Mastersocket& modem inside: How do I provide a wired connection for my CCTV in the shed?

Hello,

I just need a little guidance for my wiring.

 

I currently have the NTE5c mastersocket and modem in the house and I basically need internet for my CCTV box which is in the shed outside.

I thought about having an ethernet cable directly from my modem running outside and into the CCTV box but is there an alternative way where I can wire something from the existing master socket and install an extension socket in the shed where I can just run an ethernet cable from the socket(in the shed) and into the CCTV box? 

In order to have internet does the cat5e cable have to be plugged into the modem? Apologies if it's a stupid question...

Hi @Prophet55  

If you have a mains electricity in your shed then you could consider powerline adapters. Just one example:

By modem I presume you mean router (hub). If the camera doesn't have wifi you either need to run Cat 5E ethernet or use powerline adaptors with an Ethernet interface to connect hub and camera. Yes,the camera needs tobe connected to a LAN port on the hub.

I only have an extension lead into the shed so I am probably right assuming these do not work as they would not be on the same circuit?

As long as it is on the same consumer unit it should be ok.

Connected to same fuse box/consumer unit.  All have to be on same circuit
