Bright Box 2 design flaw?

I have now connected my broadband, and have three ethernet cabes plugged in, but the cables get in the way of the 'stand' at the back!

To keep the cables as straight as possible they are positioned underneath the stand, so the stand is not even being used, it is just possibe to place the cables above the stand, but they are not straight and I beleive the cable connectors could eventually break over time, even if you did leave the cables above the stand there is still one that does not go over the stand (port 1 and port 4) and the cable pretty much acts as the stand.

I have had to use blu-tac to keep the router in place. Does anyone else have this issue?

Just bend the cable a little, they are quite flexible, no need to keep them straight.

Hi @Aid45,

 

Welcome back to the EE Community.

 

I haven't had this particular issue, is the stand aligned correctly?

 

Thanks

 

James

Yes, I find that too. I have to bend the cable to port 4, the fast 1, to get it over the foot of the stand. It's OK after that if you leave it alone. There is no problem with port 1.
