Can someone help with what the wiring to a NTE5a master socket on a second phone line would be?
There are 2 phone lines into the property. The main telephone line and a second line that goes into a different room. The second line is wired from the main line. It uses green/white and white/green wires. I presume the green/white white/green is because it is a second line.
The master socket on the 2nd line is not a NTE5, It is a LJU2a. The connections on the LJU2a are:
There are also red/white white/red wires but these are not connected to anything.
From reading around the internet the orange combination wires are the ring/bell wires and do not need to be connected.
On the back of the NTE5a box there are only 2 IDC connectors. A and B. These would be for the blue/white white/blue wires i presume. There is nowhere to connect the green/white white/green wires. So connecting just the blue and white combinations means the line would not be connected.
On the back of the faceplate there are connections for an extension to be run from it. This has 3 IDC connectors numbered 2, 3 and 5. In the LJU2 that is there now the green combination are connected to 1 and 6. (There will not be an extension run though)
Now if a BT engineer was to connect a NTE5a how would they connect the blue/white white/blue and the green/white white/green wires?
