Hi I have TalkTalk fiber broadband and my internet isn't working.

I'm using my phone to send this message. My dad said it could be a problem caused by a recent storm. But I think it might be the router I have.

This is the router I currently have:

Notice the low reviews? I get kicked out of online gaming sessions a lot because of this router.

I am thinking of buying a new router and modem for my TalkTalk fiber broadband. These are what I'm going to buy:

On the images for the router I'm going to buy it says it will work with TalkTalk fiber broadband but it needs a modem.



So are these products the correct router and modem to buy to work with my TalkTalk fiber broadband and have a good online gaming experience? Please give me your opinions, any advice you give me will be helpful. Thanks

You would need a modem. My understanding is that if you have a gateway device (basically the network device that will be allowed on your Internet Provider's network), and it has a spare port where you should plug in your Phone and Ethernet, you will should be good.

To be safe, you may want to call up our ISP to see if that router will work. You may also just request a straight modem device from them if they won't charge you for it.

I have cable Internet and I have a regular modem, and connected the Ethernet connection to the custom router I bought (it was also a TP Link Archer series I would recommend I have a C7).
