I've signed up to My Republic, install is this Friday. A new router arrived a while ago, and I already have a Fibre capable router (Innbox V51).

Before I open up the My Republic one, I thought I would check if it's fine to use an existing one, and find out which Router is the better (if there is much difference). The Router they supplied was a TP Link Archer C2.

Any people here used different routers for My Republic Fibre?

The C2 is cheap (~$100), but it does handle 200Mbps, even over WiFi.

I believe your router is more expensive than the C2, why don't you give it a try first?

As far as I know, MyRepublic is just DHCP, no VLAN, so setting it up on any equipment should be straightforward.

I have the Linksys WRT1900AC as it was the best/most expensive choice they offered when I signed up 29 April.  By the time I was connected they where no longer offering this router.
No wiring in home and this router was the best WIFI option, so works for me.  In hind sight I could have purchased a suitable router myself for a better price.  

Works fine, with a reset now every two weeks or so. Typical speed test results Ookla 105 Mb/s download, 21 Mb/s upload, Ping 16ms (Blenheim to Auckland server).
