Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid all round performance Bought to replace a very well known modem/router combo that proved totally incapable of running two PS4's as efficiently as one another despite all efforts. (NAT 2 on one, NAT 3 on the other). Has fixed that issue without drama and as a bonus significantly boosted wireless speed and strength throughout the home. Win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy as pie to set up and works like a charm. Bought this as the router that came with my fibre kept booting devices off. Didn't even need to disable the Wi-Fi on the old router, just plugged in an Ethernet cable and the new network was up and running.

I have a Virgin Media Superhub which anything but super, I have gamers in the house complaining about lag/dropout, and various wifi connected devices, 2 of which are cameras, the superhub has issues seeing the cams, will this router solve these problems.

Asked by: GAZZER
It's difficult to offer an effective answer with no info regarding the speed of connection you have or how many individual users you have sharing the service. Adding this router to your current system will give great Wi-Fi in the property but if it's plugged into a router that has slow, poor or sporadic problems then they will still happen as they are likely to be service related. I'd advise contacting the service provider in the first instance to make sure you are receiving the speed and quality of service you are paying for.
