Hello, we have just ordered an upgrade to fast broadband (engineer to arrive Tuesday afternoon), but I think we should cancel the upgrade because of the odd set-up we have. The telephone/network set-up is unusual, and somewhat less than ideal, for historical reasons, as ever. The telephone line comes into the house on the first floor, with the master socket in the main bedroom. However, the main computer, for several years the only computer, is in an outbuilding near to the house, along with my hi-fi and much else. Please note that the buildings are all of stone with walls a minimum of a foot thick. So, we have an approximately 30' long extension cable (not the cheap kit cable) running from the rear of the master socket out through the eaves and across to the outbuilding, where the home hub is. A couple of years ago, wanting to use laptops in the house, and with the home hub on a window-sill facing the house, I installed an Edimax Wi-Fi range extender on a widow-sill in the house (facing the outbuilding), thus providing network access through the ground floor of the house. So we have the telephone line into the house, out to the outbuilding, into the home hub which gives a network there and over to the extender in the home giving wifi in the house. Yes I know it's a bit silly but we are where we are. I also replaced the HH2 with a HH5 bought off e-bay last year to give me gigabit ethernet ports to support my new NAS drive which supports a music network, amonst other things. The problem is that I would think that the BT engineer (OpenReach?) will almost certainly only install the new HH5 in the house, and will not want to connect up to the long extension; indeed he will probably just want to disconnect that. As I now have two HH5s I have been think of making the old one (in the outbuilding) a slave/access-point connected via ethernet cable to the new one in the house. Unfortunately I think it would be impossible to expect the installer to provide an ethernet cable connection to the outbuilding even if I offer to pay extra. This would leave the desktop computer (my main computer), the NAS and the hi-fi off the network. Can anyone say what you can ask the installers to do, and if they would just be prepared to connect us up to fast broadband using the set-up described above, so that we have faster broadband even if not as good as it could be? I should say that I would not be able to install cables through stone walls and between buildings myself, and I do not know where to fine a 'home' installer around here (Herefordshire, between Hereford and Ross-on-Wye). I am about to try and cancel the upgrade and return the new HH5, but would be very grateful to hear if anyone thinks this is my only option.
