Hey everyone,

I am getting VDSL installed on Tuesday and have been thinking about doing some wiring.

My current main incoming line is located in the garage and I want to extended the main line upstairs to where I want the VDSL jack point and modem.
I was thinking about running 2 lengths of cat5e (as i have it laying around) from the main jack point to the new location and then joining the cables (as per attached crude drawing).
The distance from the road connection to the purposed new connection is around 50-60m and all joins will be done using the typical telephone jelly connectors.

My questions are:
Is this even viable?
Will I have any adverse effects from extending the cable in this way and this length?
Will the chorus guy accept this sort of arrangement?

It was either this or run a single cat5e just as a network cable and leave the modem in the garage, but as my PC and other network devices are upstairs I would really like the modem close.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Ok sorry for that, basically all i want to do is extened the main incoming line to a new location 30m away from its current location, using cat5e and jelly connectors to join the cables.

get a vdsl modem and put in in the garage, bridge mode it to your route at the other end of the 30M cable.


50M can be a sizeable dip on VDSL, even more so if your already on the edge.

Ethernet can run up to 100m with 0% degradation. (Use ethernet to bridge the gap)

I think we caused JohnR to get this: +1 received by user: 666..

On a serious note. Yes Ethernet is more reliable for these sort of things.

If you want to keep the first jackpoint active, install a master filter at the old jackpoint location, send the dsl output down the cable to the dsl jackpoint and the phone signal to the old jackpoint. Dont connect the dsl output to more than one jackpoint.
