Hi Currently having some work done. We wanted to have the router upstairs. and then have 2 cables going to other rooms from that point. My basic understanding was it would be : 1 wire from Master to Bedroom 1. (Where another master would be put in) 1 wires from Bedroom 1 to Bedroom 2 1 wire from bedroom 1 to bedroom 3 (With a dual gang rj45 plate in bedroom 1, leading to 2x single rj45 plates in bedroom 2&3) Router in bedroom one The electrician somewhat confirmed that & left BT cat5e cable with the builder to wire through those areas. The builder put all 3 wires coming out of one socket, which i questioned. The electrican was intending to put a master in & then drill holes in the bottom for the cables to come out. I said, no and am making him put in another 1 gang hole. I want a connection plate, but they are saying i need a brush plate and to pull the cables out. First question is, will haveing the plate connection slow down the line? so it will be one cable from router to wall, then wall cable, then another cable other end to pc. so 3 cables. I know more connections could cause issues, but i thought if the electrician does a good job then it wouldnt matter? i asked if having the plate would slow down the network speed & if so by how much. Im not concerned too much about network transfer, its mainly internet that i want to run stable & 100%. i was told : "The cables coming out through the plug plate plug direct into the router. So the plates in the other rooms are recieving signal direct from router so there will be no loss of speed. If all the cables were connected inside the plate you would need a router in each room. WHich would not be the way to go as they all give off wireless signals and would interfere with each other" Now i am assuming hes just talking about wiring them all up to the one plate, which i dont want anyway. So i guess after this long post my question before is the main one. will router > Cable > wall cable > Cable > PC slow down the connection. Or if its done right it shouldnt matter? Thanks!
