Thanks for your reply. I followed it inside but it doesn't lead to an internal box as such. Its simply a wire coming inside from the brown box with an ethernet plug at the end. My first thought was that it would be the ethernet wire that would plug into my hub but then quickly realised that the white wire is a must but no port to connect this. Would I need to have the ethernet plug piece removed and shaped with a connector for the white cable? And would that be a job for a tech?
I dont believe VM route ethernet cables from the outside box to the inside. Are you sure that the cable that goes through the wall into the house and ends with a RJ45 ethernet connector is actually going into the brown box on the outside and isnt just running around the house to somewhere else?
Some photos whould be helpful.

I do not work for VM. My services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired 2 WiFi,) SH2 in modem mode with Airport Extreme Router +2 Airport Express's. On VIVID200, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.
So the Ethernet wire appears to be coming from a different company setup (possibly a pre existing sky connection as that is all I can see). There are 2 wires which go from the brown box. One is the main cable which leads to the exchange i believe and the the other comes into my house and has been capped off and stuffed back into the wall.
I'm guessing I'd need a tech out to install a new wire from the brown box and also setup a new internal wall connection as the previous one looks to have been ripped out unfortunately.
