No details on the amount of lan ports at the back or even an image. Either way still hot for an ac router which you could use as an wifi access point.

Would this be much better than the new talk talk super router you get with fibre?
This deal got my attention where the OP seems to have flashed the Asus firmware on this router.
So I can just plug the cable coming from my phone line box thingy that currently goes into my TalkTalk router into this and it'll work?

Not on its own, you still need a modem.

Currently I use it on my own, so I must already have a modem built into the talk talk router?

Is there any recommended modems I should be getting to go with this?
I believe the interface is not in English. Ok if you know your way around these things.

that will depend on your service provider but if you have adsl/vdsl, i would just get an all in one modem router, makes it much easier to manage otherwise i'd recommend a true PPOE modem/bridge like a draytek vigor 130 to avoid horrible things like double nat'ing etc.
any ideas on the quality of engineering on these things - will it overheat or reboot and is the software likely to work and be tested?

None of those are guaranteed. It's surprising how small the board is!

The stock firmware's based on Openwrt.
I'm no router wizz but I need a router to use in Spain, on which I can log in to a VPN via openvpn. I baiscly want to be able to use Netflix, Now TV, iPlayer etc in Spain. Can this router install ddwrt ot tomato, or will the stock firmware serve my purpose?

What talk talk provides is modem + router. If you want to use this, you should be able to configure talk talk device just to work as a modem and this can then be your wireless router.
need more antennas and ports
it's chinese firmware? can anyone confirm?
