Morning all, I have just shifted into a new house, that has a Hills Home Hub installed in a bedroom cupboard. Phone line terminates into this cabinet into a Hills Home hub HTM-408SRK Telephone Module.

http://www.das.com.au/en-au/Products/smart-homes/hills-home-hub/modules/Patching%20Telephone%20Module

Reading the forums and websites, it appears that a Chorus tech will install a new jackpoint somewhere in the house as a dedicated VDSL socket.  Can this jackpoint be installed in the bedroom cabinet, so I can then patch the VDSL modem into any of the many network points in the house?

As its a new house, I'm unsure of the wireless performance and want to ensure I get the VDSL modem in the right spot for the multiple devices that will connect. The modem is currently with the courier, and install booked for Wednesday, and I want to ensure its done right. Thanks for any help.

In your case I would suspect that they wouldnt need to install anything (in the way of new cableing and a jkpt)  if you have a Cat5+ rated cable from your ETP to your HUB - they would just need to install a master filter, if one hasnt already been installed.

(I will quailfy this by saying not all install techs are up to speed with HUB Modules & how to best configure them, so they actualy may install a jkpt in your pannel)

- as the intention of installing a dedicated RJ45jkpt on a section of Cat6 cable from the ETP to the Router, is to provide a better circuit than the basic voice cabling that has been installed over the past 40yrs in most homes and which is not the situation that you appear to have.


- Yes you should be able to patch the connection to what ever point in the house it is required (again I will qualify this with providing whoever put your pannel work to gether in the first place did a good job - ie multipule cableing to common points with RJ45 sockets and the correct terminations on the modules)

TimA: Installer, What about the required Master Filter?

Cheers


Note: First post Re-edited

Option1 - Chorus request it is installed @ the ETP with the voice/xdsl split on to different circuits/Pairs in the Cat5+ (Cat5+ reffers to any Cat Cable rated Cat5 or better) - This makes easier fault diaognostics by the service tech - acces not required

Option 2 - Some people prefer to split services on the HUB panels by installing the master Filter on or near the pannel -


The most common config I have seen (and I have used to wire up the modules) Line1 Voice (Before alarm), Line2 Voice (After Alrm) , Line 3 xDSL &  Line 4 - Unfilltered (both xDSL @ Voice ) if Master filter @ Panel

Thanks for the response. I can't see a master filter in there anywhere, just the line in directly attached to the module. Hopefully he can put something in the panel and not out at any jackpoints in the house, and let me then choose modem location.
