New installation queries


[link to this post]
 
Looking at joining plusnet fibre extra and phone package. Just moved into a flat, how many modem/ routers are needed? Is it 2? Or have Plusnet changed this? Not got many sockets in the living room near the master socket

Cheers in advance

Get a collection of good quality of extension leads and sockets. So you only need one socket to support the string of sockets.

Currently they supply a modem and a router, so 2 sockets required, But if you are willing to spend a bit of dosh you could buy your own all in one router, this may also be an improvement over the plusnet router if require higher standard router

I've got a trailing lead from a two-way adapter that occasionally has a vacuum cleaner plugged in as well, round the small bedroom feeding a 4-way extension, feeding another. Supporting phone base station, printer, shredder, modem, router, laptop, and a spare that sometimes has a second laptop plugged in.

Been that way for years.

My study has 24 sockets running off a single socket. I don't think I'm that unusual these days.
