      Re: Known Working Third Party Routers With Sky Fibre

      Hi All, I've read through this and the various other threads but as some of the information is quite out of date - could anyone give me a recommendation for a current budget third party modem/router that will work with Sky Fibre? I'm seeing several recommendations for units in the 120-200 range but I was hoping to spend about half this!

      My requirements are:
      1. I need to be able to disable SIP ALG (got a work SIP phone which is the main reason the ER115 doesn't work for me)
      2. Would prefer a single unit but don't mind splitting modem and router if cheaper (HG612 + ?)
      3. Don't need wifi - already have AP
      4. Have young kids so don't currently have the appetite / time to go down the custom firmware route!

      I see that the Linksys E1200 plus Openreach modem might be one possibility - but is this only with a custom firmware on the Linksys?

      Thanks for any advice!

      I have had a TP-Link Archer VR2800 for about 9 months now and am very pleased with it. It is a single unit. Don't know about your phone requirement. I don't much use WiFi as I prefer a home plug network. It is available in the region of 170/175.

      Thumbs up for the TP Link Archer routers. I have the VR1900 and it worked out of the box, just chose Sky (MER) as my ISP.

      In the end I just disabled the wifi on the Sky router and for 3 Linksys Velop nodes for a mesh system at home, works well.

      Hi can you help me please?
      I want to completely replace a Sky Q Hub.

      Will this work - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wireless-Co...-1-spons&psc=1

      The AC1200 at 62? You said it would, however would that support Sky Fibre and be future proof for speeds over 76mb?

      Thanks

      *deleted* due to now seeing your device was a modem/router.I was referring to router only devices and not all in ones.

      Re: Known Working Third Party Routers With Sky Fibre

      Hi all,

      So a few questions... I'm looking at either the TP-Link AC1200 or AC1600 on Amazon as direct replacements to the Sky hub.

      Is either one fine for Sky Fibre, also meaning they're future proof for speeds above 76mb?

      Thanks
