Fitting Ethernet

Message 10 of 10

So my fibre comes to house from roof near bedroom above front door. Then follows drain pipes to dinning room and into modem. 

 

I want ethernet cable to run the same route as fibre but to go into bedroom. So there will be socket in dining room and bedroom so I can get wired internet as WiFi is awful. 

 

Who would I contract for this, does talktalk do it. Or is there another company that does ethernet installs?

 

I wish when they asked where I want fibre modem I said upstairs would of been easier for them but I just picked same place as old internet left a whole in wall. 

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

Just a suggestion from a customer - if you cannot add ethernet cabling yourself, then an alternative solution might be to add a powerline adapter kit such as TL-WPA8631P KIT. Look it up to see the specs.

Hi @Gryphin 

 

@Michelle-TalkTalk has asked me to help you, however, I certainly do not offer any installation services myself. If you cannot do the work yourself, then you would have to find a local tradesperson to do it for you.

Morning,

 

Thanks for the update. @KeithFrench  would you be able to offer any additional advice please?

Got new TP-Link Wifi 6 Router, and it gives me better signal strength and allows me to split 2G and 5G wifi which helps.

 

The main problem still is the front bedroom is better but signal is constantly jumping around and 5G randomly disconnects because of poor signal strength still. Same with back bedroom on same side.

 

I don't know if it will be cheaper hiring someone to fit ethernet sockets or to run a Access Point with Power over ethernet and put a AP somewhere near stairs so it has better signal strength.

If you've ordered a new router then I would give that a try first as you shouldn't really need to run an additional Ethernet cable.

No nothing, I use to get good wifi on old TalkTalk router but with new Eero it just really bad in the front bedroom and back bedroom on right side of house.

 

I have ordered a new TP Link router with better antennas and hopefully that fixes it, if not I was going to look into wired.

Thanks for the diagram, and the wireless signal in the bedroom is poor? Is the router situated close to any wireless or other electrical devices that could be causing interference?

I've added a quick image, sorry for childish drawing (laughing) thought it would be easier than explaining.

Hi Gryphin,

 

Is the bedroom where you want the ethernet cable to run to, directly above where the router is now?
