@Gibbo1471 

Are you referring to this thread when you say “as previously stated”?

No sorry as people have mentioned the router is poor at wifi signal strength

I'm not on Now, so have no experience of the Now router. Personally. when I was considering Now (didn't join as they dropped the inclusive calls), I had intended to use a different router if it turned out to be as bad as it apparently is.

Either get a second hand Sky SR203 or one of the  ASUS or TP-Link VDSL routers as they have Sky_MER as one of the connection options.

Splitting the bands is never going to improve a poor Wi-Fi signal, just give you 2 poor Wi-Fi signals with different SSID's
