I was wondering if someone can answer a question about the cabling needed between the master socket and the inifinity modem.
I recently had my house refloored. As part of the work I had an RJ11 terminated cable run from my filtered faceplate under the skirting boards to my ADSL modem on the other side of the room. Probably about 3m cable length away.
Now, I'd liek inifinity, but Id want the modem in the same place as my ADSL modem, plus there isnt a plug socket near the master socket.
So is this doable? Can I put the infinity modem where my ADSL modem is currently, and just connect the RJ11 to it, going back to presumably a new faceplate on the master socket?
Or am I going to have to talk to the wife about running new cables on top of our lovely new skirting boards (including around a door...)
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Hmm. Probably not - its a basic RJ11 modem cable from Maplin (I think).
I found this image on another forum:
Which is what im after. But instead of the faceplate -> modem cable (the grey one in that pic) being just coiled up, it would run to the modem, a few metres away (which would then be plugged into a homeplug and power supply).
So, superficially, that pic seems to suggest that what im after is doable?
It worked fine for ADSL *shrug*
And I dont necessarily *want* an unsightly new cable tacked to my wall. Hence my question.
