Broadband set up

I just received my broadband kit, unfortunately my socket in my flat is different so I can’t plug the Ethernet cable in, what can I do?

Re: Broadband set up

Your broadband Hub is connected by co-ax, not Ethernet.

Re: Broadband set up

Can you send us a picture of your socket? 

Also, you are looking for a coax cable, not an ethernet cable.

Re: Broadband set up

start outside and look for the external wall box - 6" square ish usually on wall facing road or pavement - brown or grey usually - follow any cables that come from it and go inside - if there are non look inside opposite external box as they may just have drilled through wall - as said it may just be a cable rather than an internal wall box

post some photos of all the connections you have found in the flat?
