The role of a broadband router in the modern home cannot be overestimated. This simple-looking piece of kit is tasked with providing Internet access to a growing number of devices all day everyday, and with our lives having become increasingly connected, a router failure doesn't bear thinking about.

It has become one of the most crucial pieces of hardware in our day-to-day activities, and manufacturers have always been keen to push newer models promising greater speeds and support for the latest Wi-Fi standards. Router prices today can range from £15 for a basic unit to over £1,000 for a mesh kit promising whole-home coverage, so there's clearly no shortage of choice.

What we want to know is which router you've opted for, your reasons why, and most importantly, whether or not your chosen model has lived up to its billing in terms of coverage, speed and reliability.

Synology Router, the features are great, been easy to set up and manage. Better than the ones the ISPs provide.
Still on a Virgin Superhub 3 here. Only live in a flat and it's good enough for my use and the missus
Fritz!Box 3490 but probably looking to change at some point because I can't decide if it's the router or the access point which seems to ‘disconnect’ the wifi connection even though it's saying it's connected on the AP and on the Fritz!Box. Hard to diagnose when the logs say everything is fine lol.
Two x Netgear Nighthawks. One as a master where the fibre comes in & the second as a slave hardwired at the other end of the house, with a WiFi booster in between. We have meter thick walls to get through & this has proved to be the best solution. Oh & the WiFi turns off on the main router & extender during the night so our kids can't be on the net all night and they don't have the password for the second WiFi router, thats just for me & the Mrs.
