Does anyone know the name/type of cable that connects from BT's infinity openreach modem from the socket on the wall?
The reason I'm asking is that I'm trying to relocate the thing away from behind the HD tv that BT's engineer installed it.
BatBoy has answered about the cable.
I'm a bit concerned as to why you need to move the modem, as its not something most people ever go near, but more importantly how far you wish to move it.
A longer cable than the standard one, of the same spec, is not recommended at all. That's why the Home Wiring Solution
is available for your ISP to order pre-installation. That is higher quality, (apparently CAT 5), and normally fitted in lengths up to 30m.
Too late for that now, but there is nothing to stop you or someone on your behalf installing such a cable.
If the modem could stay where it is, but the Home Hiub position is an issue, the cable between the two is standard ethernet, and you can simply replace that with any length of that you wish. Maximum length is 100m.
There is no need for the two to be close together.
