I heard a rumour (from someone who did the course) that the training provided for Hubbell certification is more about advertising than anything related to doing a good job installing a network, although I guess few sparkies would bother training for home network cabling anyway. Fortunately you can generally trust them for power wiring!




The reason we are talking about 12-port patch panels is that the 8-port one usually installed in home network cabinets is flat and may not fit the tiny space left for it (and it looks like more than 8 cables). Not sure anything will fit, so sparkie may need to measure the space before buying a patch panel.

Many thanks for all your help with this. I have provided a summary of your recommendations to the electrician to hopefully fix it. I am in Tauranga so not sure who would be the best person to get in but will see if sparky is able to correct this situation first up.

I cover Tauranga area if you don't succeed with the electrician.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
