Settings for 3rd party router

Hi All,

 

I just received the wifi hub router for a new faster fibre contract.

I found there is no way to set a wifi schedule, for example to switch off/on all the wifi at nigth or on specific hours.

I have my old VF router, which was doing that, so I want to try to use my old VF router with Talktalk fibre.

I saw on some discussions that we can set a 3rd party router to use it with TalkTalk, but I cannot find what the router settings must be.

Can someone guide me? Which settings must be changed and to what?

 

Thanks

Hi gregf27

 

Apologies for the delay.

 

This help page should help Set up a non-TalkTalk router

 

Thanks

If you are going to connect another device on it's own, you need a VDSL compatible combined modem/router.

 

Even if you do have one, the required settings on the TT website are missing, staff are aware and hopefully it'll be fixed soon.

 

The TT router cannot be set to modem only mode, however you can connect the second router as an access point and probably be able to still set a WiFi schedule in that device's settings.
