SH2 and SH3 both with issues for gamers - what solution?

So for those that don't know, the SH2 has issues in that it drops 5G connection frequently and can only be run on 2G, which drops connection only occasionally.  See here:

http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Networking-and-wireless/Superhub-2-5GHz-problem-connecting-some-...

However, swopping to SH3 if you're a gamer is a terrible, terrible idea.  See here:

and here:

So therefore my question is:

To those experienced with both gaming AND networking, what solution do you recommend?  I have read somewhere that you can put the SH2 into modem-mode (or is it router-mode?) and use another router (modem?) for the Wifi.  If so, which device is recommended for this?

 

Thanks,

A

Why is WiFi dropouts on the SH2 in the mix?

Use the SH2 wired.

Or if you are serious about gaming, SH2 in modem mode and a standalone router- as much Asus as you budget will stand...

Amazon usually list the ASUS RT-AC68U at under 100 quid.

I can't use the SH2 wired when it's plugged into the TV and the computer is upstairs...

thanks for the recommendation on the ASUS.

See your just not DETERMINED enough...

I was using power-lines for upstairs but got sick of slow transfers of large files. So the grout came out of the tiled hallway, hall stairs and landing carpet ripped up,  the boards came up, the back of the stairs was removed and now its all CAT6 cabled...

A bit extreme admittedly but worth the hassle in the end. Teenage gamer is now giving my head peace.
