Fibre broadband query


[link to this post]
 
Basically I have my broadband modem router set up downstairs. But in my bedroom I have a working telephone socket, what things would I need to do to have some sort of router (or whatever it's called) running from my bedroom also?

Many thanks in advance.

You can only have one modem/router connected to the phoneline

You may be able to move the whole thing to your bedroom, but, you may lose some speed and stability of your connection.

You could use poweline adaptors with a wireless access point at the end in your bedroom. Some powelines actually have the WAP built into one of the plugs so you don't need an additional bit of kit to plug into them.

If it's an extension to the downstairs phone then, as suggested, either move everything upstairs or use a powerline adaptor.

If it's a separate phone line (ie a different phone number) then you can get a second internet connection on it, with a different ISP if you want. With all the associated installation and monthly charges.

I prefer it downstairs any tbh. I just wondered if it could be used an access point of sorts

No....well maybe....if you do not use the telephone extension and if it is twisted 2 pair you could connect rj45 sockets either end http://www.amazon.co.uk/Single-Socket-Network-FacePl... and then connect up an old router/wireless access point.
