What can I expect from the wireless connection of this router?
Four external dual-band antennas transmit both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies throughout your home or office.

is this suitable for talktalk network

Asked by: mike
It's suitable for use on ANY network. However this is not an ADSL modem router, if you are intending to replace an existing ADSL modem router then this would not be suitable.
