This will no doubt seem a very basic question. I am soon moving house and need to set up the system. Openreach has installed a master socket in the living room. I plan to site the telephone near the front door, and to have the broadband hub and desktop computer upstairs.
In the house I am leaving:
- the master socket is in the entrance hall near to where the telephone is connected
- the computer / hub (SmartHub6) are upstairs, connected to the master socket by a long flex.
In both cases, will I need to connect the devices by a long flex, or are there means of establishing wireless connection? The BT house-move helpdesk said that a 'dongle' could be fitted to the desktop - does that seem correct, and if so is there any particular type to buy outright rather than take out a periodic contract ?
