I have fibre 150 installed and have the standard talktalk WiFi router which is connected to the BT fibre 150 modem
The WiFi in the house is not great and does drop, we have multiple phones, tablets, Sonos speakers etc
I know ASUS make specific gfast(fibre 150) specific combined adsl modem/WiFi hubs but can anyone suggest others?
I’ve read lots of reviews and they seems sporadic and non really stand out.l and it seems a minefield.
Besides having better WiFi I like the idea of taking the BT gfast modem
out of the equation and plugging straight into the new modem aswell.

@valleyboy1975 Rather than searching in a very narrow and largely unproven market perhaps you could look at simply trying to improve your wifi performance? Which TalkTalk router do you have? Both Hub models are quite capable devices with a bit of fine tuning. Or if your property poses specific issues there are other ways of improving coverage.

Make sure you search specifically for G.Fast compatible modem/routers, which are few and far between at the moment. Many of those listed as simply fibre/VDSL will be like the TalkTalk model and require an external modem.

@valleyboy1975 it really comes down to your budget and the functionality you want. I suggest you look at some of the online review sites, eg:
These tend to restrict themselves to consumer products. In addition there are more business focused products from companies like Billion and Draytek. Finally Fritzbox which is used by the ISP Zen is worth a look.
