Oblivian:

 

theitman: So went to the house today and had a look to see if I could actually squeeze everything into the cabinet. I can actually fit everything in there but it's tight and probably not safe? So what I'm going to do it have the modem and router in the lounge, I still want to have the lan port in the bedroom active for the gaming PC, can someone further explain how I set that up? Patch from the modem back into a lan port that goes back to the patch panel and jump it? Thanks

 

 

 

My crude paint image was that. But here it is again in more detail. You can replace the switch for 'direct connection to BRDM' but it limits activating other ports in the home without one.

Ok so just confirming this before i go and buy all the lan cables and a switch:

 

ONT connected via lan cable to the lounge patch panel (number 7) which connects in the lounge to the WAN port on the big pipe modem (in lounge).

 

How does the LAN1 (in the lounge) connect to the switch in the garage? Do i just plug the lan 1 cable into another active lan cable in the lounge and then patch that to the switch?

 

So confusing


Banana?

Yes.

 

LAN1 in the lounge goes back to the garage via the other socket in the wall. From there a small patch cable from the patch panel to the switch. Then you can patch the other ports on the switch to the rest of the rooms (eg. Bedroom).

 

If it were me, I would not bother using the Bigpipe router. Your Asus should be able to handle the connection to Bigpipe just fine.

 

Bigpipe has a (user submitted) huide for the RT-AC66U here: http://pages.bigpipe.co.nz/asus-rt-a66u-router-setup-guide-ufb/
