This is interesting. I was thinking of getting an Asus router - on Amazon the reviews are good for replacing the Hub 3 so it makes me wonder when you say that the Asus sometimes have a problem with the Hub 3.
I'm looking at these Asus models: RT-AC68U, AC87U, AC86U, and AC3200.
Interestingly, the October issue of PC Pro magazine does not include any Asus routers in its comparison. The winner was the Linksys EA9500. The article does not reflect Virgin Media at all so it is hard to come to a conclusion.
The Netgear R9000 is a crazy price - over £300.
Any advice on Netgear routers specifically for Virgin Media would be very helpful. Also Linksys and TP-Link Archer.
