After years of low speeds we finally received notification that FTTC is indeed active on our exchange and cabinets (Willowcroft Derby) and successfully placed the order today! We are predicted to get the full whack up and down so this will be quite a change for us (currently 1.5 megs).
Which router do you recommnend please? Preferably with gigabit capability and ideally not much more than £100 although we can push up a bit if needed.
After a bad experience with reduced speeds after an intolerant ADSL 2+ "upgrade" we reconfigured the house wiring so that the current router is right next to the NTE5 (?) faceplate and from there we use 500mbps LAN plugs to network to the office upstairs. We get 250mbps + from this arrangement so pretty good. Am I correct in thinking that the new router will go next to a modem supplied by BT and that these are then connected please? What cabling for that and does it come via BT or possibly with the new router please? Presumably our LAN plug arrangement is not affected?
Sorry for all the questions! Just want it spot on for when the BT guy arrives.
up the down escalator..........
