    Hi all,

    Bit of a noob question, possibly, but I want to replace the cable that NTL fit for a Cable Broadband install (standalone cable modem). The one i'm talking about is the one that comes out of the isolator box (at least I think that's what it's called) in the wall and plugs into the back of the cable modem.

    I assume it's something like this:

    or this:
    http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/F-Sky-Satellite-Cable.html

    , but you know what they say about assumptions being the mother of all...disasters.

    Any knowledgable forumites willing to help me out :lease:

    Not claiming to be too knowledgable - learning new stuff each day - but ...

    ...Consider CT100, H109F or WF100 spec from

    http://www.satcure.co.uk/accs/page8.htm

    They carry CT100 & H109F (I use H109F at £12.50/50M but for $ky TV not NTL broadband) in 50M, 100M and 250M lengths too. You definately want a 75ohm cable anyway, and standard F-connectors might not be 100% compatible.

    Paul.

    Look on ebay. There are ready made cables of ct100 with f connectors in various lengths. I bought 15 metres off ebay.
