Can someone recommend a VDSL/Modem router where you can turn the WiFi OFF at night?
At the moment we have a BT Homehub 5, but when we turn the box off at night (to disable wifi) it eventually messes up the line speed management (downgrades us to 20meg broadband)
Any help would be appreciated!

I use the VR900, which is VDSL2 and also wi-fi (2.4 and 5 Ghz). I recommend you use this model.
However you will also need to buy a timer (it’s very cheap) and configure it to turn off at a specific time, say 11 pm, and turn on at another moment you select, say 7 am.
This is the best advice I can give. Here’s how the timer works:
You simply plug the VR900 into the timer and once configured you don’t need to worry about it again.
