5.0 out of 5 stars Replacing a Vodafone hub. Genuine review
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 August 2021
Update, a few months on and it had been so nice to have fast trouble free WiFi. All the years of buffering on our Amazon fire stick and smart TV, disappeared. The Sky box and computers taking forever to download files, not any more. Strong signal throughout our home and I have not had to use the mesh options. I was a bit weary as the cost of this hub was not cheap but it was worth every single penny and more.

Purchased this to replace a Vodafone hub. The Vodafone hub is/was a couple of years old and I believe (was told by Vodafone) that they have a newer version out that is much better than the one we had. I just did not wish to sign up for another 24 month contract to get it.

We were experiencing frequent drop outs and randomly different laptops and devices would be kicked off the network and it was not possible to reconnect them until after the hub had been rebooted. Also we experienced constant buffering and pixilation issue when streaming (on Samsung Smart TV, Amazon fire stick and various tablets and even laptops).

I looked at loads of combined modem routers and separate modem and router combos, in the end I called TP link and Asus tech support, the agent at Asus I spoke to was really helpful and went through the various options. As I did not wish to have extenders all over the house, the Asus AX82U was the best option. If not purchasing this product on Amazon from this page be careful as Asus do an identical AX82U that is not DLS, so it is just a stand alone router, no modem. You need the one that states modem router or DSL router.

Only had it running for a day and a half but it is so, so, so, so much better than the Vodafone hub. Devices that were poor signal are now medium to high signal, even the TV with the fire stick on it, which is the furthest from the router, is now reading 3 bars instead of one. Speed is also greatly improved, in fact my daughter noticed on her Samsung S21 when connecting to the wifi it now says connection very fast instead of normal. No more buffering, no drop outs so far and downloads are much better instead of 3 to 5 mbps for steam, Origin, windows or Nvidia updates, we are now getting over 10 to 12mbps. The Amazon firestick (the 4K version) is transformed, it is just so quick now, no more waiting for 25 to 50 seconds for it to load content, it just pops up instantly.

I have mine up and working, it did take a little while, as delivered on Saturday and Asus tech support are not open on weekends. As I could not find any info or guides on setting for Vodafone fibre superfast two broadband set ups I have provided a picture with the setting to get the modem connected to Vodafone.

Plug into a laptop with a ethernet cable type in to your browser bar. Or you can use the Asus app.

When you start the setup, once you have inputted the username and password you want for your AX82U, you will go to a page that asks for your country location ISP provider (of course Vodafone are one of the few IPS's not in the drop down) select other/unknown. This will take you to a page asking you for a VLAN number. I found somewhere a brief thread that mentioned using the code 101 so this is what I used. Then it will take you to the wireless setting page, to name and set up wifi passwords. Then it is a page with links to computer wireless software updates, so your desktop or laptop are able to match the best performance of the Asus AX82U.

From here you should go to the main router page, of which I have provided a picture. You will have to type in your Vodafone user name and password (the user name you will have to get from Vodafone, which you can do via the app chat, it will start with DLS). I have arrowed the two setting that you will need to make sure are selected for the modem to handshake with Vodafones servers. As I could not find anything to help online, I had to trial and error.

If it does not work you may have to update the software, one way if the modem will not connect, if it still works use your old hub a a temp modem. With your Vodafone hub powered up and connected to the internet, plug an ethernet cable into one of the yellow ports/sockets on the back of the Vodafone modem and the other end into the blue WAN port/socket on the Asus AX82U. Power up the Asus AX82U and it should show that you have an internet connection via the secondary WAN. Then just go to the firmware version on the top of the page (it is in my picture) and click on the link next to firmware version, it will take you to the page, which is pretty self explanatory once you are on it.

I hope this helps and avoid the hours of trial and error I had, although I was questioning if I had the right VLAN number and then if the username and password were right or if I had to do anything else. As not a bit of Vodafone kit they are not able to help and you will likely be told as I was that they do not use VLAN so they are not able to provide a VLAN (virtual local area network) number. In honesty it may not even matter, I just kept typing it in with the various different setting in the drop down menus, until one combo worked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome DSL router. Brilliant coverage. Terrible manual.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 April 2021
I had been waiting for this to hit the UK since last year to swap out my EE hub which could not handle two Xbox X’s, CCTV with 8x 4K cameras (hard wired but accessible via app for playback, control etc) Sky Tv in 4 rooms, 15 google home speakers and a plethora of mobile devices (I was with Sky broadband but annoyed by them limiting my speed to around 56mb/s causing many issues with drops and lag so I moved to EE and now get around 73mb/s). I live in a large 5 bed property and the EE hub was ok but still had occasional issues when a lot of streaming devices were connected as it doesn’t have the QOS function. I have the DSL-AX82U meshed used the AiMesh with two ASUS RT-AX92U routers and connected both of these to it using ethernet backhaul to free up the WiFi as much as possible. As you can see in the photos I have max speed and bandwidth throughout my house and I have WiFi signal within a 50m radius of it. The adaptive QOS appears to work well as does the manual QOS priority for when on Teams or Zoom calls for work purposes. They are expensive routers but their quality and functionality outweighs the stress and frustration of line drops and lag; and continual apologies when on important calls. The setup manual lets it down as there is little information on correct initial setup and I had to do my own research to get this right. The interface isn’t for the faint hearted either as it doesn’t give basic help or information for the many user selective options; and assumes everyone is already an expert. It isn’t wall mountable which is a shame.
