Do you have you a question about the Asus Wireless AC5300 Tri-Band Gigabit Router?

Q: We have Sky Fibre coming in through the telephone line currently running at around 78Mbps. Is this WiFi router suitable for use with the Sky Fibre router?

Post Answer
Q: Can I replace the BT home hub 5 with this router - can i just plug it into infinity fibre via BT new socket.
Answer by Dan on 25th January 2016
You would need to keep the BT hub in modem mode and connect this router to it. -Danlevan

Answer by Website User on 12th May 2018
The BT HomeHub 5 doesn't have a modem-only mode. I find it a nightmare, I can either suffer having the ASUS as a dumb switch and lose 50% of the features but keep BT IPTV and the internet channels or switch to a different modem, enable the ASUS features and lose the BT internet channels.
