There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This took me some time to decide, I looked to spend no more than £150. Finally deliberating between the AX20 (AX1800) and the AX50 (AX3000), after looking at the ASUS RT-AX82U too. I read through tech reviews, 'top 20 routers of 2021' and the reviews here.
My goal, was to improve the poor coverage of the Virgin Media Hub 3 - a common theme throughout many Wi-Fi router reviews.
Finally I decided on this AX20 (AX1800) due to:-
1. Having 400Mbps of internet and only max. 4 streaming devices at any time, AX1800 still delivers 450Mbps theoretically to each (1.8Gbps/4)
2. Filtering Amazon reviews by Virgin and seeing predominantly AX1800 purchases and feedback
3. Price - couldn't justify the extra £30 for the extra 600Mbps of bandwidth, which is unlikely to change speed at device
Happy days, that was the decision made - phew!
Before it arrived, I went through the house and every room recording all speeds whilst two streaming devices going. Downstairs near the Virgin Hub was always reliable 300+Mbps. Kitchen varied and signal dropped off significantly (lost it completely 3/7 mornings a week). No signal near front door and very low (4-20Mbps down/3-8Mbps Up, 15ms jitter) in upstairs bedrooms above kitchen and front door area.
Boy oh boy was I pleasantly surprised by the purchase!
New speed in upstairs bedrooms of around 52Mbps down and 35Mbps Up and only 2ms jitter. Similar story for main bedroom, which would again suffer from 1-2 bars on wifi; now a strong signal - couple of results below:-
Main Bedroom (room above but ~12m to left of router)
from: 59.4Mbps down, 20.8Mbps up, 14ms ping, 71ms jitter
to: 95.5Mbps down, 36.5Mbps up, 11ms ping, 3ms jitter
Front Door Area (farthest point from router)
from: 72Mbps down, 27.5Mbps up, 10ms ping, 12ms jitter
to: 91.4Mbps down, 36.4Mbps up, 11ms ping, 4ms jitter
Also, to point out that the front door, although holding during testing, only had 1 bar if lucky of WiFi, often cutting out. Now it has at least 2 and has not cut out once.
We are only on day 3, but no crashes yet either - if anything adverse happens I will update this, but for now one happy camper!
Having read some of the reviews for TP-Link Cable WiFi Router and looking at how other people solved poor VM WiFi problems I decided to purchase for installation our loft space with a view to making the WiFi signal in our home more robust. One the router arrived and was out of the box I switched the Super Hub into Modem mode, ran a CAT5 cable from the Modem port up into the loft space, plugged it into the TP-Link Router and turned on. For first time use I used a wired connection with the laptop to log into the TP-Link Admin page and within a couple of clicks of a mouse the router had found the cable model and the connection was live. A few more clicks later and I had configured the WiFi as we would want it and all of our devices found the new SSID quickly. I then reviewed the basic security setting and made a few simple changes to make sure the router was as secure as I needed to be and, after a quick reboot, we were ready to go. The total installation time was no more than fifteen minutes and that included putting a couple of screws into a joist to mount the router for best signal strength.
The router has been in place for about a month now and so far it has been excellent. Unlike the previous Super Hub there has been no drop out or no need to reboot (albeit I believe there is a setting where you can do this on a daily basis at a set time) and the connection has been very stable. We run 2 PC's, 1 Laptop, 2 FireTV's, 3 Mobile Phones and a CCTV system that can be viewed live and the router is dealing with all of this in it's stride. It not unusual for both Fire TV's to be streaming at the same time without an issue and our work laptop can be quite heavy on data when using a VPN connection and, again, the router has been trouble-free. There are lots of other features of the product such as Guest WiFi, Bridges, DMZ's etc. which are all over and above what we really need but am pleased the features could be used should our requirements change.
All in all, for the price we paid and the issues we were having with a Super Hub, this is an excellent piece of kit for a home WiFi setup. It was quick and simple to set up, provided a good level of security for our devices and so far has been faultless.

How it works: You plug an Ethernet cable from an existing router - your main router - into this access point. You then connect to this access point.
Setting up the access point in two easy steps:
1) Connect to this network/access pont, which will be called TPLink***.
2) Choose automatic setup, though for more advanced users there is the option to go through manual setup. Here you can choose the access point name and the password.
Personally, I find this access point highly reliable as it has been connected and running for many months. It provides a strong WiFi connection and I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to extend their network
