New to all this - any advice please

  TGN 10:55 27 Mar 05

I've just been connected to BT broadband with the main access point downstairs and the desktop computer upstairs - more than the permitted 10m hard wiring distance away. Is wireless access the answer? What kit do I need. What kit do you recommend?
Any advice very welcome

Umm.... 100 metres is the limit for ethernet in one run.....

Assuming you mean by access point, the main phone socket. Provided you use proper telephone extention cable, and put the filter at the computer end, you should have no trouble. If you have a telephone at the access point filter that also.

It doesn't matter if you have two filters in a line.

between master socket and modem is 30 metres, not 10 metres. You can run a phone extension up to that distance, and provided you use a micro-filter at the computer end you'll have no problem
