We really need a sticky topic for your excellent advice since the question regarding vdsl extensions keeps appearing time and time again smile
It's not sticky, and it's from the middle of a long thread that meanders around somewhat, but starting with this post and reading the following discussion is helpful.

It would be good if we could distil out the salient points of that thread, not least as jez9999 posted some useful 'how to' pictures.

I also have some useful pictures linked to in my signature, One day I'll add the guide to my website, but I'm always busy doing other things.

Word of warning though that may need clarifying.

A few months back with all my issues with adsl, one engineer swapped the paired wires around between me and the street box before fitting a new faceplate, so the colours here would be wrong. I wonder how many households in the UK this has been done to to try to improve dsl connections?

EDIT: OK ignore this - I see you mean to just connect the cat5/6 to the faceplate frontend, not fit a new faceplate to incoming line.

If you connect up the appropriate terminals with the same coloured wires either end then it will make no difference at all. Obviously you should use twisted pairs where appropriate.

Even if your incoming pair are the wrong way around I don't think* it makes any difference these days, some older equipment may be affected though.

Not just the wrong way around, but using other redundant colours of the wire pairs out of the 8 available. But it doesn't matter if you note what the two colours are.
