I am a UK resident who has a fibre connection (not to the house) with BT Openreach and my ISP is NowTV (subsidiary to SKY) and i currently use the horrible NOWTV hub 1 router to connect to the www.
I have just signed up with NordVPN and i am now looking for a new broadband router that i can use with this new service and my current ISP.
My network has 1 desktop (wired), several games consoles (wired), 2 smart tv's (wired), Synology NAS (wired), several mobiles (wireless), 2 tablets(wireless), 3 laptops (wireless) and a couple of other devices, google home (wireless) printer (wired) with 3 unmanaged switches and an old BT Hub to provide additional wireless coverage.
We use Netfilx UK (would also like to use USA via VPN), NOWTV, Amazon Prime, google home, spotify.
I need a router/modem that can cope with this, i am not that bothered about the number of connections 4 LAN would be good but i could cope with just 2.
I have seen on Amazon.co.uk several mini routers and full blown routers, but i don't know if they will work with NowTV's "unique" ISP methods.
Budget....around £100 if that is possible?
Not sure if i would also need an old BT Open Reach modem to work with these, i know these are available on ebay very cheaply.
Any advice or guidance would be appreciated
thanks in advance
