Any recommendations, I just want one that will allow me to access a server remotely... No other particular features needed - so the cheaper the better. I'm on Vodafone gigafast

KrisTfur

If you read through some of the comments from other threads on HDUK Asus always gets spoken about positively. From my (limited) understanding you can use 3rd party firmware on the Asus to add more features etc. Not sure on D-Link as haven't heard much about them recently. Hopefully someone else can comment and share experiences or add a more technical insight!

I haven't experienced any issues with Chromecast but don't know about the Ring and have heard of similar issues (not necessarily related to AmpliFi) with devices not liking WiFi 5Ghz protocol. Have you tried creating an additional 2.4Ghz SSID on the device nearest to your Ring bell and connecting it to it. Give this a try and see if it helps. I don't think that the Unifi units would be any different in dealing with this as it is usually a problem with the client device rather than the network source. Also can you just confirm that you have the AmpliFi HD kit with one router and 2 mesh points or are you using 2 routers and are your devices all running the same (and the latest) firmware version?

r8sso

I've had issues with my Chromecast devices connecting to one AmpliFi HD AP and my phone still being connected to another in the house and then not being able to pick up the Chromecast. My Ring Chime will also not work on the Amplifi HD mesh setup, apart from those two gripes I like it. Would have liked to have had the time/knowledge to setup multiple Unify AC UAC Lite points, maybe next time. Would the Unify Lite points deal with this issue better than the AmpliFi HD mesh or be just the same?

Had the MW6 and they went back. Devices were connected to the furthest node away, speed was poor and I had issues with Alexa devices. I have a house full of spots, shows and echos. They were all ok apart from the echo devices. Both kept disconnecting, became slow to respond and would cut out during Spotify playback. It’s a shame as phone WiFi signal seemed great around the house but it’s like devices were bounces around the boded with consequences! If I went to the garden with my work laptop, I had great signal strength but it would boot me out of my works secure system. Think I’m going to go for a really good router and see if that works instead.

Robbo_59

Thanks. I tried that and it seems to work. Still not massively fast but better. It doesn't help that my Moto G7 Power notoriously has WiFi issues for that model but turning off the WiFi scanning helped.

Robbo_59

I run them in Bridge mode. I'm going to try the total reset more in hope than anticipation.

poshram

Also, don't run them in DHCP mode, but in bridge mode. Made this change a while back and made a massive difference for me

BT router you also can't separate modem with router....the other option is a bridge...so use bt router modem and new router to do the heavy lifting as such as routing and WiFi...with this setup the NAT is done from original modem/router...I believe but not 100% sure.

Over the last few months I’ve tried most mesh systems including Google, BT offerings and Linksys. The best by far is EERO hands down - it’s reliable and the app is a joy to use - I highly recommend the eero system. - I purchased a three pack but only need 2 in order to achieve full coverage so one pro will be sold on ebay.

ayce

The Ubiquiti Amplifi HD mesh is an awesome alternative for the 3 pack if interested.

sjaddy

Good Price but according to this it does drop to £299 every 3 months or so. If you don't need may be worth waiting?

adiejam

I tend to use forums rather than reviews on amazon, but look at the reviews on the standard Eero system and wireless community’s on Reddit etc and Eero is doing brilliant at the moment. Mine is on order, and with people i know who have them said they are brilliant and 3 x Deco M9 users and a few M5 users i know all have issues. I will set mine up tomorrow and compare - but the biggest test is over time. So I will keep both for 10 days and use the Eero and see what the feedback is on both and keep the best performer!!! But so far the M9 has been terrible. Since my last post on here, my wife mobile won’t connect to wifi and my mobile will not load the sonos app, spoke to Sonos and its due to a both systems conflicting and they have also said they have known of a lot of the TP-Link and Netgear systems not work at times. He did say to create an individual IP number for them on the Deco app and this might cure the crashing of the SONOS system. I’d get it while the deal is on and try it - if no good, send it back. That’s what I’m doing.

I was fairly skeptical ordering these when the Tenda MW5s performed so poorly and these not being that different from them being dual band. Right out of the gate these things are a million times better for me. Living room speeds connected to the main eero hits maximum speed on my line at 352mb which I never seen the Superhub 3 manage to do. My PC upstairs is now wired into the back of the second eero and that hits 312mb when before they were getting 105mb using Tenda gigabit powerline adapters. I just need to keep an eye on my Neos cams for the next few days as it was those that had the most issues with the MW5s. Overall though so far, I'm glad I went for these and if performance stays the same I wouldn't have been disappointed spending the usual £249.

sheppy1241

It’s one of those with these, with sky q, if you have mini boxes as well, you might have issues as sometimes the mesh clash, these are the best ones I have had with my sky q setup. Technically you should turn the WiFi off on the sky q router. I have tried 2 methods and both have been pretty solid. 1. Without turning off sky router, do a new network name for the eero, then move all your stuff onto this only. Have nothing on the sky routers ssd. 2. Turn off the sky routers WiFi, you will lose all the sky Q stuff, go into the hidden eng settings, and re-do the network setup but choose you are using a different broad band provider, this actually forces the mini boxes to use 2.4ghz which will give them more range. At the moment I am currently on opt 2, though 1 worked fine as well. Yes the should give you more range, though I do have three, the BT Discs and the nova ones gave more range with 2 I found but had lots of issues with the mini boxes for my setup with these even adopting the above methods, settled on these the apps great and really easy to use as well, these were my last option before giving up, really pleased with them, though on exp side..

johnnyd57uk

Ive never done anything with routers except update the firmware. If I were to replace my BT modem with this would I have to change any settings and would it be worth it ? do you think. Modem is current BT version.

Midlanders

You can usually find the Asus 66_B1 for £79-89. It has the same internals as this model and uses the same firmware in custom ROMs like Merlin. Only difference is the theoretical maximum bandwidth it supports on different bands of 1750 to 1900, which isn't much of a difference considering the price difference and use case.

fizz

I have got the non modem version of this. Had for years and is very reliable, occasionally Once or twice a year needs a restart. I’ve plugged my Virgin one in to the router and then set the Virgin router to modem only mode. Range is okay for me WiFi one, if i find one cheap i will mesh them up. I run mine with Merlin, there are VPN options and only tried it once. Plenty of info on the RT-68U around the web as its popular

Sorry no experience with the Tenda stuff. Good luck with it. Hopefully your not with Sky...... I have 6 eero mesh routers. They work with anything, currently running 4 Dots, 3 Google minis, 2 Fire Sticks, 2 Google TV things, various mobiles, laptops, iPads, switches and more etc. Absolutely rock solid, zero issues. Absolute bar steward to set up. Had to get Eero support to do it. Probably more of an issue with my location and provider Sky ADSL, as the app needs a mobile data signal which I don't have. Would I buy again? Yup. But not at that price. I paid 174.00 for 3 in late march from Amazon. Why 6? Long house, thick internal walls and it covers an outbuilding as well.

Mine arrived today - there is a bridge mode, they call it "Access Point mode". There was a "VPN" section in full router mode, but there's no VLAN functionality (beyond the ISP settings) unfortunately, so mine is sitting behind an opewrt-running Archer C7 which is handling my guest ssid (on the guest VLAN). Hopefully openwrt / dd-wrt will support it before too long.

I had the r7800 but it died on my a couple of weeks ago after only 2 years so bought this from John Lewis after a lot of reseaching. The main differences I found was that the R7800 had a slighly better range into my garden (Im talking 1-2 metres max) but this has a better output. Im on virgin 200 and on wifi at the furthest range I get up to 90mb but with R7800 I was getting max 40mb. This is a wifi6 so future proofed plus a John Lewis 3 year warranty and easy setup this is a no brainer in my opinion even at full price. Im actually thinking of buying a cheap n router and using as an AP mode with this to give me the extra range. Also it does have a bridge mode.

wildswan

I got the outdoor one working great. 5g signal all the way down the 35 metre garden

I have one wifi6 device but this router has made a world of difference to stability. Over 40 various wired and wireless devices, even got external tp access point for the garden which is just as fast as my broadband speed - it is hard wired

Quick question How are these with Sonos and Phillips Hue both these systems use a bridge to connect to my wifi, will these find the 'eero network' if thats what they use?

I have 6 of these covering a large, long 4 bed heavy stone built house with a 2 room outbuilding. Had to get Eeroo support to set the first one up, then took 15 minutes to set the rest up. One SSID, rock solid performance, CCTV caneras plugged into two. Expensive, but great so far.

fizzybenilyn

With Virgin hub, you connect it via Ethernet to the existing router, run the Eero setup on the app on your phone and 5 mins later, you’re good to go. It’s recommended to turn off your existing WiFi networks but I had to leave mine up for a week as eero doesn’t support WEP so I couldn’t get connected to my wireless printer and I had to wait for a new printer cable arriving in the post. I didn’t notice any real problems with having three networks on the go but I have turned the others off now anyway

I get what you’re saying, but I get/got 110+ over WiFi. If you lived local I would have loved to help you work it out, because ubiquity gear is really good stuff.

shotmaker

Hi there, Are we talking about the home hub 6 transfer speed I showed in a picture earlier? That was 28.8 Megabytes per second (MB), which equates to around 230mbps (mb). I can get 100-110 MBps but only with 2 devices directly wired into the router, that speed being not far off the theoretical gigabit LAN speed on my network. I felt that 28.8 MB/230mb per second over wifi wasn't a bad result! As for buying a cheap openreach modem, if I'm being honest at that point I kind of begrudged spending more money and waiting more days, even if it was only a little bit more, after spending so much already and putting in so many hours with it. Especially when I couldn't guarantee it would work for me. Also, the amplifi does have a bridge mode that is meant to run just fine - tech support agents were fully endorsing bridge mode and I believe for a time that people used to complain that bridge mode was actually faster on it? (I did try it both in and out of bridge mode though). However, that doesn't invalidate what you're saying by any means because it clearly had a great impact on your setup. I asked for suggestions and you were kind enough to give one, you couldn't have done much more. If this deal ever comes up again I reckon if you were to suggest to newcomers to get themselves a cheap openreach modem as one of the first comments, they'd benefit greatly from your experience. As for me, I went with an alternative network setup which is working great. The very lowest transfer speed I've seen is 25MB (200 Mb) per second with it, but it's nearly always higher. I'm able to gamestream in 4K and there hasn't been a single lag spike or drop. Also it's using old tech I had laying around the house, so was essentially free - which is in the HUKD spirit as a pretty good deal I suppose! At any rate, I'm happy with it. Cheers! (y)

Chris_Aston-Roebuck

In the nicest possible way your setup had serious issues. When you showed the BT transfer speed, IIFC, it was about 29-30mbps, why?? It should be 110-120? There won’t be a difference in this and a BT HH6 when you are in range, the HH6 is a great router but does not possess the feature set or range expandability like this does. I had this system and it was right up there. For the sake of a fiver I can’t get my head around why you didn’t just buy an original open reach modem and set it you properly like I suggested.

shotmaker

Thats a fair enough suggestion but I did do that - I tried tech support and the amplifi reddit. The reddit had people asking if I was 12 in response to me being reasonable, explaining the issues and my test results, but also pointing out how disappointed I was that the amplifi couldn't match a free router despite working with it for hours. Lovely. As for tech support, the agents themselves were friendly but had to pass my issue on to the developer team who were terrible! Days later, the dev team told me that the difference in speed wasn't that bad, so basically it wasn't an issue! Also, I should try wired over wireless! They might as well have told me to turn it off and on again! Plus, the ISP router was also wireless when it beat the amplifi HD. So first of all to say the difference in speed isn't that bad so it's fine? The difference -is- that bad when the amplifi is nearly £300 and the ISP router is free. When you go to tech support because your expensive equipment isn't performing as well as something free, getting a reply of "it's not that much worse" is about the worst thing you can hear. They were basically telling me to go do one! Regarding how they told me to hook everything up wired - first, the ISP router wasn't wired either. Second, when I did test everything wired up, the amplifi HD was still worse. Third, the amplifi HD is marketed as and designed to be a wireless system, that's why it comes with a couple of wireless AP points and advertises massive wifi range. It just didn't perform. Anyway. It probably sounds like I'm on some kind of weird brigade against amplifi, but I'm over it - got my refund and I'm happy with the alternative setup I put in. I was just very dissatisfied with the entire experience and thought it only fair to let people know exactly how it went. I stick by my statement that it's the most disappointing product I've ever spent money on. I've no issue with anyone who likes it, or anyone who it's working great for - my only issue is with the product and customer experience itself. There were only three positives to the entire experience - scan, who refunded me with no issues after hearing how awfully the router performed. The amplifi tech support agents (NOT the bloody developer team) who were genuinely friendly and tried to be helpful. And the people here on HUKD who were far friendlier than the amplifi reddit.

Just tested mine and I'm getting 20 on a 70Mbps BT connection. More than enough for me on a device like this. Also, it's tiny! Much more portable than I expected.

Just received this today. Set it up in bridge mode and tested the download speeds. Unfortunately only getting just over 3 Mbps whereas when I connect directly to my Virgin hub on 2.4Ghz I'm getting 54 Mbps. Tried varying distances from the hub all with same results. Think I'll be returning this back and keeping an eye out for an alternative manufacturer

This. The eero isn’t as good :)

I have virgin and a superhub 3 and it's generally been OK but having my partner an I working from home and my son off it's showing up the issues with it so was thinking of getting a router and the idea of adding mesh points is appealing. I can't decide between this and the cheaper eero though.

I have it and its working great now after the a few hiccups. 2 x old pc wifi cards didn't connect. Probably something to do with them being 32 bit ones. Even a replacement newer wifi card for pc's did not connect. Support was kind enough to refer me to Microsoft support 😜 Also powerline adapters wont work. So got some fast wifi usb dongles which sorted out the problem. As suggested above its better to get more routers than the points if you want more ethernet ports at both ends. Also switches to expand the 1x usuable eth ports on routers. The points dont have any. With only routers I guess you'll loose out on the google assistant that the points have. Overall satisfied with my setup now.

If you have BT FTTP broadband, you dont need a modem, you can directly connect the ethernet cable coming from the broadband box to any google home wifi or nest wifi router with following settingsPPPoE username - bthomehub@btbroadband.com password - btMTU - 1580Best investment was purchasing google home wifi mesh when you have 25+ devices connecting to wifi and large to medium house to have good wifi coverage.
