Summary: In case anyone is wondering it ok to use this with your BT open reach FTTC modem. I am with plusnet and the router they use is terrible. Got this to replace it and so far so good, it seems a little hot though worried about over heating but ill be back if that happens to change this review.
A solid Dual-Band router but CAUTION is needed after set-up!

Summary: As we head towards the mid-point of the year 2014, pretty much all of our new tech is 'connected' in some way, if you wish to use it to its full potential. All of these wireless devices demanding access to the Internet can bring many an older Wi-Fi router to its knees and this is the position I...
It's looks are spoiled by exposing the wires, otherwise great.

Summary: This is ONLY a router, you will need an existing modem to access the internet. Some reviews mention that this isn't mentioned in the description. To be fair, if an item doesn't mention that it IS a combined modem router I wouldn't assume that it was.
Summary: OK, slightly superseded by the RT-N66U (which I also have - I used this one as a secondary access point to get total coverage in the house), but still a very competent high speed and capable router and wireless access point.
Summary: after reading tons of reviews about this i decided to buy it. to my surprise it was constantly disconnecting the 2.5GHz band and the worst was the fact that the video streaming was 2-5fps on 5GHz. so i returned and bought the asus rt-n66u which worked like a charm.
Slick, Solid, reliable and great Range Plus it Never Needs to be Rebooted!

Summary: I won't go into the specs or the fact it doesnt have an ADSL modem built in - because all the other reviews say this kind of information. What I will say is that I have bought literally hundreds of routers over the past 15 years, with ADSL, without, for home, for businesses and all seem to need to...
Summary: After having and getting sick of BT Homehubs (I have BT infinity ) I upgraded to this. Wish I had done it sooner. The Homehub regularly dropped connections and I got a replacement. That also dropped connections until I downgraded the security key setting.
Summary: I'll start by saying I've only had this unit for a day, but my usage isn't likely to change with time and I have been pretty impressed with it so far. I bought it to replace a Netgear WNDR3700v2 which, after a firmware upgrade, would drop WiFi connections about every three hours.
Summary: Wow! This was the 3rd wifi router I've brought in the past year. I had even considered splashing serious cash on the latest technology from Apple - but the reviews for this were excellent. This is seriously fast - and it looks pretty smart too.
