I’m looking to use my own router, as opposed to the stock unit.
My router (ASUS RT-AC86U) is reporting that “your ISPs DHCP does not function properly”. I assume that the MAC address table at the DSLAM is full and it is not allowing a new address to bind?
Can someone clear it down for me please?
(If you check any logs, the stock router is currently plugged in so it may appear to be working OK.)

Thanks for the reply @Gondola
I tried the router factory reset but no immediate change.
I swapped out the modem for an HG612 and, after a while, the traffic flowed - it just required a bit of patience.

Factory reset the Asus, connect its WAN to LAN1 on the Openreach modem and use the setup wizard on the Asus. Use the same settings as the TalkTalk supplied Hub. For Username and Password just enter your telephone firstname.lastname@example.org and anything as a password. The authentication is automatic.
