I've ordered Infinity 2 and a bit confused about how it's setup and this will determine whether I'll need to get extra power sockets installed.
I have new flat that's just been built. The master socket is in the hall cupboard where the fuse box is. There are no power sockets inside this cupboard. The master socket was installed recently by a BT engineer when he installed the line. I believe the line coming into the flat is a copper line. The master feeds 2 additonal phone sockets in the lounge and master bedroom (I'm told by the BT engineer that they're connected with CAT5 cables). At the moment I can move the HUB4 to which ever room and have a wired connection.
Will this still be the case with Infinity 2? I have been told by some people this is so but have also been told it's not.
I have been told that the master socket will need a new face plate to connect the OpenReach Modem and the HUB5 connects to the modem. That's where my dilema is. The master socket is in a cupboard and I do not want any cable routing through the flat. The cupboard does not have any power sockets so if the modem and HUB5 go in there to avoid extra cables, I will need to have extra power sockets installed to power the modem and HUB5 then use Homeplugs broadband extenders to provide broadband to the lounge and bedroom (for a wired connection, online gaming and work pc).
It would be great to clear this up so I can decide whether I need those power sockets or not.
"Optionally, one of the extensions may be converted to the master so Infinity will only work at that socket."
Is this an option that's included as standard or would I have to pay extra for it?
