Recommend a router


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys,

I've currently got the Superhub 1, but have a need for a dual band router.

Can anyone recommend a dual band router under £100 that's got good range and decent download speeds? I was looking at the D-Link Wireless AC1750?

TP Link Archer C5 £52 and dual band. Obviously the presumption is you will run the superhub in modem only mode

Thanks for the response, seems like a good bit of kit for the money!

TP Link is generally a lot of bang for the buck and a fair few people using their routers around here now

I have not used their routers but i certainly would not recommend their Wireless extenders or their wireless dongles they are awful.

For a little more money its worth spending on a better well known brand atm im using the ASUS AC66U and its a cracking piece of kit.

AMD FX-8320 X8, MSI 990FXA-Gaming, 16GB DDR 3 Cosair Vengence 1600Mhz, 9351.1GB Hard Disk Space, 2GB ATI R9 270 OC PCI-E 16x Graphics, 750watt PSU.

Archer C7 V2 is supposed to be one of the best routers on the market...

http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-wi-fi-router/

Think I've seen it about for around £70 ...

Note I recommend the V2... not the V1, I had the V1 and was a bit flaky and then died!... thankfully after 18 months TP-Link still replaced it with a new one... V2!
