I received a hub 4 today and when I tried to self install, I couldn't find a virgin box for the wall socket end of the cable to fix in. All I can see is a cable that won't fit to the wall socket cable.
If thats the one virgin have sent with the kit then that should push fit on to the connector that I have linked. I assume the first pic is of the existing cable. That should go to a box outside. If so that will screw onto the other side of the connector,
Does an attenuator reduce the broadband speeds to the computer?
I am trying to understand the difference between an attenuator and a data coupler.
No, attenuators reduce the power levels to the Hub by the amount marked on it, e.g. 4dba would reduce by 4
It does not affect the speed, but if your power levels were incorrect to begin with, an FPA would make matters worse. So, check your power levels now 🙂 Downstream should be -6 to +10 and Upstream 34 to 51.
Data couplers only join the cables and have no affect on the speed.
