I am wanting to be ready for when Fibre is available but also improve my homes current wiring.
I am with Vodafone. When I am only using 1 Ethernet connection, I get 17mb download, nd 1mb upload speeds.
But when I use two or more Ethernet connections (PS3 , PC) i only get 5mb download & 0.4mb upload speed.
I use a 10 or 15m phone line extension.
The connection would lag when I was in my room, so I moved out into the lounge to use another Jack and it gave me the 17mb d/l 1mb u/l speed. The speeds would go down when using more than 1 and the connection would disconnect then start reconnecting again every time I plugged a ethernet device in/out. So I used the previous jack in the room and gave me the same faster speed.
So I am wanting to get my house wiring done.
I was wondering do the connections speed decrease as you use them more, b/c unused active jacks tend to provide the faster speed after a while without using it.
Also, can I get star wiring with my current copper connection ? And will the speeds be any slower by having active unused RJ45 ports.
I am wanting to get that Service Delivery Point installed, with the star wiring , to have RJ45 connections ready in the wall to plug easily into. And to be able to easily switch over from copper to fibre.
