hello, when i switched over to Virgin two years ago, the phone was voip so into the back of the router.
At the time I had new handsets - -- all worked perfectly - apart form the range...because the location of the router vs the location of the study, furthest points form each other.
This has not been a huge issue - apart from no phone signal in the study - but now we are WFH - it is becoming an issue.
What options do I have to run an extension from the router ?
Can it network into my old sockets in the house ?
Hi, yes it can link into the original sockets in the house, you will have to disconnect the old feed into the master socket first though to prevent it from back-feeding the hub.

Thanks - thats interesting. I am not sure thats the route to go down as will need to run a cable for 20 metres to get to the master socket.
Are there any range extenders for handsets from base stations anyone is aware of ?
Or could i run a simple telephone extension wire from the router to a more suitable location for my phone base station ?
Hey there anigelcook, you can try that for VOIP phones. The only other thing I can think of which may not be ideal and will incur a £99 charge is a Hub relocation.
