Hi I would like to know how to connect a second router to my Wi-Fi hub and use the second router as the main router and use the WiFi hub as a modem could someone explain to us how to do this if possible.

No modern TalkTalk router supports modem mode. That said it can still act as the initial router with the secondary router on the same subnet, providing it is bridge mode. Another alternative is to use the 2nd router in a double NAT scenario, with both acting as routers, but the configuration is not for the faint-hearted.
Without knowing the exact details of which WiFi hub and the make/model of the second router, I cannot be more precise.
It is the Asus that must be in bridge mode, if the WiFi hub was bridged, you never get out on to the internet.
Leave the hub mainly at its default configuration. Then follow this procedure on the Asus:-
How do I set my IP address to 192.168.1.2 with a 255.255.255.0 subnet mask there not option to do this manually and to put it in bridge mode I’m not having any luck setting this router up earlier on I had working as thought but done a speed test I had the shock of my life I was getting download 2meg and upload 0 that’s definitely not right tell you truth I ain’t got a clue on how to set this up I need help.
As far as your Asus is concerned I cannot offer support on that, as I do not have one.
I did say before that no TalkTalk router supports modem mode. There is a simpler way, for £25 you can get the TT WiFi extender:-
I’ve got it going but I’ve noticed that my internet speed has dropped a hell of a lot I’ve done a speed test it was showing something ridiculous 15 download and 2 upload that is definitely I don’t think the router is compatible with android I’m having a nightmare trying to get this to work
I’ve logging to my Asus setup wizard I’ve tried to Change the IP address to 192.168.1.2 but it will not let us this message comes up on the computer screen saying ( The LAN IP of RT-AC85P is 192.168.1.2 if you can’t get back setting page later, please renew IP Configuration of your computer )
what does this mean I need to know would know what this means it’s got a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark.
BY the sounds of that, you have already set it to 192.168.1.2. I would not expect the router's IP address to be part of any setup wizard, but in its advanced configuration somewhere.
