    Rj11 to rj45

    Sorry I am a little lost on your termination, tombstone?? But yes your completely right the guy wants the phone line to come through to the office. With the by master line being in a network cabinet. (See image). So so I need to run something from the by master socket to the socket in the cat 5 rack that feeds the line to the office and then from there to a network and phone system. If if it was upto me it would done via VoIP but the customer is always something lol cant thank you all enough tia David.

    Rj11 to rj45

    Hey guys So I made a post a few days back and was advised that a VoIP system would give me the best results however the person that I am installing this for doesn’t wish to go that route. He he says that’s the current setup is an RJ 11 to rj45. Then to a pass through via cat 5 to a socket and then an RJ45 to RJ11 adaptor to his phone. Now ow he is completely IT mute so he might be wrong. Can someone advise if this would work. The connection to the pass through is only used to send voice with a separate connection for broadband.

    Phone line through network switch

    I’m guessing on both ends? Like hdmi to Ethernet to hdmi??
  6. Hey Guys I am a little stuck. I need to get a phone line (calls) through a cat5 network switch, BT have run the master phoneline socket into a telecoms box, and then let, they are not willing to run the line from the socket to the end user, which is me. The set up is: (and can't be changed as it also serves 100 other offices) Master Socket with a fiber filter Cat5 network switch Cat7 to (nothing at the moment, however there with be RJ45 sockets) Phone out internet out. TIA Regards David

    Adding more than one ISP

    Hey guys i am working on a project in a house that is on a plot of land that has three internet lines coming into it, one on its own only provides around 8mb of speed while one has 6mbs and then there third is 60mbs. They location of the third one is about 500ft from the main house which needs more than the 8mbs it’s getting. I know that around 300ft of cat 7 cable is the limit to how far you can make a network cable so what would be the best way to get the 60mbs the 500ft would adding a router or two between a few say 200ft cables work? And how then could I connect that input to the current setup that I have which is a modem feeding a linksey mesh system? tia
  8. Hey guys. firstly I hope this is in the right place. If not please let me know and I will relocate it to where it needs to go Ok now my issue, so I have just installed a Wryestorm media system throughout my home (it was uninstalled as I needed to change some of my networks infrastructure), I plugged in Sky x2 and it works amazingly I then add back in the Apple tv and now it doesn't. Does anyone have an idea how I can resolve this, please?

    Thank you so much for your wall it is more than I could have ever hoped for. I am on a mobile device at the moment. Once I am hope and on my desktop I’ll go through it and I am sure I will have some more questions. Thanks so much again.
  13. So o have just over hauled my cooling system on my pc. I removed my cpu and reseated it no dramas. I put the normal amount of paste and plugged in my psu and well nope not even the RGB on the mobo that normally is on when the power of attached but not on. i check the normal plugged in and so on and nope. So so I remove the cpu and see if something happens. And like magic the RGB is on. I put the cpu chip back into its socket and the RGB is still on. I then push the arm down to seat it and off it all goes. Map I remove it and change the cpu and the same thing happens. And then try another and again the same thing happens. So I remove the cpu and make sure it is complete clean. I scrub it with a clean brush and hoover out the socket bother open and close and again the exact thing happens. So I am now lost any help would be great full. Tia.

    Webfacing Storage Advice.

    @Salv8 (sam) Thank you for you in-depth replay. So the set up I have my remote computer is a mid-range all round pc that is hard-lined into the internet. (nothing fancy at all, ethernet into a £50 mobo onboard plug). A small 500gb HDD My work Pc is a high-end build with 6gb networking and r7 so on and so forth with a mix of 25tb of NVME, SSD and HDD. They are both running windows and as such, I would like to keep them running windows. My dad uses my other pc from time to time and thinks a byte is something you do with a sandwich. My Aim is as follows. Far as little as possible and using two towers, one remote and one here, The one here I am happy with it being an EATX to fun two machines if I need to. Then I want to be able to access the files in both directions while backing up (automatically or manually I'm not bothered but it must be accessible both ways) I was thinking that the following would be a start but I have a load of holes in my plan. Upgrade both units to 10gb networking. (I am assuming that you cant bottleneck a network connection because of a lack of computing power. But I could also be completely wrong) *quick note I am able to help out jo public with domestic computing issues so I have a good understanding, however, this is a whole new world But that kinda where I fall off. I would be ever so grateful for your help. TIA
  15. Never mind I have it. Thank you guys amazing as always
