The connection speed is missing from those hub3 figures.

 

G992.1 is ADSL max, up to 8Mb, which is compatible with all routers. Perhaps you have the settings wrong on the TP link one.

 

There is some information on this page, which should also apply to the 8961ND.

You can ignore the DNS settings and leave them at default, if you do not want to use OpenDNS.

It should work fine, a number of people here are using the 8960N without problems.

Was the actual broadband (DSL) dropping out, or did it just keep losing authentication?

 

Did you make sure that it was set to PPPoA and not PPPoE?
