How to configure an ASUS WiFi 6/6E/7 router for the Vodafone Full Fiber 900 package.

2: Seeker
2: Seeker
Today my Vodafone Full Fibre 900 broadband was activated, however, Vodafone may be misleading customers because you are sending an old gen THG3000 WiFi 5 router that uses a 5GHz WiFi connection with a maximum speed of 866Mbps, while the real speed of this device at a distance of 2m from the WiFi card in my PC is only 520Mbps (it works at 56% of the broadband speed).
What's worse, Vodafone's customer service does not understand the speed limits of their WiFi router and say that the connection will reach full speed after 24-48 hours - this is not true if you use a THG3000 router and a WiFi connection.

I am using Full Fibre 900 - this is my package.
  • Min. guaranteed: 455Mbps
  • Min./Max. download: 910Mbps
  • Min./Max. upload: 105Mbps


To get the full broadband speed you need to use a LAN cable connected between Vodafone's THG3000 router and 1Gbps network card on your PC/Mac.
To get the full speed of 910Mbps or more via WiFi, you must purchase a WiFi 6/6E or 7 (6GHz) router. Below you will find instructions on how to configure ASUS routers. I am using ASUS RT-AXE7800 Tri-band WiFi 6E router.

SPEEDTEST.NET (2m from Vodafone's THG3000 router @ 5GHz (866Mbps)

SPEEDTEST.NET (2m from ASUS RT-AXE7800 router @ 6GHz (2400Mbps)


As you can see, 5 minutes after activating my broadband (I didn't have to wait 48 hours) I got full speed when connected to 6GHz WiFi ASUS router. I get even higher speeds than those included in my package 935Mbps instead of 910Mbps.

Vodafone packages (prices as of February 12, 2024).



If you decide to connect via 5GHz WiFi from Vodafone's THG3000 router, the maximum speed will be aprox. 520Mbps, or less if the devices are more than 2m away from the router. If your broadband speed is 500Mbps or less, there is no point in replacing your router with a better one.


If you have chosen the Full Fiber 900 package and want full speed via WiFi, you should purchase a WiFi 6/6E/7 (6GHz) router.

How to configure an ASUS router for the Vodafone Full Fiber 900 package.

Step by step...


I hope this guide will be helpful.

I am very pleased with the speed of the Vodafone Full Fiber 900 package, however Vodafone should provide a newer 6GHz WiFi router for this package.

Your pictures haven't been moderated yet, but hopefully they will ne useful to others.

Vodafone do supply a Wi-Fi 6e router with the (more expensive) Pro II service, but not everybody wants to use an ISP supplied router, so I think it's good that there is a (cheaper) alternative.

One thing you've missed is the VLAN - 911 for Cityfibre, disabled for Openreach, and 101 for Kingston Communications. These are entered under LAN>IPTV by selecting "Manual Setting" in the top box then adding the VLAN in the internet box.

Thanks, I am using Openreach so no additional setting.

The reason your sync speed never beat 866Mbps (sync) oh the THG3000 is probably because that is the max of your 2x2 80MHz channel width WiFi5(AC) device.  If you had a different device the VF router may have been able to go to higher speeds.  The fastest device I have connected to my Asus GT-AX6000 manages 2400Mbps(sync) 160MHz WiFi6(ax), the other AX devices we have sync at just 1200Mbps, and the older AC devices still just at 866Mbps.
Other than a big party over xmas we aren't normally stressing the network with multiple high-demand clients!

I used my new BE200 card to test both routers. THG3000 is a joke, already packed and I will never use it again.

@FirstEver One problem with the BE200 is that it's being reported to not work with AMD chipsets.

What does this have to do with the topic?
Actually, I wanted to mount BE200 on a platform with Ryzen 7 4700U - I'll write later if it worked.

@FirstEver What does it have to do? If another person reading this thread tried to repeat your test using the same WiFi card but on an AMD chipset motherboard they would have wasted time and money.

There are relatively few WiFi 6 bits of kit let alone WiFi 7 which was only ratified a few days ago.
