Router for large old house. SU3 poor wifi

With a budget of £50 to 100 what router do people suggest using the awful SU3 in modem mode. 

Our WiFi is terrible and we live in a 1930s large 6 bed home. 

Thanks.

Mike

Re: Router for large old house. SU3 poor wifi

Several people have recommendations on here - just do a search.  Here is a recent example.....

In the meantime have you disabled "channel optimisation" and renamed the network's SSID's as this often improves the usability of a Hub3's wifi ?

Re: Router for large old house. SU3 poor wifi

Many thanks. I'm leaning towards an Asus due to positive experiences of their products. Is there an Asus which somone would recommend. I just don't really understand what I need to be honest.

Thanks.

Many thanks for your help, much appreciated. 

Other than the Asus as per above is there anything else which you would recommend. I don't really know what to look for so if you are saying the Asus above is a good choice, then I'll probably bag that.
