Ethernet Cable Length

Had a hub delivered, but the nearest power socket is nowhere near the virgin entry point in the house. Is it possible to get a longer Ethernet cable sent out?

Re: Ethernet Cable Length

Hello

VM will only send out a 1m Ethernet cable as that is what they have.

Re: Ethernet Cable Length

do you mean ethernet cable or the one that connects the hub to the VM input - if so thats a coax cable - one of the techs on here might be able to help - wait for VM to pick up the thread

if you do mean an ethernet cable then they are available on ebay and many other places

Re: Ethernet Cable Length

ok - as said one of the techs might be able to help - there are some sold on amazon that are said to be the correct standard - but then again they are not VM parts so you are risking problems - surely its easier to to use an extension cable for the power supply

not sure what they are sending out with Hub3's these days - when i got mine it was a brick with a short figure of 8 lead - if yours is the same just buy a longer lead from the socket to the bower brick
