      Re: cabling help

      Thanks once again.
      I will order my faceplates from adslnation soon. I think they will provide a far neater looking setup and I may install a filterplate in the bedroom. Just in case I move the pc to that room. Much neater plugging in the modem into the socket than having "Soap on a rope" as you described it from all the sockets in the house.
      On a final note do you recommend replacing the standard cable that sky sent with the router that i currently plug into the soap on a rope which will go to the filtered socket/ faceplate. If so what do you recommend.

      This site is superb. Wish I found it ages ago.

      thanks

      Re: cabling help

      A good twisted pair cable would be a good idea (ADSL nation again, I have no connection with them)
      In an ideal world, the phone cable from the router should be as short as possible, but domestic considerations have to be taken into account, and the gain for doing this can be small.

      Just a thought, don't forget to order a couple of insertion tools for making the connections
