Can I buy a data extension kit for fibre modem post install


[link to this post]
 
I've just had fibre installed with the modem next to the master socket.

My wife would like the modem moved to another room,so I was wondering if the extension cable kits are available to the public (and where from) so I could plug it in myself or will I have to get the Openreach engineer back to install one?

HOw far does it need to be moved?

There are three of choices -

1. get a decent Cat5e (2pair)cable with RJ11 terminations and just use that to replace the existing cable; OR

2. if the run is long/complex/goes through walls/under floor then install an RJ11 or RJ45 socket next to the existing phone socket and one where the modem will be an connect Cat5e between those and a short patch lead at each end.

3. as with 2, but connect to the two IDC terminals on the rear of the VDSL faceplate and run it to a remote RJ11/RJ45 socket.

Just moving about 20feet into the next room - running it behind the skirting board /under door plate
I'm not familiar with cables and the like so would need one ready made.
I didn't know if they were standard connectors

Thank you.

Would this be OK then (it doesn't mention CAT5 but I can't seem to find one that mentions CAT5 and RJ11 together)

NO ...

Belkin cables are a rip-off ...

Give me a few minutes and I will find one and provide a link.

I think that the OPs wife might object to the colour!

The same supplier makes: These but it is 4 pair Cat6 which is large diameter.

And also This, which is quoted as twisted pair, and fairly small diameter. An email to the supplier about this and cable type might confirm the cable type.

Edit to add:
The second cable is NOT Cat5e but standard twisted pair telephone cable - whilst it would be reasonably OK, Cat5e would be a better option.

Thanks UKhardy, I'll go with that if it works for you
She won't see the colour most of the way as it's behind skirtings - will have to paint the other bit I guess
