I went live with Zen fibre on Friday afternoon and all appears well so far.
At the moment my fibre modem is in the hall where I have hooked my Billion 7800DXL into.
I'm tempted to re-locate both to my computer room.
I went to Maplin and bought this cable for the socket to the modem.
Do you think I would see a drop in speed/reliability using something like this?
I also bought this:
At present I'm torn in running the modem cable through the cupboard into the computer room but if it is likely to cause issues or speed drops, Then I may just keep the modem where it is and then run the network cable through the cupboard and into the computer room to connect the billion.
This leads me onto my next question, Should I hang fire before switching off the modem if I do move it seeing as it was only installed on Friday. Is there a training period where I should avoid power offs etc or if I did switch it off, Would I see a line profile drop? I'm more used to the BE setup I had where it wouldn't change profiles.
