|So this is very convoluted, but to sum it up ATT are ridiculous. Currently we have a main home and a granny unit that shares a garage. Both have DSL lines with only the main having a phone line as well. |
Next we built my little sister a home [we are contractors] 150m+ away. When they called ATT and got U-Verse which is all thats available here, they used the main homes address they "Took" our connection.
So when I called after getting many calls about saving with Uverse and getting better speeds, they then told us they were sorry but the address is taken.
Its ridiculous on so many levels. So now ATT says even though we are paying now for 3 connections we will have to continue to pay for 2 DSL`s+1 uverse no matter what. Also they wont send a tec here to "move" my DSL from the guest house to my man cave, which is about 130 ft from the phone box.
So my problem is I added my man cave out of a shipping container and TBH I rather use wired as im a major gamer.
I guess I need advice on how to take the DSL hookup from the phone box and bury it or raise it.
Should I just use normal outdoor phone cable straight from the "Dry DSL" line? SHould I take it from the little splitter in the garage where meet?
Or should I simply leave the modem in Granny unit hidden somewhere [because my wife hates a mess] and then use Cat5 the whole length?
I just need general help on how to proceed. We have all the tools for burying anything [bobcats,backhoes etc] And while im pretty damned good with certain areas of computing networking is my worst.
So Run cat5 and leave modem in house, or take modem in man cave and run phone cable to it?
I mean I can open my box andsee it clearly labled "Dry DSL" and I coud just splice into that right? Or is there some interference/protocal I would screw up?
Please help guys I have never been to lost as what to do.
And FYI ATT wont give us any service, and even though comcast runs cable here ATT wont let me give us cable either.
I just want my Xbox and gaming PC and work stuff in my shipping container and am 150 ft away from the box. Luckily we also live in the country so we dont have to deal with other people.
And I dont want ATT to stop service if I push this to far as we are net dependent now for our SOLAR.
Sry for errors im on phone that keeps dying.
