Moving the TV

Postby Balhamberry » Tue Jan 08, 2019 8:34 pm

Hi - we are moving our TV from the front of our double reception to the rear.  Our Virgin hub, broadband, aerial, etc are all in the front of the house, next to the bay window.

Any suggestions of who we need to speak to to get all this moved, in as neat a manner as possible?  Is it Virgin, or are there independent folk who can help with all this?

We will also be getting the TV mounted on the wall, so if the recommendation is for someone who can do all of this in one, all the better.

Thanks in advance

Check out a Powerline adapter that plugs the router in its current location into the 13 amp mains and distributes the signal around the house using the mains electricity circuit.  We use a Devolo https://www.devolo.com/internet-in-any-room.html (Netgear make one too) and it works really well as long as you reboot it every 2 or 3 days.  No need for rewiring.  Hope that helps.

We also use Netgear. But in our case, the problem was not in the adapter. Just because of the change in the mains voltage, the Wi-Fi router settings fell. We had to reconfigure it. It isn't so difficult. Click here to download detailed instructions. We have printed the same one in case of a failure on the Internet. I hope this information is useful for you too.
