Evening everyone.

I have just bought the above router.the Internet was always dropping with the talktalk router so thought I would upgrade. Complete newb to this.i have gone to set up but there is no plug for the Internet cable on the back of the router.do I need a modem or do I need to get an adsl filter. Could be a really stupid question.anyway any help would be great.
Cheers.

You kind find out everything about your router here on the ASUS site...

Since this is a router only, you need a modem.

I use a TP-Link AC router and it works great, but I did not have good luck with the TP-Link modem I tried.

 

I simply turned the ISP-provided router/modem into a modem only by turning off router functionality and wireless.

Some are routers and modems, some routers only, some modems only.

Cheers for that.
I went out and bought a asus dslac55u.
I have followed all the steps but cannot connect to the Internet. I get a message saying cannot connect to server.
So frustrating. 😡

I would recommend plugging in the old router/modem. logging in to the router to get to the GUI, and taking screenshots of all the settings (use the built-in Windows Snipping Tool).

 

Use those as your setup guide for the new router/modem.
