Ethernet Connection Points

An Ethernet connector, internet connection or data point is the fastest and most convenient way to access your home’s internet. While Wi-Fi is great, it’s not a direct connection and it can often drop out or freeze.

Wall socket connection points eliminate latency and lag as simple links to your local access network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN).

They work by taking the internet signal from your router and carrying it directly to your PC through a wall socket. The internet speeds you’ll receive are dependent on the quality of your home’s data cabling, the strength of the signal and your internet plan.

Fast data transfer speed is perfect for heavy usage, and if you’re an avid gamer, streamer or are working from home, you want reliable internet.

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors can assist in all facets, including data cabling, internet connections and even smart home services.

We can ensure your home office is ready for a big assignment, or your gaming setup can handle a hardcore night.

Subtle Internet Connections

If you’re planning on adding a new ethernet point to one of the walls in your home, it is always recommended to call upon the expertise of a licensed electrician.

You can have an Ethernet connection by plugging it into your Wi-Fi router and the Ethernet port of your device. While this is easy to do yourself, it can get very messy if your cable management is lacking.

Instead, Metropolitan Electrical Contractors can install cabling infrastructure throughout the walls for a neat and organised home. Our team of local electricians can also work with you to decide:

  • Where to have your modem
  • Which rooms to wire
  • How many points you need
  • What path the cables should take
  • How much speed you need for your requirements

FAQs - All you Need to Know about Internet Connectors

Read on for some extra details about internet connectors.

When you’re looking at Ethernet cables, you’ll come across Category 5 and Category 6 cables. CAT5 has been primarily used over the years, but has been largely replaced by the new CAT5E – the ‘E’ stands for “enhanced”.

CAT5 Ethernet cables are able to handle a speed up to 100 Mbps at 100 MHz bandwidth.  CAT6 is similar to CAT5, but has a greater bandwidth capacity at 250 Mhz and faster speed at 10 Gbps.

When deciding which type to install at your home or office, you’ll want to look at your current internet speed or requirements for your work. If internet speed or cross-talk is a concern, CAT6 will be a better option. CAT6 cables also tend to be thicker than CAT5, so this also needs to be considered.

Your Ethernet speed largely depends on the type of Ethernet connection you have – CAT5 or CAT6. Regardless, your internet speed with an Ethernet cable is faster than just connecting to your Wi-Fi.

This speed discrepancy is due to the capability of your Wi-Fi router’s hardware, as well as your Wi-Fi devices. Ethernet cables are simply able to support more. If your devices exceed the maximum data rate your internet service provider has, then you have reason to consider Ethernet for these devices.

Phone and Ethernet cables look quite similar, and it can be easy to mix them up. They are not interchangeable, however, and there are a few ways you can spot the difference:

  • Telephone cables have RJ11/RJ12 connectors which have 4-6 pins
  • Ethernet cables have RJ45 connecter which have 8 pins
  • RJ11/RJ12 connectors in phone cables mean they are smaller in size than Ethernet cables

If you try and put your Ethernet cable into a telephone port, you’ll quickly find out that you’ve got the wrong cable since it won’t fit! Likewise for an Ethernet port, if you try to plug a phone cable in it will be too small.
