Cat 6 cable For electrician to lay (q for engineers)
10-01-202007:44 - edited 10-01-202007:47
Our house is being rewired and electrician has offered to run cat 6 cable from front of house (next to existing brown virgin box) to the middle, so router can be in central location in house. Could a Virgin engineer use this cable to connect up to brown box and then install white splitter box in middle of house?
Re: Cat 6 cable For electrician to lay (q for engineers)
Usually the connection from the "brown box" to the router is RG6 coax (that VM usually wish to supply themselves), not ethernet, so that won't help you. Not knowing the local circumstances I can't offer much in the way of useful alternative suggestions, although if there is accessible but visually hidden trunking, the VM field technicians could use that. Bear in mind VM charge £99 for a "non fault callout" as well.
