Recently I've had issues with a new network setup at home in which I've received a lot of useful feedback on my thread in this sub forum http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/multiuser.html
However I'm at the point where I want to resolve things the easiest way I can and avoid as much hassle as possible. So basically at present I have a Plusnet home hub on Fibre in the bedroom and a Netgear Managed switch in the lounge. The reason the PN HH is in the Bedroom is that when BT were last here they discovered that the telephone socket in the bedroom which is of a generic BT type socket (ie type fitted by the builders) was in fact the Master socket. The BT engineer replaced it with a BT NTE5 but left the lounge generic "BT socket" as it was.
I believe all current xDSL techologies are affected by cable length but now I am on VDSL as opposed to ADSL I wondered if it was likely (I know no one has a crystal ball) that moving the PN HH to the extension "BT generic socket" in the lounge which I'm guessing adds another 10 metres approx to the run would likely impede my VDSL connection badly?
My Connection to the exchange is very stable and my PN HH syncs at:- Downstream: 79.9 Mbps, Upstream: 19.98 Mbps.
The last time I noted the wiring between the Master and slave sockets it appeared to be the BT solid single core type cable.
If i did move the router to the extension socket in the lounge, Id probably leave my DECT phone base station connected via filter into the master socket where it resides now.
So my question is, does this sound silly contemplating adding albeit another 10metres of cable length to my FTTC connection or is it certainly worth trying?
