      Sky fibre installation Wired connection Setup

      Hi, so im thinking of getting sky fibre broadband and im wondering if anyone can shed some light on how it works with a wired connection (no wireless interface card)
      >Master socket is down stairs (kitchen)
      >One PC upstairs (my room)
      >One PC in the attic (room with modem)

      i want to keep the set up the same with the modem in the attic(connect to the phone line) and a cable running to downstairs to my room
      >>>>OR
      any variation of this when all PC's are connected fine with a wired connection with fibre broadband, is it possible?


      -thank you

      BTO will only connect the fibre modem to a master socket, so you probably have a couple of options:

      1. If it's feasible, convert the socket in the attic to be the master. The kitchen socket will then become an extension
      2. Keep set up the modem in the kitchen and use homeplugs to connect up your PC in the attic and bedroom.

      Don't forget, for fibre there will be a modem and your router, so you need to site both of them somewhere. BTO can use a data extension kit to run a cable from the modem to the router if the two can't be sited together.
