Hi. Please be nice as I'm new and certainly not an expert. I'v tried researching the hell out of this and can't seem to find the right fix.
I have recently moved into a brand new house that has a Spark Fibre ONT installed in my garage. I have a multiple port patch panel that I currently have my WiFi Router connected to in the middle of the house. It works great. I'm wanting to connect a couple of devices (PC and Laptop) that sit on the edge of the wifi zone to outlets that are in bedrooms that are patched back to the garage however when I try to connect to the internet the PC can see the ONT but won't connect to the internet. Do I need a separate router for the 'hard-wired' outlets ?
I have completed all the basic checks with cables and outlets so I'm reasonably confident I'm asking the right question. I have also checked to make sure the devices don't have a static IP. I can use the wi-fi for these devices however as mentioned its patchy as its on the edge of the range of the router and I have a patch panel so i figure I may as well use it.
I feel like I have exhausted the shallow pool of my knowledge and I'm looking for some specialist advice please :)
