Hi, I've been told by the Open Reach engineer that my router needs replacing. Does anyone know how to contact TalkTalk to arrange this? I've spent most of the morning on the TalkTalk website but there seems to be no way of contacting anyone, not even web chat.

Hi Debbie, Thank you for coming back to me. As it turns out, I haven't needed to because we've had a series of engineers turn up and the one today confirmed the router is at fault. Since their visit, I have been advised that a new router is on its way.
Thanks again for your help.

I'm sorry for the delay.
Have you made contact with our Live Chat team since your last post? If you haven't then please let me know and I will order you a replacement router.

Thank you for the suggestions and screenshots. I changed from Firefox to Opera and lo, the chat line button appeared. They are closed, but at least I know how to reach them when they open.

Another link to live chat on this page here: Our update on Coronavirus - TalkTalk Help & Support which also includes the current phone and chat support opening hours.
Unfortunately they're just about closed now tonight.
You should see something like this when chat is available:
If you are seeing "Chat busy" (as below) you may need to wait a short while or keep refreshing the page until you get "Chat now"
If you are not seeing the Chat now or Chat busy buttons make sure any ad/pop-up blocking in your browser is disabled or try a different browser.

You can use the phone to speak to an agent. And Live chat is available, I have checked. If you prefer you can wait until the support team are back online next Monday I am sure they can help.

Thank you for your reply ferguson. I have tried the number and it is automated. The end result was a line test that said the line had no problems. I looked at the link for the web chat and it just goes to a page that says they are short staffed and with no option, that I can see, to actually access web chat. I think it will probably be easier if I just order a new router from the shop.
