I use my pc's upstairs and my master socket is downstairs. At the moment I have a phone extention cord that goes upstairs to my router and then ethernet cables to my 3 computers and ps3.
I'm wondering that because the engineer will come out to install the modem/router to the Master socket, how will I get the signal upstairs? I was thinking of using a laptop downstairs for him to set it up to the right speed etc. But when he's gone whats the BT setup like? Is it a modem AND a router or is it combined? I've seen the BT Hub, I'm assuming its a modem/router in one? So if this is the case then I'd ideally prefer to take the phone extention cord out of the equation as I'm most likely losing speed by using it. But what would be my best way to set it up?
I'm not a fan of wireless so does anyone else have ethernet cables going upstairs? or do they use power plugs? or maybe even a ethernet cable going upstairs to a network switch?
Thanks for any advice.
