    Hi
    Does anybody know of a product that would enable me to add an additional phone socket into my garage without having to dig up the drive to get to it?
    as i want to install sky hd in there and play my xbox online but i dont want the mess of diggin up my drive to do so. i have a n1 belkin modem router and was wondering whether that could transmit the internet but still need a phone line for sky

    Hi

    I don't have the answer for you but just wanted you to knopw that you should not buy the Maplin product. It does not work with the HD box (at least not the first generation thomson box that I have).

    I have been searching high and low for a product that does work but as yet I have not found anything that does the job.

    Good luck.

    I recall seeing a Thomson product to do exactly what you need. It used the mains wiring in a house to carry a telephone signal from a room with a phone socket to one without. Try Argos online to find a product name.
