Use Plusnet router as a modem, but use my own router for wifi?

Hi - sorry I am getting very confused about this - I have the fibre product with the Plusnet Hub One and I am unimpressed with the range & reliability of the router.

 

I have a T-Link router which I have used in the past - can I hook the two together? The router is a TP-LINK TL-WR940N

 

Are there any instructions on how I should setup the routers? thanks!

Welcome to the forums.

All the settings are documented at https://www.plus.net/help/broadband/broadband-connection-settings/

As the TPLink is a router, you will need a modem to connect to the phone line then connect the TPLink router to that. Which type of modem depends upon whether you are on ADSL or FTTC

Alternatively if you want an all in one box to replace the Plusnet Hub One and are on FTTC, this site has a good decision about suitable devices http://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php/topic,14436.0.html
