JL&T Railroad Blog - Layout gets Broadband/Internet...

Hi All,

One of the first of the unfinished jobs that I wanted to complete since the JL&T received it's reprieve was to get an internet connection in the layout room.

Because of the distance between the house and the layout room, and the shed being constructed with metal sheeting (colourbond) WiFi was not going to be a viable option.  So I needed to run a hard wire Cat5 cable from our study to the layout room.

 



So yesterday I ran 65 metres of Cat5 from the study through the rook space and down through a conduit in the backyard to the shed.  The cable just reached and just needs the ends terminated and connected to the modems.


Hopefully in the next couple of days I will a dedicated internet connection in the layout ready to stream some layout time via Skype / Facetime - iChat for any of you who'd care to drop in and have a look.

Cheers,

Jas...
