If you want to stick with Asus then go for the excellent RT-AC86U which like the N56U is a stand-alone router only.

True, it ain't cheap but its Asus' highest rated 2-band router with a 64 bit high spec Broadcom CPU and wifi radios. If that is out of your price range then consider the Asus Blue cave router @£124.99 from Amazon, usual price is around £190. Though the price of £124.99 is for Prime Members only (take out a free AP trial to get around this)

If the Blue Cave is still out of your reach then consider something like the RT-AC66U or TP Link Archer C7, both of which are less than £100. But like with most things in life, you get what you pay for smile

Thanks for your time and effort.

The n56u was perfect for my house full wifi/ethernet speeds no matter where I was.

I'm assuming 86 n 66 n c7 are newer models and probably more powerful then n56.

PN hub 1 gives full speed via ethernet, but half speeds on wifi, nowhere near my 10 year old n56.

If I do go for 66u or c7 hopefully its similar to n56 or better.

Ive seen a n56u on ebay for 20+ pounds, but if 66u n c7 are better i might upgrade if better.

Just seen a TP-Link ARCHER D7 1750 Mbps 10/100/1000 Wireless AC Router
is that better then c7?

Its going for 40 quid or best offer.

Asus RT-AC66u

56.00

Which ones more powerful.

Go for the Archer D7, its newer so will have better wifi radios. It also has a ADSL2+ modem built in but it can be used in router only mode as it has a WAN port. Have a gander here where you can see the router settings in 'emulator' mode:
