Which router would you recommend to replace the VM Hub?

Hey guys, I recently joined VM with VIVID 100 Package but as everyone knows their router is **bleep**EEEEEEEEEEE - basically, I get wifi signal in my living room, the rest of the rooms nor the bedrooms have any wifi signal, not to mention the garden at the back. The house is a 2-bed house not big at all and still, the router struggles with the signal. 

What router would you recommend to get a decent signal across the rooms?

In the past, I've used a basic TP-Link and it worked super great and is like £14 but I decide to ask here as there might be better ones that don't cost too much.

Hi Dob,

depending on budget and if you're just looking for strong wireless performance there are a good number of hi-powered WiFi cable routers out there.

A really good all-in-one type solution (although not as well known) would be the Synology router. The one linked is the 2600ac but there is also a 1900ac.

You also have well-known brands such as Linksys, Netgear, Asus and TP-Link that will all do decent hardware but features are again mainly price dependent.

I personally use the Linksys WRT1900ac, very good performance both wired and wireless and rock solid stability.

You also have options such as Ubiquity which have a silly mesh Wi-Fi system, in fact if you search for Mesh Wi-Fi you're likely to find some very good solutions if wireless is your main driver for a purchase of hardware.

Firstly I'd set a budget you're comfortable with and go from there.
