As thechief said, reset the router to factory defaults, and enter your details again.

Re: Asus RT N66U weird disconnects

Very odd that it's only YouTube that disconnects. I assume your connecting to the router by wireless? If so, do you connect with on the 5GHz or the 2.4GHz frequency? Try changing from which ever you’re using to the other and see if that makes a difference. You could also try putting a manual channel...

Re: Asus RT N66U weird disconnects

Hi, welcome to the forum. Have you done the basics? Reset the router to factory settings, and re enter your settings manually. Are you on the latest firmware? Also when you install the firmware its best practice to reset the router after the upgrade and again manually entering your settings. Firmwar...

Re: Brightbox 2 Router 2.4 Ghz not broadcasting

Hi, If the wireless doesn't, start up after a reeboot, try a factory reset. If it still doesnt work, then yes I would say something has burnt out inside.

Re: ASUS AC68U dsl Help

Indeed the DSL-AC68U is a little over kill if you are just going to use it for every day stuff.

Are you on ADSL or VDSL?

Re: Best way forward

Hi, welcome to the forum,

Personally I would use the Netgear. I have never had very good experience with BT Hubs.

Try both see which one works best for you. I would try one for a week, then the other and see if one behaves better than the other.

Re: TP-Link

BT Fibre modems are ready avalable on ebay. So the OP has the choice of getting a combined unit, which there are very few, or getting a modem and a router of his choice.
But if he hasn't gone a master socket like the one I posted then he may be stuck with what he's got.

Re: TP-Link

OK, not being familiar with Sky, it looks like that is an ADSL router, that can connect to a fibre modem.

Do you have a modem that that hub connects to?

Re: TP-Link

You need a broadband router, this explains a little: http://www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/default_ShopGroup.asp?ShopGroupID=163 Take your pick which router you want. If your Sky router doesn't have a seperate modem, then you will need to get one of those as well. There are a few Modem Routers out there l...
