Hub 3 alternative

is there an alternative to the Hub3, it is fine with a few devices connected however once I have 10+ devices connected the speeds and signal seems to become poor, if I switch some devices off then it gets better again

Re: Hub 3 alternative

Put it into Modem Mode and connect your own purchased router

Re: Hub 3 alternative

Yes.  Buy any router or mesh wifi system of your choice, stick the hub in modem mode, job done.  Many of us have done so, but not knowing your situation I'll refrain from recommendations now. 

However, before spending the £70-300 on a suitable setup, be sure that this is a router/wifi problem that you have, not a dodgy cable connection.  Otherwise you can spend any amount you like on wifi gear and it won't improve matters much.
