Larger, more modern homes have a network cabling socket in each room. Benefit: You can plug in your PC or PlayStation in that room and you enjoy an excellent signal. Find out here how to position and wire your Internet-Box to do this.

 

If you wish to use existing home cabling, position the router next to your wiring cupboard (not inside it). This will send the DSL signal from the wiring cupboard straight to the Internet-Box, and from the Internet-Box to the LAN sockets in each room. Proceed as follows:

  1. Connect the DSL cable supplied with the Internet-Box (purple plug) to the telephone port (U interface) in the wiring cupboard and to the “Internet” port on the Internet-Box.
  2. In the wiring cupboard, connect the network port (yellow slot) on the Internet-Box to the LAN connection of the room in question. To do this, use a network cable (yellow plug). Repeat this for all the rooms in which you want to use the signal direct from the socket.wiht_network_cabling.png

Our recommendation:

Use the procedure above if your home has a fibre-optic connection.

 

Without home cabling

If you do not want to use pre-existing home cabling, position the Internet-Box as centrally as possible in your home and use the following cabling procedure:

  1. Connect the DSL cable supplied with the Internet-Box to the “Internet” port and the closest network socket in the room.
  2. Connect the relevant network port (LAN 1) in the wiring cupboard to the telephone port (U interface). To do this, use a network cable.wihout_homecabling.png

Our recommendation:

If the WLAN signal from your Internet-Box does not reach all the areas of your home, use a WLAN-Box to enhance the signal.
