VR2800 Wifi Router Review

VR2800 Wifi Router Review

As with many wireless routers, the VR2800 isn't much to look at; just a fairly nondescript black slab with four wifi antennae sticking up at the back, four Gigabit LAN ports and a VDSL2/ADSL2+ compatible socket, plus a couple of USB 3 port on the side.

There's a line of fairly bright status LEDs ranged along the centre of the router's body but these can be disabled id required. That's handy if you want to site the router in a bedroom.

Over 5GHz it’s capable of delivering link speeds up to 2,167Mbits/sec thanks to 4x4 stream MIMO.

Internet Repair Please

Internet Repair Please!

One of the most common issues we repair with computers is internet issues. The WIFI isn’t going on your laptop or other computer and it turns out the internet isn’t connected somehow. Often the reason the internet isn’t working is because the router is too old and is failing. What makes this tricky to figure out is that most or all of the lights are still on the router so it LOOKS like the internet is working.
