In reply to a post by RobertoS:
AIUI there is nothing bad about the Mk3 filtered faceplate either. Where "interstitial" comes into it I don't get. The interstitial plate was different again.
The Mk3 is also an interstitial filter because it goes in the interstice between the NTE5a and the faceplate.

Excellent that you, well I deficiently didn't order a new box, just the plug in face plate.


Just to add: be sure to check if your existing NTE5 needs machine screws for securing both the MK3 plate and lower front NTE5A faceplate (i.e. female threaded brass inserts in the body of the NTE5) rather than just molded unthreaded plastic holes for self tapping screws in the newer NTE5's. If self tapping screws are used inappropriately and forced in they can damage the older NTE5 brass threads which could be be difficult to repair.

I seem to remember that the Mk3 plate comes with long machine and self tapping screws to suit either backbox so a good point to check which is needed.

Yes on occasions I have had to re-tap the brass threads after self tappers were used inappropriately, would not screw in completely and damaged the threads before being able to use the correct machine screws.

Any suggestions for cabling extending for the "VDSL" bit to a nice useful location (instead of the silly old middle of hallway) like my comm's room, I have some Cat 5e or Cat 6a (solid core).
Would the 6a with a rj45 at one end and the other end into the Mk3 face plate be the way to go?


If you are using solid core 100% copper cat5e cable for the "data extension" you may find it better to hard wire from the A&B terminals on the Mk3 plate to a dedicated rj11 socket in your "comm's room". A rj11 plug on the modem/router end of the cable would also be OK but generally speaking a flexible stranded DSL cable from a dedicated rj11 socket to the modem/router could be more suitable depending upon the situation.

Good luck.

I have indeed used solid core 100% copper cat5e cable and the A&B terminals from the Mk3 Face plate.
At the moment its just terminated in an RJ45 as that's what my Modem (Fritz! Box7360 V2) uses for the wan port.
I like the idea of an RJ11 socket though as its more future compatible, ill have a look for one.

Thanks again

If you have an RJ45 socket there's really no need to 'upgrade' to RJ11 because you can insert an RJ11 plug into it anyway.

Actually a rj45 socket would also be OK but if one used a DSL lead with standard rj11 plugs this could result in a lose of continued conductivity even if the plug is only slightly disturbed within the socket. Hard wiring to the A&B terminals on the Mk3 plate and a hard wired connection to a rj11 socket plus a rj11 plug on a DSL lead should provide a very sound connection almost equivalent to a rj45 plug directly on the modem/router end of the cat5e cable which you are using.

Perhaps the only rj45 socket that is relevant here is the one on the Mk3 plate which the OP is not using?
