In theory what would be the best cable to use in a 15 meter run.
My hub is approx 13 meters from my TV+box.would it be best to use a 15 meter RJ45 cable and keep the hub close to the master socket, or would it be best to use a 15 meter RJ11 cable and move the hub closer to the TV+box. Hope this makes sense to someone out there.
I'm using a 0.25m BT431 - RJ11 cable to keep the run from the master socket to the router super short. I bought it from these guys: https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/comms4udotnet
As I'm not using any other telephony devices apart from the router, I was able to eliminate the microfilter as well and plug the router straight into the master socket.
My ethernet cables are 5m cat5e STP shielded ones. Helps to keep the interference down.
You should use the micro-filter. Plugging into the TEST socket removes any filtering at all
even if you don't use a phone on the line, you will likely get interference.
You should put a micro-filter between the test socket and your modem, which will filter out all the usual voice frequencies, thus removing any possible interference from those frequencies.
Or, use a faceplate with a built in filter for a neater finish.
