HI Debbie,


Sorry to bother you again - just to confirm, a replacement router is it a SAGECOM model?


Many thanks

Hi mzukis


If you could return it within two weeks after receiving the new one that would be great.

HI Debbie,


This is great. Many thanks. What is the ETA for returning the old router? I just want to make sure i have enough time to trial the replacement to make sure it is performing as good as the current one i have.

HI mzukis


There is no charge for this router. I have also ordered you a pre paid returns bag for your old router.






Message 11 of 17

Hi Debbie,


This is super!, but:


1. Is this chargeable

2. What should i do with the current router if replacement router resolves the issue?


Many thanks

No, you won't be able to forward that & some other ports on the DG8041W.


I have asked one of TalkTalk's support to pick your thread up and exchange it for a different model.
