hi i am currently using a tplink archer c1500 router that is a few years old from my previous tpg account. i used the telstra modem 3 for 6 months before comming back to tpg. The telstra modem was a wifi 6 and gave good internet coverage though the whole house and did not have any dead zones can someone recommend a new modem/router that will work in the whole house with no extenders and preferably a single network name for the 2g & 5g network. house is approx 320m2 single level.

Hi @andyiwancz02 . I couldn't find any info on Archer C1500. There is an Archer AX10 (AX1500) and Archer C1200 (AC1200).

If the Telstra router is unlocked, it might be possible to use it with TPG, since it performed well. 

There is no special requirement for FTTP connection.

For other connections, the TPG VOIP phone service only works with TPG-supplied router.

And, the Telstra router has to support VLAN ID setting, which could be a problem.

But, you could change to a "BYO router data only" plan which does not use VLAN ID.
