Ring Wire


[link to this post]
 
Seems as if my ring wire is connected behind my face plate, would it be worth removing this, as this might be causing the humming problem that i have mentioned in the other thread on here?.

Can't hurt.
As someone who's been around (on these forums) for years, I'm surprised you haven't checked that already wink

The thing is i have the phone/adsl plugged in the test socket now, so would there be any improvement if i took the ring wire out, thats why i haven't already, would the same performance come from the test socket as it would if the ring wire was removed?.

In reply to a post by tommy_boi:

Yes, because the ring wire is introduced after the test socket.

I thought the first thing a "Fountain of Knowledge" would do is to remove any potential things that could harm connection speed!

Was Eclipse Home Option 1 & VM 2Mb

Good point, but the thing is, i have left it attached as apparently the new BT openreach sockets already have filters built in for the ring wire, so didn't know if it would be worth removing it or not, but i am not sure how true the filter story is?.

Apparently the new BT openreach sockets already have a filter for the ring wire, would it still be worth removing this, it is the wire connected to point 3 isn't it?.

Ok, just removed the ring wire, well i hope it was, it was connected to point 3 on the socket, this is the results, the humming sound i seem to be getting which has been discussed in another thread seems to be gone now, but with the BT faceplate out of the test socket, when i plug the phone in the socket i dont get any dial tone, i have to plug the whole thing back in to get a dial tone, as before i removed the ring wire, i could get a dial tone with the phone plugged in without the faceplate plugged in the test socket, why has this changed?.

The ring wire should have been connected to the removable faceplate, so I'm not sure how this can affect the test socket?

Re: Ring Wire (Update, Removed Wire Slower Sync)


[re: Oliver341] [link to this post]
 
Scrub my last post i think it was me being dumb,

I've also just spoke to sky because my broadband has took a turn for the worse by taken the ring wire out, it has gone from a sync of 14209 to 12362, but for some reason i am also getting loads of errors on the line, before taken the ring wire out i didn't have any, the upload sync has also dropped to 765 from 1086?.
