Ok guys the Sky Fibre Unlimited has now gone live and everything seems to have been quite smooth,lost Bt connection then proceeded to unbox the new Sky hub which connected within a few minutes.
Changed the wi/fi password and some other bits and bobs but thats about it.
Now i have some questions to ask regarding my set up at present and have i done it correctly given that this new Sky Hub is suppose to have some built in home plug device inside so I'm led to believe.
Well I'm using at present Solwise Home plugs around the house and i have this Sky Hub power plugged into a extension socket at the moment,i don't know if i put it direct to a wall socket if this would have been beneficial ,my home plugs run all my gaming consoles and a few other devices,and given that these are powered through extension leads and i use a ethernet switch from the solwise home plug to power the Tv,xbox One and Playstation 4,when i say power i mean give them the broadband connection.
This is the first stage of the Sky Install,this time next week the Sky Q silver equipment arrives and he might tell me i haven't set it up correctly,but for now all seems ok and running.
Since there so called new more advanced so they say new Sky hub only comes with 2 ethernet ports,my question is does this impact on connection when using a ethernet switch,i also noticed that when logging in the first time to the Sky Site when powering on the Sky Hub it said i was missing using the Microfilters and detected i hadn't used what they had supplied,now i have the more modern faceplates and was told by the guy that fitted them recently i didn't need to use them as they were built into the faceplate ,well thats what the engineer who fitted my most recent one in the office said…….Ex Bt engineer that is ?
I also don't have one on the phone in the hall……..Am i right or am i wrong ?
Anybody with suggestions as to other methods please let me know
