cheap Plusnet fibre compatible routers?

Looks like I'm going to need to get an alternative router to the Hub One which I can't get to work on LAN with my consoles. I don't need wifi (existing mesh so router wifi will be disabled) so am simply after as simple a router as possible with 4 LAN ports which can be configured to work with Plusnet Fibre. Any suggestions? What features should I be looking for as some of the cheap routers in stores don't seem to have DSL line ports?

you say you can't get it to work with the consoles, what issue do you have?

My first recommendation would be a BT Smarthub 6 but I guess the jury might be out whether they have the same problem.

Any third party manufacturer of combined ADSL/VDSL modem/routers should do the job.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that all you need is a router, you need the modem bit as well.

Yup, that's why it is quite challenging to find a compatible one online. Smarthub may well be the way to go. Quite why my last Plusnet router worked (but is now recycled) and why the new one doesn't is a mystery.
