No idea really, but i can put through books so need something that will do the job, ive tried asus routers in the past and sent them back. I need a good solid at least 25m range through walls etc and to the 3rd floor of a house ( loft conversion)
A single wifi router might not solve all your issues - particularly if it needs to deliver good wifi up to the third floor. Might be better off getting a modest price wireless router and wifi access points or a Mesh system to provide total wifi coverage. One possibility is to get the new router and see how it performs in those far away spots - if it is still not good there then you could retro-add one or two access points (the Ubiquiti range is well regarded here) or a "cheaper" mesh system.
In the meantime, some recent recommendations on here from satisfied users of mid priced routers (or wireless access points.)
-------------------- Services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired 2 WiFi,) SH2 in modem mode with Airport Extreme Router. On VIVID200, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.
ok so i went for the netgear 7200 X10 SH3 into modem mode all works fine wifi is better and it sorted my invalid IP address issues.
However yesterday about 3PM the original issue happend again wifi fine but no LAN connection, spoke to VM and they went through a reset process and i plugged a laptop directly to the SH3 and i had connection, then plugged the laptop into the Router and all seems fine, I had connection back via LAn connections.
This morning fired up the PC in the office and same issue no connection no identified network.
Rebooted everythig several times and eventually got the LAN connections back working.
Why does this keep happening?
Incidentally when i tried to plug the laptop into the SH3 i had to pull it our of the cupboard and it restarted itself??? Same happened when on the phone to VM.
I think the SH3 is giving up???? How easy is it to get VM to send out a new SH3
Any help welcome to try and avoid it dropping out again!
