I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of good alternative modem routers to the ones supplied by talktalk, I was using a tp-link ac2800 moden router as wasn't getting the best performance out of the wifi-hub but has broken and have had to go back to the wifi-hub and my WiFi performance isn't as good and weirdly getting a lower sync speed with it too, so looking at alternative modem routers, i have fibre 65?

@ferguson is correct you will get a range of suggestions from people based on their own experience, environment, and bias. Of course your environment and requirements may well be different to theirs so what is an excellent solution for them may not be as suitable for you. Therefore you need to be clear what you want and look at your environment, eg factors such as: size of house; thickness of walls; presence of RSJs; WiFi interference from neighbours; etc, and tailor your solution around it, and of course your budget.

There are lots of discussions around this already. You will probably get a few responses praising the merits of various individual personal choices. Any Openreach compatible device will do the job.
Before spending any money though, which Hub are you using? There are some tips you can look at to improve wireless performance.

My son uses a Asus DSL-AC68U
Just make sure you buy a Modem/router.
Otherwise the latest modem/routers supplied by TalkTalk do a great job.
You will not get support on your own supplied modem / router
