Hi, ok, powerlines? So, if I had the main hub in the house and then powerlines to direct the signal to the shed? Would that give me two socketys in the shed for TV and PC? And, is that not essentially a wif fi' set up? This wouldn't be ideal as the shed needs to have the most durable internet connection.
Depending on the actual powerline device you may get 2 sockets, but you can always add a simple unmanaged switch as a poster mentioned before.
The simple cable to the shed may be the answer. although chnelling it cleanly may be an issue, whats the situation with length? ie - when will my signal start to degrade due to cable length?
100 metres

You still have the telephone extension problem.


Well, I could run a extension from the phone socket in the lounge I suppose. Or get BT to add one when first fitting the line.

Hi guys,well, FINALLY nearing to getting into my house. Just want to pick your brains a little if possible.

After the tips on here, I asked for a pipe to go underground between the house and the shed. As per this pic, you can see that they have done that for me. However, the guy is telling me that that pipe will aso be used to carry the mains electric spur into the shed. So, I #m assuming I'll need to isolate the comms cable sfrom the mains elextric spur so how can I best protect those cables that will be alongside it in the same pipe? (Broadband cable, TV ariel cable and phone cable)

*In the pic, the shed base is on the left and the pipe is under the barrow, you can see it starting on the right, with the rope in it.

Any help, much appreciated.

Keep the pipe for your data cabling and ask them to run a Steel Wire Armoured cable parallel to it for the power feed...

As you can see, its concreted in. Nothing can run parallel to it now. Only IN it.

OK...

Running both in the same duct will *probably* be fine...

You could always use a pre-terminated fibre alongside the power cable, assuming you can get the connectors through.

You could use Shielded CAT 5/6 Cables if you are worried about noise.

Why not just use wifi, you mentioned it is a small house and the shed is only 3 metres away. Before you go buying home plugs etc just see if your wifi stretches to the shed and then buy a usb wifi adapter to plug in the back of your pc.

Wi fi? Nah. I need a solid connection as I will be working from the shed. Dont mind wif fi in the house, but not the shed. Also, I need Ariel cables and telephone cable to come into the shed as well. Looks like they will all have to go through that one pipe. Maybe I'll try and get a smaller pipe to put them in and thread that through

What's the big problem with wifi latency? It's tiny between computer and router. Possibly relevant to some gaming but not to "work".

You should not, according to wiring regs, run a TWE mains cable with the phone and/or ethernet alongside each other .
But if the mains cable is armoured with an earthed sheath then you will , I believe, not break the wiring regs.
Armoured mains cable and normal data cables is an easier option than trying to increase the insulation of the data cables.
Of course if you are doing all this yourself and will not be getting any certificates then you may not be too concerned ......
