Distance between NBN Connection box and Telstra Smart Modem
Dear all, hope you can help me with a dumb but slightly technical question.
Am on HFC and just received my NBN box of goodies from Telstra, i.e the NBN Connection box and Telstra Smart modem. There is a 3m white ethernet(?) cable (WAN) to connect the two units. It has a red plug one end and yellow plug the other. Trouble is I need a 5m cable.
OK so dumb question time,
- Is the supplied red plug/yellow plug simply a plain old ethernet cable? Can I replace it with a 5m ethernet cable, or there something special about it?
- Is there a max distance between the nbn Connection box and the Telstra Smart Modem?

Yes, it's a standard ethernet cable. 5m will be fine (technically you could go a maximum of 100m on a CAT6 cable).
