I have one of these & it hugely improved the wifi connections & speeds throughout my house in comparison with the crap supplied by my provider.

£200 for a router, you’d expect it to be good though

You are paying for the WiFi performance; all of the other features can be had on their lower priced ranges. If you can live with 750Mbit WiFi, the VR200 costs ~£65 (if you shop around).

I bought my VR200 via Amazon Germany, as the £100 UK prices are a rip off; it has been rock solid in the nearly two years of ownership; giving me the full 80Mbps BT will allow (my line stats suggest I could have 100Mbps).

Still prefer the separate modem and router combo, any crashes on the router which wont effect the line leading to dreaded DLM! Had TP Link in the past and the thing would crash every few days, my line dropped from 22mb down to 8. Great id you want a simple plug and play set up, if your willing to maybe sacrefice line speeds over time.

Any router/modem recommendations

As far as I'm aware, these days it'd have to be disconnecting very, very frequently to cause speeds to drop. I went through a couple of weeks recently where I was often restarting/disconnecting my BT HomeHub 5 multiple times a day to try to diagnose a fault (which eventually turned out to be at the exchange), the sync speeds didn't drop at all.

The one thing I would do if paying a fairly substantial amount for a new modem/router is ensure it supports G.fast.

Have you not been with Sky, I left them because of their over sensitive line management, we had some electrical work done that lasted 2 days where the electric was switched off probably 3 times. The following week we saw a major drop, and had to go through the hassle finding someone in support who firstly new what dlm was and then reseting it.

any particular good modem to get for vdsl? I've been thinking myself to set it up this way for a while. We had bthomehub3 which had the seperate modem and to be honest that was good, prob the best decent kit Bt used to do until it went to hub 4 then hub 5 which were awful. My hub5 got replaced 3 times in the space of 6 months and even the openreach engineers advised me not to use them as everyone were having problems. Unfortunately I dont have the bthub 3 kit anymore as I sold it off without thinking, silly me.

Ive got a netgear d6400 now and it has been a lot better but very rarely it does have its fits and will start disconnecting. Other than that its an okay router, wifi strength isnt great.

Can't decide what to get

I would go for like I said above the bar openreach modem which is pretty cheap (£10-£20) and easily unlocked to any isp, just make sure you get the Huawei version as it has the better broadcom chipset in it. The other option if the draytek vigor 130, alot more expensive but no messing about with unlocking, costs about £80.

My set up consists of the bt openreach modem hg612 (unlocked) and router Asus RT-AC88u running merlin firmware. Modem was about £10 on ebay and the router set me back about £90, also means I can lay a lan cable through house to maximise wireless in centre of house instead of the router having to be sat near phone socket.

Bought this a couple of months ago for 150. Recommended and love the tether app for controlling kids WiFi by device. Great two box into one solution for me on plusnet.

Probably worth checking out warehouse deals if they've still got 20% off.
Got a tri band router for 96...

Have one of these - fantastic router. Far better wifi coverage and speed around our house

Worth the upgrade from an old Asus RT-N66U merely for the router?

I've no real issues with the Asus just a smidge better wifi coverage would be good.

Bought to use with TALK TALK Adsl2 broadband. Constant disconnections and many hours spent reading through different forums - only to find out that other people experience the same problem which is .... infamous “Please configure your DNS manually” message. TP LINK was not helpful either and was providing me with solutions which I already tried before and did not work at all. In the end they expected me to become their beta tester who would spend time and efforts trying out different settings. I eventually sent it back to Amazon as I was not able to get it to work properly. Just have a look how many of these are being offered by Amazon in USED section. I would assume that other people experience similar issues.

800Mbps at 2.4 is near on impossible. No one makes kit that will ever reach that. It's all theoretical maximum speak. Worth remembering if you only have 2.4 kit and want this router just for that.
