I need a new unit for the house since the last draytek may have got soaked lol.

Now if I was after just a wap I would have gone for a Ubiquiti unit but I'm not sure if they do one with them modem and router built in? 

I could just buy another Draytek which I really like but that seems like a waste of money for a single user home.

look at the TP-link stuff, I use mainly Draytek (or Cisco if I need that) for £67 inc Vat they do a VDSL compatible unit, the Draytek 2860 series I tend to use are great (with 4G fallback if you want all that) but for home, Zyxel/TP-link take some beating, IMHO....

TP Link for home, and they WILL honour the three year warranty with an email and reciept.

It's everything, not everythink!

i got some d-link dir615, found in charity shop, installed dd-wrt on it, works nicely.  if you getting adsl modem from your isp set it into "modem mode" or equivalent, let your own router do the routing.

The thing about TP link is don't think they use a classic processor setup, so no open-WRT ect, they seem to be FPGA based!

I'm running Open-WRT on a TP-Link AP...  It was pretty useless with the stock firmware but works really well with Open-WRT.

Ok, I may be wrong, we were benching a TP router recently, no way is that running any kind of embedded Linux, it was virtually wire-speed, either way, not-bad kit on the bang/£ list...

We have a bunch of" rel="nofollow - these to go out on jobs with our desks for remote applications, and for a cheap access point they rock.

When I had a problem with choosing a router, friends advised me to try Cisco routers as they were their users. Cisco Routing provides intent-based networking for WAN, LAN, and cloud. Network routers include advanced analytics, application optimization, auto provisioning, and integrated security to provide a complete, proven solution. I found out more about Cisco at and checked the terms that some of them offer users. I have been using it for several weeks now and am quite happy with my choice.

Wow and 5 years later I'm still running openwrt, archer C7 looks like a good choice now bang for buck.
