Slow sync after moving extension socket

Go to solution

IMG_1707.PNGFor the 2 years I've lived in this house my connection has synced at the full 79mb of Infinity 2 and the HH5 has always been plugged into an extension socket.

 

I wanted to move the extension socket somewhere else so picked up some CW1308 cable and moved it.

 

When I fired up the HH5 it synced at just 31mb and the noise margin is at 6.5 which tells me that's the best it could get.

 

What did I do wrong? I am running the CW1308 very close to electrical cable, could this be interfering? Would cat5e be a better choice for the extension?

Dodgy crimp, poor cable or something interfering.

Thanks Webby

 

i suspect it's interference from the mains electrical cable it's running alongside

 

Is there a more suitable extension cable I could use instead?

Could you not leave it where it was and use wireless/homeplugs or a mixture?
