Three wired access points

I am wondering if its possible for virgin to come out and install 3 wired access points, 2 in two rooms upstairs. 1 in a room the other end of the house. So basically ethernet ports. Mainly because powerline adapters are not stable or fast on the houses electrics and whilst the wireless is often fine. I find 5Ghz to be mostly unstable and often disappears from the list of networks all together.

 

If there is a way to do this how do i go about it, thanks.

Re: Three wired access points

Virgin won’t, no.

You can use a local sparky to run the cabling though to where you need them to be then install them yourself.

Re: Three wired access points

As others have said. You need to either install yourself or get someone who knows what they are doing to install for you.

My personal recommendation (all location dependant) is that you install a small patch panel with 6a or better to a wall socket. There after connect patch cables between pannel or wall socket to access point and router. 

 

Logic is expense is labour. So future proof with cable good for a 10meg network.

Re: Three wired access points

I know of people who have had this done in the last year by virgin. Is it worth a call do you think?

 

Thanks

Re: Three wired access points

I know of people who have had this done in the last year by virgin”. VM have NEVER installed Ethernet cable for customers. Possibly, but I think it highly unlikely, that it was done by a VM technician out-of-hours for a fee.
