I've ordered one of Xilo's 40mbps FTTC products and the BT engineer will be calling on 7th Aug to install. We have lived in this house for nearly 20 years and we have never had the need to call a BT engineer.
The line enters my house in the lounge where there is a standard socket but the master socket (the one with the capacitor) has always been fitted to an extension in the kitchen. I'm not sure if previous owner or BT fitted the extension. Last year when I was replacing the kitchen, I replaced the aging master socket with a NTE5 socket.
Is it OK to have the master socket on an extension and will the BT engineer be happy to fit the modem to it? I would prefer to keep the modem in the kitchen.
I'm planning to buy an Asus RT-N56U wireless router. Will this be compatable with my FTTC service? My PC currently has a Belkin 54g USB wireless adapter. Will I need to upgrade this to get the higher speeds.
So many questions..... thanks in advance.
