Re: Openreach Cabling


[re: Opabinia] [link to this post]
 
am i right in asuming Picture 1 Is the main socket? if so it would be a case of attaching the 2nd socket box to the wall and then attaching the cables. i would then fit the FTTC modem next to the NTE socket and then run Cat5e or Cat6 cable to the current location of the router. (Please note this is only my suggestion and this is probably against the terms set out by BT)

In answer to your question yes if I remove front part of the box as you asked the phone does go off. Is that significant?

Yes, it means it has been done correctly, in as much as the filtered frontplate is doing what it is supposed to do.

Thanks again.

jaime Yes you are quite right it is the master socket. What you suggest sounds interesting and I'm intrigued. I don't doubt it would be against their warranty whatever warranty it they supply.



zarjaz, well that's a comfort at least. Would you agree with jaime's suggestion?

If you look in my signature there is a picture guide, it may well help if you need to sort things out yourself.
