Can anyone tell me how I shorten the cable on my virgin media broadband. I went to Maplin were the guy said that probably Virgin used their own brand connectors and cable, so if I tried to cut it and reconnect it, it wouldn't work. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
How short do you need it because argos sell a madeup one that is 10metres long which I used to extend mine and it works fine the cable looks like a coaxial and has a screw fitting on both ends.
When I had my cable installed I had 2 boxes (back in the days of nynex) and I already had a coaxial lead running through a conduite in the wall to upstairs and the just used that cable and put a screw fitting on each end, you can buy those fittings from electrical shops such as electrotrade.
Quite short, just a yard or two, in old style. Can I just tweak the connection off, as Maplin said it might be dangerous as VIRGIN might say I was fiddling with the cable. Can you give me the reference number in Argos, so I can have a look? Thanks
