I'm finally joining the wonderful world of fibre optic broadband as of Tuesday. At present I have a netgear N Router for my current broadband and I have heard that the router TalkTalk provide is pretty lame.
Is it prudent to say I'll be able to use my current router over the one they supply?
FTTC or FTTP is an engineer installed product and will include a VDSL2 capable router to which you can connect your own router or computer. You will need to connect a device that supports PPPoE to use it. This is usually a standard 'broadband router' or 'cable modem' router which has a WAN port. If you currently have an ADSL router with a built in ADSL modem, this will NOT work with the FTTC service and you will need to get a new router. If you are only using one computer on the connection, you should be able to connect the BT provided router directly to your computer and create a PPPoE network connection to get online.
