      multiroom phone line

      just had a conservatory built and want a multi box in there but there is only 1 phone point in the house (livingroom) and as the crow flys its through 2 walls. Are there any wireless options open to me which are plug and play scenario (check username...not got the time,inclination or energy for any hassle). The current phone point has my broadband,sky+hd and dect phone connected at the moment. Or is the easier option to get the highway men from bt to install a new line and pay the 220 quoted by them.

      Re: multiroom phone line

      Both boxes have to be connected to a phone line with the same directory number so getting a second line installed by BT is not an option.

      There are wireless options but Sky do not sell them. You could check out RTX Wireless Phone Jack.

      I don't have any personal experience with using these but from the comments it would appear that other people have used them successfully for this purpose.
