    Ok so thought I'd update this thread.

    Got the Asus RT-AC88 and it's the dog's danglies. Managed to get rid of the 8 port switch and the range seems much better than the Meraki so could get rid of 3 of the 4 AP's I had around the house. Swapped the old HH5 I was using for the AP to the Meraki. Asus worked out of the box. Plugged it in, typed in the new SSID and password and away it went. Super pleased with it all so money well spent.

    Only thing left to do is pick up a cheap Openreach modem to replace the last HH5 I'm using as a modem and its all nice and clean.

    Just got to flash it so I can use IPVanish which is a bit long winded so I'll do that later.

    Thanks for the update. I'm tempted by one of those Asus routers but it is an ugly piece of kit and the only place it could sensibly go is in our front hall.

    It is a big box let alone the size of the 4 antenna so definitely needs an out of sight solution. There will be all the cabling in the back if you are needing the 8 ports as well.

    Much better solutions out there if you don't need the 8 ports.
