        WiFi signal reaches part of the house that our ISP supplied router could not. Very fast and easy set up. The lights are very bright at night but there is a switch on the rear to turn them off. The styling is not to my taste but this is a great product and I would buy again.
        For a fibre connection, it requires the BT Openreach modem or third-party modem between the router and the wall socket. I know that some routers have this built (like my ISP supplied one)

        Returns and refunds

        Whether an item you’ve bought is faulty or damaged, or you’ve changed your mind, it’s easy to get a refund.

        Items you haven’t opened
        Within 21 days of receiving an item you paid for online, on the phone, or in store you can return it for a full refund – provided your purchase is still in its original and unopened packaging. This promise is in addition to your statutory rights.
