Re: FTTP home networking options? CAT5e? CAT6? which router?

Why are you set on not doing the job properly? Plenty of comments about the right way and you want to use inferior, inappropriate products to lash up a solution.

Re: FTTP home networking options? CAT5e? CAT6? which router?

I wasn't wanting to spend a great deal, the links people have provided have been for cables which cost a minmum of £50, not including all the other equipment,
Plus i dont know how to do half the stuff people have mentioned, i was just wanting to run a cable from where my router is, outside for maybe 15m then to my pc/games room.
I wasn't wanting to overcomplicated things.
I emailed FS cables and they said any order is a minimum of £50. and there cables aren' suitable for running indoors due to them being flammable

It is not that the wires are "flammable" but the potential fumes they can give off. BT and others specify a maximum length of external cables inside a house. Similarly external Cat5e/6 has a recommended internal length.

I could route the cable so it would only be inside around 1m to connect to the router, and route the other side so it would only be around 1m at the other end. There is already an exisiting hole at the router side for my current wireless broadband, so i could route the cable through there along the bottom wall of the house and rather than going in though the wall at the other end i could run it through the garage door and up the inside of the wall, through the loft hatch on top of the garage, then connect it to a ethernet switch and plug devices into that.

If that route is easy to run, than just buy enough Cat6 or Cat5e internal cable - 50 - 90p per metre, two back boxes, two RJ45 faceplates and there you have it.
