Cable connection

Go to solution

I have a wireless router connected to the BT socket on the wall by a cable which is approx 6 metres log. I keep it coiled up as the distance between the router and socket is only about 500mm! Can I get a shorter cable of shorten the current one?

Yes.

If you have FTTP with an ONT then you need a Cat5e or better RJ45 ethernet cable. If you have a copper based service with a master socket then an RJ11 cable.

If that is the case, it must plug into the DSL port on the BT Home Hub, and then connect to your phone socket. Is that correct?

Slightly trickier as the Fritzbox uses an RJ45 for the DSL connection. So you need  an RJ45 to RJ11 cable. Might be tricky to find one short enough.

@Inkedwood 

That is not a BT Home Hub, are you a BT Broadband customer, if not, why are you posting on this forum?
