I am considering installing broadband into my house, I already have NTL Digital and two telephone lines, one being purely for dial and will be replaced by broadband. MY STB is in the lounge downstairs and my PC is in my study upstairs. I have some questions regarding installation, I have looked through threads in this forum but am still a little confused : Will the broadband connection be via my STB, thus the cable will be connected to the back of my STB and then distributed to the study upstairs If the above is the case will the cable be fixed to the outside of the house, thus having to drill further holes in the exterior, i.e. Broadband into house by STB, Broadband out of house fro STB broadband into house for PC ? What sort of cable is used from the back of the STB, is it a standard co-axial TV cable ? if so am I allowed to use some cables already installed in the walls of the house (I have 2 spare co-ax cables from the lounge into the loft area above the study) ? Where does the cable modem have to be, is this near the STB, or the PC or can it sit anywhere between them ? If the Modem can sit anywhere then does it have any restriction on cable lengths from either the input (from STB) or output to PC ? A lot of questions I realise, but I want to understand what the installation involves before I go ahead. My digital installation was a nightmare, with the salesman not understanding what I wanted from NTL and the installers and there supervisor taking the brunt of my annoyance at them not supplying what had been promised by the salesman. I dont want to go through that again.
