I have a sky+ box currently connected to the master socket in the attic, and the sky+ box is also connected to some 12-way channel sky splitter (basically a big black box with loads of wires coming out of it) and then my router is plugged into the nearest extension socket possible. Currently I get 5 mb/s but if I connected it to the master socket I could get 7 mb/s , so my question . How can I connect my sky+ box and netgear router to the same master socket, and what do I need? Also I don't have that sky splitter thing :L, do I need it?
Do you have an ethernet cable coming from your skybox? or it the telephone cable connection you mean?
Not certain what the sky splitter thing is
That splits the signal coming from the dish.
Well , my skybox doesn't have anywhere to plug a ethernet cable into :l
Your sky box doesn't need a phone line master socket connection, an extension is fine, purely for account purposes only.
Your sky box gets its data stream from your dish and distribution block as Dave has implied.
I think only the Sky HD boxes have an ethernet connection
I think we get our sky channels through the phone line. Also, the sky box is connected with loads of these wires:
To a 12 way sky distribution amplifier which I don't think I should be unplugging it from :L
