New router installed still dropping out

Help I am not at all technical so floundering!! I have super fibre broadband via open reach cabinet. I recently had issues with internet dropping out and was recommended to install new router. I received and installed Plusnet hub one, connected to telephone line via open reach modem.  I gave this 2 weeks to settle. It is not as bad but frequently drops when using FaceTime/Skype and now Sky will not work properly, saying no internet connection but when I check on settings shows all connected.

Help any advice on the best way forward would be greatly appreciated

Remove the Openreach modem, it is not needed with the Hub1

Thank you I have disconnected the modem. Contacted Plusnet today, there was an issue with the new router, reprogrammed and all now seems ok .
