Im looking at getting a 3rd party router because let’s face it the Hub 3 is poor. My budget is around £150. I live in a 3 bed semi detached house. There are 4 of us here. I work from home and the kids are schooling from home too. Couple of us are gamers as well.
Any help and recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
I assume you mean wireless router. £150 is a good amount to pay.
The Asus range is well regarded on here - but also look at Mesh Systems - like TP-Link Deco M4/M5 as these are also well liked

A mesh is likely to provide more range - so better connectivity over a wider area. The best speed/performance will be from the mesh unit connected directly to the hub as the others have to send traffic to that one first before it goes wherever it’s going..
If you compare a router with that primary mesh point, I don’t imagine you’d see much performance difference tbh..
