Here's our simple guide to help you set up or reinstall your TalkTalk Super Router.
If you've got a Wi-Fi Hub please see our guide for setting up your W-Fi Hub.
Your master socket is the main phone socket in your home - it’s usually larger than a normal phone socket and often has a horizontal line in the middle. There are two types of master socket:
Standard master sockets have one port on the front, which means you need a microfilter to connect your phone or router. You'll also need to use microfilters in every other socket you're using in your home.
Pre-filtered master sockets have two ports on the front, which means your line is already split between your phone and broadband connection. You can plug your phone and router straight into a pre-filtered master socket without using any microfilters.
The way you set your router up depends on which master socket you have. Choose yours from the options below.
To use a wired connection, simply plug the Ethernet cable into your device. Then plug the other end into any of the yellow Ethernet ports on the back of your Super Router.
The lights on the front of your Super Router will change colour depending on the status of your connection.
