Hope someone can help me... I have a new build house and the OpenReach modem is by the front door. I don't want to use the BT home hub for 2 reasons... There is nowhere to put it, and I already use an Apple Airport Extreme and a Time Capsule to provide my home network. This works well as it gives good coverage through the house as well as a continuous backup of my computer.
Instead of linking to the BT Home hub, I had the idea of linking LAN1 of the OpenReach modem to one of the AV600s, then picking up the other end of it in the kitchen on the Airport Extreme. Then configuring the Airport Extreme to connect to internet. Then extending the network using the Time capsule.
The question is, will the signal from LAN1 of the openreach modem get to the Airport Extreme and will it work?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
Thanks again... it did work, however, it really slowed down the speed... Good to know it works, but I might have to try another solution.... wish I had the builders put some ethernet cabling in when the house was being built now.
