TP-LINK Archer D9 AC1900 - replacement for HH5

Go to solution

Hi all,

 

So afte getting so utterly fed up with poor WiFi signal andnumerous daily drop outs, I decided to replace my Infinity 2, HH5 for a 3rd party device. 

 

I did some reading and as far as I know, I bought the right this - the TP-LINK Archer D9 AC1900.

 

My HH5 has no OR box and connects directly to my wall socket via a RJ11 socket/cable. I itinitall bought the C9 as it was listed in a well kow computer shop as being for BT Infinity. However, this has a RJ45 socket.

 

So, my question is - have I got the right router/modem?

And, is there anything special I need to know regarding set up?

 

I plugged it all in earlier but it failed to connect propoerly and the ADSL light flashed constantly.

 

I'm a newby to all this so any advice/help is hugely appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Steve

You have bought an ADSL modem/router.

 

AC1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router Archer D9

  

You need a VDSL modem/router or an Openreach modem which you would need to connect the TP-Link through.

No. The C9 is only a router not a modem/router.

If you go to the TP-Link web page and go to DSLmodem & routers and filter by VDSL/ADSL you will be given a selection of suitable VDSL/Modem/routers.

So, it looks like the Archer VR900 is the one I need...?
