw12-3 for a year or so. Rock solid. Can now stream 4k anywhere in the house. Not wifi6 though. One node has an xbox and pc connected to 2 of the 4 ethernet ports. Working well.

Where has Mesh been all my life? I got a velop ax Mesh system and its the only thing that has worked. Just a shame it randomly restarts due to overheating, has to put a usb fan on all of them.

Nuke

Most mobile devices built in the last year or 2 will be wifi 6. And to get the best of the WiFi 6 speed wise you will want a WiFi 6 device but all devices on the network will benefit from WiFi 6 regardless to make use of the additional bandwidth. This would be doubly useful to a pub due to it would have more concurrent users than the average household.

AFAIK you need WiFi 6 devices to benefit from WiFi 6 router?
