Yes, you may use your own router if it meets Wireless Standards IEEE 802.11ac or IEEE 802.11ax requirements.

Just keep in mind, Lumos Total Home Wi-Fi uses equipment that was chosen to deliver the best performance for your home network and Lumos Fiber Internet connection and using a 3rd party device may limit our ability to support your Wi-Fi experience.
