Thread: Telephone and Broadband help needed !

  1. #1

    Telephone and Broadband help needed !

    I need to get a phone line with broadband from one building to another. The distance is about 90m.

    The incoming line has a 3 phones and a broadband router. I know the whereabouts of the master socket.

    What is the best way of getting a phone and broadband into a further building? Is it as simple as putting a wire between the two, putting a socket on the end, filter and router ?

    Thanks in advance

    be careful - 90m is about the limit for a stretch of Cat5. Assuming you have line of sight, you're better off going for a wireless bridge solution.

    One Q: I don't suppose the two buildings are on the same spur of the ring main are they?

    +1 - I would go for the extender that jumps on your wiring
    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent

    Buildings on separate ring mains.

    Does a wireless bridge solution plug into the back of a router..... run up to a high point with a cable then beam across to a receiver, then a cable runs from the receiver to a further router ? Are they simple to install ?

    Regards

    I'm surprised that you can even stretch a cat more than a few metres. Must be a big one.
