New to this forum - grateful for any advice.
Our BT master socket is in an extension on one side of the house with a thick wall between it and the rest of the house. Hence wireless signal is not great throughout the house. I'm thinking of positioning the router about 6 metres away and would need about 10m of cable to achieve this. I am aware that standard telephone cable is not recommended for this and having experimented with it saw the broadband signal drop considerably. Also I do NOT need a phone socket where the router is to be repositioned
So I'm thinking of adding an adsl faceplate to the master socket and then using a 10m high quality adsl cable. Question is - as we are 3 miles from the exchange and don't have great broadband is this going to be good enough or would it be better to splash out and get BT to move the master socket and extensions (at a cost of about £200)
Also, by using the faceplate am I right in thinking I don't need a filter
Or does anyone have a better idea?
