Re: New Router for Plusnet Fibre.Need Suggestions

A couple of questions need to be answered:
What router do you currently have?
Why do you want to change it?

Hi @sully48,
Looks like you've been using the fibre variant of a TG582n from us.
If you take a browse/search through some of the previous posts on there you're likely to find some router recommendations from others.

  _Adam_Walker_  you know the router come from you it has low recommends to use it does not have high speed ports i think thats what sully48 looking for and other providers going into use the dsl port with there routers too bt has done it and EE to take out the bt openreach modem i think plusnet have to think about combined router with integrated VDSL for self installs then haveing bt openreach coming out soon or later bt openreach will stop installs they will only do the line works maybe end of next year

The 2 box solution is actually more versatile, as you have wider choice of wireless routers out there ... The downside is that its two boxes which many don't like.
Back to the OP,
are you connecting via wireless or wired?
Also how many devices are you planning to connect ?
Do you have any wireless dead spots?
What kind of budget do you have ?
