      Best routers to replace the Sky Q router modem

      While the Sky Q router modem has been stable for me I am looking to replace it with something that gives me more features and better Wifi coverage.

      I do not want to run 2 boxes with a modem and a separate router, preferring just the 1 box like how the current Sky Q is connected.

      Does anyone have any recommendations for something that is stable, reliable and offers guest WiFi, AP isolation, USB printer support and possibly VPN endpoint ?

      Re: Best routers to replace the Sky Q router modem

      all in ones devices are tricky due to needing to support sky's option 61 requirements. Just a thought not that I have used one but I wonder if the Asus DSL-AC88U supports sky fibre option 61..? the dsl-ac68u does so maybe the 88u would as well?
      Personally I would stick with 2 device setup but that's just me and purely due to sky's wan setup.
