      Suggestions for replacement router please.

      It looks like my Billion 7800N is nearing the end of it's life as I have to reset it every other day or so.

      I am after suggestions for a replacement.
      I want it to be able to cope with ipv6, not that it is available at my exchange yet.
      I am not bothered if it is just a router to connect to my openreach modem or an all in one unit.

      Could I have reasons for your suggestion also please.

      Asus+Merlin all day long, full feature set coupled with great price. Currently using RT-AC3200 and it's great with strong WIFI.

      I am going to get this router as it does seem very good.

      Is it easy to set up for use with sky fibre?

      I will flash Merlin firmware.
