Technicolor TG582n to TG588v - should I change router?

I'm still stuck with my original Plusnet TG582n - which has never been better than "OK" especially in terms of wi-fi signal strength. I've been given a Technicolor TG588v by a friend.

Beofre I go to all the trouble of swopping them out, is the 588v any better - and will it work with Plusnet? ( I'm OK with logging in to a router and manually setting things up )

Hi there, as long as the router isn’t locked to a specific provider there’s no reason I can see that it shouldn’t work. It may be worth giving it a go, remembering to configure the router using the details found here: https://www.plus.net/help/broadband/broadband-connection-settings/

Let us know how it goes.

Did you swap in the end?

 

Anyone know if the TG588 can be configured to support NAT loopback, which works fine on my TG582N?

Dismal failure 🙄 but happy ending.

Replacement router was password locked and the factory reset button had been disabled...

BUT I inherited a Netgear router from my girlfriend ( she’s moved to fibre ) and installed that. Seems much more stable and has longer range than the TG582.
