ADSL Faceplate


[link to this post]
 
I recently ordered an ADSL Faceplate but received an I-plate!

How can a faceplate greatly improve sync/speed, surely using a filter is the same whether it be built in to the faceplate or seperate?

I don't see the point in this I-plate because all it does is replace the cover of the original except with a built in filter, no wiring to be completed... frown

the iPlate filters the ring wire only, so it can be helpful and is designed to be easy to install without needing a rewire.

The faceplate filters are full ADSL filters that can filter the whole setup centrally meaning you don't need dangle filters.

As yarwell says. Plus - standard dangly filters don't filter the ring wire.

And some filtered faceplates will give you the option of connecting a CAT5 cable to the A&B terminals on the back which will allow an alternative location for a modem/router, a phone can still be used connected to the front of the filtered faceplate and any extension wiring (preferably a maximum of 2 extensions) will also be filtered connected to terminals 2 & 5.

The filtered faceplate I had caused no end of connection problems. It wasn't until I replaced it with a dangly filter that my connection problems ceased. It's now never been so stable! My router was connected for over 60 days until it was interrupted by me. That is on a fairly long line 4+KM.

You were done! Send it back. You can do the job of an I-plate manually yourself.

Better still deal with someone that knows what they're talking about. I've dealt with Clarity for some years with no probs. No they're not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.

I just read the OP again.

I don't think he did receive an iPlate. That doesn't replace anything, particularly any cover.

Anyway, that was April.

That's because you use the wrong toothpaste. The colour of the stripes is vitally important, because of the frequencies they absorb.

Re: ADSL Faceplate


[re: yarwell] [link to this post]
 
At the moment im hardwired into the back of the master mainly because my modem is upstairs about 4.5m from the master socket and using Cat5 But the reason is there is only a short bit on the main incoming 2core wire so would struggle to fit a large style back plate and new style adaptor plate with inbuilt filtering but if i could get a bit more free wire out of the wall what is the best plate and socket to go with please.
Or can anyone suggest a better way of connection. I need the modem up there as its the best place so I can get a decent connection down the garden to the radio shack.

Need a photo of your existing setup so we can really understand what "hardwired into the back of the master" means.

Do you mean connected to the master faceplate like in the picture http://www.thinkbroadband.com/images/faq/faceplates/...

Hello
Yes I think that is how its connected But if I remember right its only got two wites connected 2 and 5 but im not 100% I will have to check.

Also I should have put that the modem shuts off now and again and some of those times it does it 3-4 5 times in a row, And I have to turn it on and off to get it to boot up right.
