Re: Relocating my Modem and Router - Faceplate question


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by RobertoS:
The obvious can be missed smile. Even by people who have been doing the job for years.

Be careful not to strip back much of the inner insulation for this test. You could end up with unreliable ends of the cable.


I think you mentioned the inner insulation earlier on too - what do you mean by this? And how do you prevent from stripping it back when punching down?

The IDC connector cuts through it as you pushed the wire between them. That’s why I posted what IDC stands for. It ensures no uninsulated wire can be touched by any other conducting item.

Professional Krone tools even snip off the protruding part of the wire as well.

AIUI stripping back the insulation can also cause the final contact to be imperfect, though personally I don’t see why it should.

REMOVE FACEPLATE FIRST


[re: bapesta786] [link to this post]
 
You need to remove the faceplate first before doing any continuity testing i.e. to ensure you are not inadvertently twisting together the pair from the actual phone line

Not really been following all this ...

Are you able to post some pictures of what’s at either end, with all the terminations on show ?

So you’re trying to provide dial tone and DSL on the ‘extension’ end ?

Hi bapesta786

Is there any possibility the unterminated cable in your garage (the one you are putting the extension socket on) does not come directly from the original faceplate of the master socket (NTE5) in your lounge?
