Telewest cable doesn’t fit


I have bought a virgin media package but cannot get the internet cable to fit to the old telewest box. Any suggestions ?

You may need one of these  Tristar Data cable coupler | DIY at B&Q  to join the two cables.

Re: Telewest cable doesn’t fit

the old telewest box should have a screw connector the new cables from VM are push fit - they should connect but they can need some force to get then to fit

Re: Telewest cable doesn’t fit

Unscrew that cable from the bottom of the wall box, and push the new cable into that socket

Re: Telewest cable doesn’t fit

It will, you may need pliers or such like

It should be nut shaped, so even an adjustable spanner.
