I'd like to put an internet access point in a place which will require about 200 metres of cable and before I invest in that amount of cable, I'd like to know if it is actually possible!
The Router/Modem is fairly new (although I can't recall make/model at present) but would it need to be upgraded?
The ISP is BTConnect; currently works great both cabled and wi-fi. Will 200 metres of cable degrade the speed?
Thanks for any advice.
Maximum length of ethernet cable run is generally 100 metres for Cat5/Cat6.
Thanks; that answers that question.
"Will 200 metres of cable degrade the speed?"
In a word, yes. If you want to install a run longer than 100 metres you'll need to introduce a repeater at the halfway point.
Thanks, that's an option I'd not known about. I'll be sorting this out in a month or so.
An alternative, if the locations are on the same mains circuit, is the use a pair of Powerline Homeplugs
Or you can use the Devolo adapters - see here
use wifi with a yagi antenna. i have a 1km wifi connection with standard 802.11 g/b equipment.
