We are interested in transferring to FTTC and its available in our area.
We are with BT for phone but ISA is Gofast and have ADSL
Just trying to get head around what I need in the house.
At the mo the incoming BT is located downstairs and the desktop pc
Would prefer to have cable between all bits if I could...but...
So its a toss up between both the vdsl modem provided by BT and the router to be provided by me being located together downstairs where BT enters the house then I'd need to cable to the pc,
or both together upstairs near the pc,
or the vdsl located downstairs and the wireless router located adjacent to pc...would be glad of any advice ref this?.
If I wanted both located near the pc upstairs would the BT engineer run a
cable from down to up at the time of installation of the new faceplate at the master socket (the total run would be less than 30metres) and would
this cost an arm and a leg?
If I didn't push for cable what do you think of use of Powerline Ethernet equipment...I'm unfamiliar with this..would it be feasable?
And finally ref the provision of a router..have been advised to obtain a PPPoE router with an Ethernet WAN (Wide Area Network) port..any suggestions ref a decent model (the existing ADSL modem is a Netgear with which we have been happy)
