gustov:hamish225:gustov:hamish225: hmm, seems a bit strange to me that you located the ONT away from where you want your broadband to be provisioned, wouldn't it be easier to just connect said TV to the wifi?
Good point. I did consider having the ONT placed where the dedicated ADSL jackpoint was in the office but was swayed by the initial technical visitor who suggested having it behind the TV for future-proofing - especially with the spare ports on the ONT being so handy.
He made the observation that running a CAT5 cable a distance of 5 meters to the office for my internet connection would not reduce my internet speed, given CAT5 cable supports 100Mbps anyway - which is the maximum speed that UFB is offering.
I find wireless streaming of live TV from the Internet to be considerably less reliably than using a wired network connection. I have a network cable from my modem plugged into my UltraPlus X-9200 Set Top Box and that streams BBC1, BBC2 and ITV from England, flawlessly.
ahhh right, and here's me thinking you had cables running from one side of the house to the other and back again! haha don't mind me :P
Maybe I should also add that locating the ONT behind the TV, instead of in the study was to assist with de-cluttering! I have a rats-nest of cables in the study, with cables entering from a roof-top weather station, and coax and open-wire feeders for HF and V/UHF amateur radio antennas on the roof, and CAT5 going out to my work shop, and.. and .. you get the picture!
ah i see, don't want to start a fire now do we :P
