Xiaomi MI WiFi Wireless Router 3G Powerful router with possibility installing customise firmware OpenWRT (Lede) Or Padavan
MarcinLDN

roll_me_some: Would this be better than the virgin superhub? Padavan firmware is based on Asus firmware have ton of options. Hardware if this router is very good for price. Both hardware and software mare magic combination 😁 Personally I used openwrt (lede). Linux based and can be a bit tricky to set up. But once setup correctly works as a charm. Especially function sqm qos.

roll_me_some

Would this be better than the virgin superhub?

Zeketron

1) yes. Disable the WiFi on the Virgin unit and connect an ethernet cable to the Xiaomi router. 2) from memory I think you can set up a normal profile and a guest profile.

GR2

looks like a good deal. question for the techies on the cfw options: 1) can this be used with a virgin router in modem mode? 2) is it possible to setup to provide mutiple wireless profiles, e.g. guest profile, vpn profile, open profile?

This perceived USP is nothing more than a mouse click for non-killer hardware. You then get the same results. In fact, the true USP is the hardware specs and belies its true price a similar bit of kit should sell for. You probably didn’t do your home work and read the spec sheets to know that whatever marketing blurb that is copied and pasted here (and wrongly relied on) will show that this true £250 router is very likely significantly better than the £60 you have from several years ago.

ristac

Exactly why people like yourself are bad for HUKD - Is this cheaper elsewhere? NO Next time you post a deal, read what HUKD asks you to do, they specifically ask you not to post marketing text or specs. I can't believe I am sitting here answering to you because you have a bee in your bonnet about something.

SamuraiHQ

While I agree to a certain extent, the fact remains that if someone like myself doesn't have the compatible hardware to allow it to work at it's peak performance, this device is no better than my current Asus router which I'm looking to replace, and I purchased for £60 3 years ago. The price of this is most double, but the specs don't justify an upgrade unless you're looking for a new router for the first time, or the specs of your current one are obsolete. There's much more competively priced routers out there which offer similar specs, without the 'Killer' feature.

SamuraiHQ

I struggle to understand where you both came to the conclusion that I'm not 'taking it easy' or 'uptight'. You posted a deal with minimal details. You simply copied and pasted the least amount of info, and most of it was not even relevant to the actual product. What you've copied and pasted could apply to 99% of routers available. Why didn't you include the top part of the page which states... The first router purpose-built to prioritize gamingThe Killer Prioritization Engine identifies, prioritizes and accelerates gaming network traffic above all else, to reduce peak ping by up to 77%Synchronizes with Killer-enabled PCs--from brands such as AlienwareTM, GigabyteTM, MSITM and RazerTMPromotes simultaneous high-speed data processingThe WRT32X gives you dominating Next-Gen AC Wi-Fi speeds up to 3.2 Gbps that keep you at the top of your gameEach connected client device receives its own dedicated data stream, so multiple users won't have to compete with one another for bandwidthThe WRT32X gaming router also features a pro-grade Gigabit Ethernet switch with four ports, making it ideal for connecting multiple gaming rigs or consoles at your next LAN partyDynamic frequency selection (DFS) certification from the FCC not only allows operation at 160MHz enabling Tri-Stream160, but it also triples the channels available at 80MHz so the WRT32X can operate in the clearest airspace that other routers aren't allowed There's no mention that the ports are gigabit rated (highly important in this day and age, given that many people including myself are on high speed Internet). No mention of the fact that the device is technically disabled unless you have additional hardware installed or you're willing to spend extra to have it. You failed to mention the speeds this device is capable of, nor the fact that it's not sold by Amazon, or fulfilled by Amazon. It's sold by eBuyer on Amazon's website. Which means after 30 days, if you develop a fault or wish to return it - unless Amazon are feeling generous, they will tell you to deal with eBuyer. Very, very lazy post. Voted cold for the reasons stated above.

The 'Killer' feature is but a very minor piece of what makes this router a good purchase.

Got this the other week from Amazon Warehouse (Like New) for roughly the same price. It replaced a 4 year old TP-Link Archer C5 which was struggling with the increased amounts of gadgets hammering it at any given time. Great piece of kit with all the features you'd want in a modern router.

S23

I bought the BT mesh network and also this. Can wholeheartedly say that the mesh network option is no good unless you buy a number of the expensive units. This gave me the coverage I needed for a lesser price tag. Try this first IMO

sonofgojira

Get a mesh system like Google WiFi. No guarantees any singular router will be any better than what u got unless u know how to delve deeper. Mesh will do all the grunt work for you and setup is super easy (especially on Google WiFi).

emmatbenjamin

Question to you all that know your stuff. We have just recently upgraded to max virgin fibre optic. The coverage is pants! In a standard 3 bed house cant get a decent signal in the bathroom. Would it be best to get a new modem or a extender and if so which one? This one? Thanks in advance

Crill

That may be the case, it's somewhat subjective, but it's the best price available for this at the moment which is what is meant to quantify a hot deal here

How would I replace my homehub with this? Does it take a lot of configuration? Hate the HH as it's useless for for mesh systems.

Thesman106

Ok but my point is that this deal is not a good deal in the first place. There are always reason why expensive hardware exists. It just up to the consumer understand the need of specific hardware. For me having a good routers means I can perform back up and stream content from my Nas set up. Just don't go shooting down something you don't understand :p. Also the point about 4G rollover is quite meh. Since the days of unlimited data plan are long gone for 4g and doesn't really justify the price of this piece of hardware (router)

jasee

It depends what you mean by new, originally it was internal modem inside pc or laptop, then external with single rj45 connection, then external with four rj45 connections, then same with wireless 2.4G, then the same with both bands, now (apparently) backwards to modemless router with both bands! ISPs give router,modem and wi-fi. ISP modem/routers sometimes contain unnecessary features which can't be disabled by users and can be remotely controlled by the ISP.. This modem has features which are not IFAICT in any ISPs modem, it is configurable for ADSL, and it has fall over to 4G. Anyone who has had any router/modem for any length of time will know that occasionally the line drops or the router/modem just stalls or your connection speed is not as good as you think it should be. Some of this may be down to contention ratio, but too much emphasis is placed IMO on fancy wireless routers by hotdeal posters, letting their old ISP provided modem to do a mediocre job

Thesman106

I see what you mean, its a matter of preference really. But router and modem combos are relatively a new revelation, it was only in the recent few years you saw theses combos been sold from isps. However I didn't say that isps routers are any good or rich in features, that would be the reason why i commented on this post. But my point is for this price, you can certainty do a lot better for the same price or even cheaper. I'm not too sure what you mean here, but if you are talking about conserving the amount of ports on a dedicated router(?), they usually have a dedicated WAN port that only connects to your modem with the additional 4 extra ethernet ports.

jasee

i disagree. It makes more sense to integrate a modem in a router. That is the way it used to be always done and it made sense then the router is shared directly by all the ports on the router, not just through one. Admittedly at gigabit speed in the case of one connection. If you use your isp's old router as a modem, then you will probably have to change it if you move to fibre. Additionally this has fallback to 4G. I've never seen this in an ISPs router. This router's modem offers features not normally seen on ISPs routers, including IPV6 support. and signal strength adjustment as is a better replacement for BT routers for home users :) As regards wi-fi. There's a lot of smoke and mirrors about! If you want better wi-fi speed around a house, it makes more sense to simply use wi-fi exenders to take a stronger signal to the weaker signal areas by wi-fi or using routers as extenders ideally via cable or via powerline adapters. Having all the aerials in one place is never going to work as well as this. Particularly when that place is normally on the ground floor on one side of the house!

Sorry mate, only just seen this. I've no complaints at all so far. I switched to Milwaukee about 18 months ago so all are fairly new, and I'm having a bit of time off at the minute so they haven't been getting daily hammer for the last 8 months or so, but they've not let medown so far, touch wood.

Not at all. We had plenty of Festool gear. But not everything. They're not the best at everything and a lot of stuff is no better than the competition that costs less. I'm nobody's fan-boy, I buy each tool on it's own merits.

All I had to do was add it in Mi Home (I already own a bunch of Mi stuff so used to Mi Home), entered my wi-fi password and that was it. It created a duplicate network with _plus at the end and signal in my bedroom is full 4 bars instead of wavering 1-2 bars.

The Ethernet port is for plugging into a wall, at a hotel room for instance, so you only pay for one internet service but you can connect multiple devices. That, or it’s an emergency router. The transfer feature does actually work well. SD card and USB stick/Hard Drive connected, go into the app and select what you want to move on the SD card and where you want to move it to. It’s as simple as that.

IAmTheDude

If you like fiddling, you can do the same (albeit DIY'd) with a Pi ZeroW. I had a play recently for something similar (wireless hotspot to transfer photos from phone to a HDD) and to stream from HDD to the phone using custom web pages etc. Allbeit is a very DIY project and nowhere near as 'nice' looking (the Pi laggy-banded round a 2.5 HDD and power bank lol), it is pretty cool to play around with.

Sephiroth

I just got mine and I'm already disappointed. I thought I would be able to hook it up to a device that doesn't have wifi via an ethernet cable and then give that device an internet connection via the FileHub wifi. Turns out the ethernet port can only connect to a router. I've no idea why I would ever use it that way because my router has wifi (obviously) and plugging this into it would consume a valuable port. The one use case I can benefit from with this is being able to backup photos while on holiday, assuming SD card to USB transfer works as I expect. For that it's probably worth having but I was hoping to get more out of it.

darknesskai

I’ve been trying to connect it to my fire stick (apparently you can do it). But I have no idea how so I’ve just given up. Luckily I’ll use it as expandable storage for my phone and tablet.

darknesskai

It’s basic and doesn’t include certain functions. You’re best connecting to it directly in the WiFi section of your phone etc. Then going to your browser and typing 10.10.10.254 in the address bar. You can connect from there and have access to a few more features.

Most likely interference. The BT hub isn’t as smart as it says it is, I had a similar issue solved by simply changing the channel in the hub menu manually. Type 192.168.l.254 into a browser and use login info on the back of the router. If you have an Iphone the Apple airport utitility app has a nifty simple trick of checking channels on nearby networks if you have the same channel as one of them it could be the issue. You want to choose a channel that you don’t see as often (or preferably at all) in the list to lessen any interference. There are lots of other ways of checking nearby channels. You may have already tried this step. Hope this helps. Edit: If this doesn’t work then I recommend a full factory reset and if no joy it is probably a hardware issue.

So had it running for a month now... Coverage and speed is fantastic. No drop outs so far. Very easy to set up and the app and features within are great. I’ve only got 37Mb max speed but on doing speed test it’s getting pretty close each time. I’m full bars on the WiFi on my iPhone virtually everywhere and only drops one bar at worst now. Have coverage in my entire garden where I didn’t before and even down the road! For the bit of gaming I do, it’s definitely improved the lag I used to get. It’s obviously expensive for something that you set up and don’t really pay any attention to, but it’s easy to forget what a great job it does. Highly recommended. Any questions or if you want to know how something works on it let me know. Jim

What are your early thoughts on it Jim? After spending money on Home plugs then being plagued with dropouts I paid out for a tp-link router to try and improve my woeful Virgin 3.0 Hub. That’s not really doing the trick either so final extreme step is toplough into this Amplifi HD setup!

Ultimately I just want strong good internet/Wifi around the house for various equipment. Be interesting to hear how you get on with this kit! (y)

This kit isn’t the fastest or cheapest, that’s for sure. I’ve watched and read a lot of reviews. This is the only one that reports consistently good strength with no or very few drop outs. Ubiquiti have a good grounding with this tecn from the commercial side so I feel confident it will be a well supported product. Clearly I can’t comment on the other products and they may well be better in several aspects. I know for me, my fibre speed is reasonably poor anyway, but I need good coverage for my property due to IP cameras and a whole host of the usual WiFi reliant devices throughout the house, this I’m confident will sort me out. Should I come back eating my hat, I’ll let you know! Mine arrives Thursday so will give it a good test. Jim

Just out of interest, with a fair amount of people experiencing drop-outs with mesh kits, or not covering the area stated - then wouldnt something like this suit better? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Linksys-WRT32X-UK-AC3200-Dual-Band-Prioritisation/dp/B075GWBC22/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIz4-2tYDi2gIVRLYYCh20DAK3EAAYASAAEgLwSfD_BwE Or even this: https://www.techradar.com/reviews/asus-rt-ac86u Central location would cover your home, cheaper and more powerful with great speeds? I'm asking out of interest as I am trying to figure out what to buy for a new home to ensure I have full WiFi coverage - so any advice appreciated in this area.
