I have read that the vDSL modem has to plugged into the master socket and that two power sockets are needed nearby. Is this true?
If so there might be a snag. My master socket is in a tiny front hall which is basically an enclosed porch stuck on the outside of the house. The nearest power point is 5 metres away, the router and computers are 25 metres away; any additional wiring would involve drilling through walls etc.
Might it be cheaper to have the master socket moved from the front of the house round to the computer room? The external phone line is underground.
Also will either of my existing routers, Netgear DG834PN and Speedtouch 546i V6, work with the FTTC modem?
