In wall mini wireless router


[link to this post]
 
Hi everyone,

I want to setup a new home network and to do this with no wires visible.

I wanted to get the following:

2014-Newest-Home-and-Hotel-Use-Wall-Mount-Mini-Wireless-Router-3G-Wirelss-AP-Wireless

I want to put this in the wall next to the main telephone line and connect directly to the DSL splitter.

Although it looks like this only has a network connection on the back?

Is it possible to connect a network cable to a DSL splitter? I think not?

Trying to avoid seeing any wires being visible, "wireless", no DSL splitter hanging from the front of the phone socket with a wire leading to a router.

Any ideas?

cheers
Giles

Not 100% sure that I fully get the question but if you were to get a ADSLNation filtered faceplate then they have filtered connections on the back so you could take the filtered connection directly out the back of the phone socket into the wall.

It's a router, not a modem - it says in the description it doesn't have any modem function.
You need to connect it to the ethernet output from a modem or a router.

Hi,

Thanks for your comments.

Ok so I need a modem/ADSL router similar to the device shown in my first post.

This modem/ADSL router would live in the wall with all of the required connections hidden inside the wall. I will connect power directly from the power circuit and telephone socket. Both connections will be internal.

I will then connect this to my existing home network as the default gateway.

Any ideas on a different product or a way to modify the setup to use this one?

Thanks

The device you posted is NOT an adsl modem.

Tell us which country and provider and better hardware advice may be possible

I would have serious concerns about that unit.

There is a connection for a 230v supply and NO visible circuit protection which is essential for your safety and that of others. Devices such as that should never be wired direct to a power circuit - that is why we have plugs and sockets.

How thanks for you comments, currently in Spain, but can hardware from UK, or anywhere including
USA.

Currently have no provider, but generally they all provide a plug in desktop ADSL modem/router.

I have an Apple Airport extreme, which I planned to use for the home network and use a wall enclosed ADSL modem for the access.

Never seen a wall enclosed modem and given tendency for them to get warm probably not a good idea.

Low power wifi units are around but that is it
