Apologies for the most basic of questions here. I have searched the site for my router and also tried google to no avail before asking this.
I've had fibre since Xmas eve and the wifi on it is terrible, dropping from 40 to 11 from just over 5m. I have bought myself a Tp-link ac1200 c50 and was using this as an access point for the time being but ideally I want to rid myself of the sky router as I have been having issues the last few days.
I went to the dd wrt site and I can't find my router from their search function but I can find it on their supported devices list with a possible version, but I can't find this on google either.
So long story short, can I use this router? found here

Re: Tp-link 1200
Have you taken a look at the User Manual for the router?
Most manufacturers now publish them on-line. What you need to find is the ability to set Opt.#61 .

Have a look here - https://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/archer-c50
You are aware, even if you flash it, it will require a Modem to connect to Fibre.
