I am new to the forum but I have been reading a lot. Great help on many threads but I cannot find the answer to my questions so here goes.
Also I am partially sighted do am dictating this. Therefore please forgive sny errors. I do have it read back to me but there may still be errors.
Ok. We have a new house. Built 2010 by Wimpey. We have a master socket in the hall and six extensions all over the house These were installed by Wimpey with chrome faceplates. One is in the living room next to the skybox, one is in the family room next to the other skybox, one is in the office, and three are in the bedrooms (with one of the bedrooms also having the alarm wired into the bottom of the socket which texts phones if it goes off).
Because of my vision problems I work from home in an office on the first floor. I have a Netgear D6 300 router and Anaya desk IP phone. We also run a ready Naz duo and Sonos. All of these plug directly into the Rueter.
A) we are having talk talk complete fibre being installed in September. I have told me as part of the package they will move the master sockets to the office. However can you not run the talk talk super router off of an extension socket if it's modern wiring?
B) I was not sure if there was a limit on the number of phone extensions you could use with a fibre faceplate. Obviously we have six extensions at the moment and when the master socket is moved I would of course like to keep all of them. Do you know if this is possible?
C) where the extension socket is in the office which will hopefully become a master socket will I still be able to use the backup phone line in the office. We have DACT phones throughout the house but in case of power cuts are used this old-fashioned wired phone in the office to make and receive calls. I think I have read on a if you have an extension socket change to a master socket he can no longer use a telephone is that correct?
D) I do not suppose anybody has used my router as opposed to the talk talk super router and could suggest which one is best. The Wi-Fi range on my netgear is next to useless.
Thank you in advance for your help I really appreciate you taking the time to read my post and provide help and answers.
