No, if you read the outcome;
It was the way it was set up with the modem and hub at the start of the Data Kit rather then the end. When I attempted to move it about first, I didnt realise that the new faceplace and the Data Kit accepted both RJ11 and RJ45 connections!!
...and then read through my description of the correct set up, you'll see I was right ! The person who seems to have been drinking was the installing engineer. I wonder if the engineer didn't fully finish the install, due to the V21 issue described in the OP's original post.
be wise in retrospect but I will now respectfully ask you
to please go back and read my initial post to the OP in which I asked --
Can you be a little more explicit other than "isn't working", please? Details? Observations? Please describe your LAN configuration.
From that, you should be able to deduce that the OP's current set-up was not clearly defined.
If you are an employee of OpenReach or BT, please say so.
Please provide a link to the relevant official
documentation that says that the "Data Kit" it to extend the VDSL signal to the OpenReach supplied modem which has been sited away from the NTE5A + "faceplate filter". (My apologies for not using the correct terminology for the latter.)
In my last but one sentence, above, which I summarise your "description of the correct set up
" (quoting your words) is at total variance to all BT Infinity installations that I have seen. Until you can show me otherwise (in official
documentation, as requested above), a correct
installation has the VDSL modem sited at the NTE5A
. If a "Data Kit" is requested by the EU, the normal method is to use it to link the NTE5A sited VDSL modem to the HH3 (or other EU supplied equipment). A less "correct" installation would be as the OP of this thread requested. The VDSL modem and HH3 to be sited at the NTE5A and the "Data Kit" to extend from one of the LAN ports of the HH3 to another location. A totally abnormal and incorrect installation would be to use the "Data Kit" as you have described.
