The grammatically challenged (and dubious taste) colour code mnemonics wouldn't be the same with a G instead of an S!

Problem with slate is that it isn't necessarily grey tongue

My last post did not appear to go through so here it is again.
I've added a link to a rather badly drawn diagram which about sums up what I am after.
Each cable in the diagram uses the built in sockets available on each faceplate, rather than connect cables via the back of the BT master socket which to reiterate is a dual BT phone and RJ11 socket with built in filter.
The only cables which would not have connectors would be the cables connecting the two faceplates either side of the walls.

The diagram can be found here.

Just to repeat my previous comment - that is a real cowboy way to do it. You will have filters hanging on lines, changing impedances and responses which could easily cause problems.

I have given you an easier and cheaper solution to do it in an appropriate way - what is wrong with it?

Always been slate in my world. But things change.

The biggest chuckle to me is E0 lines which appear to be 'Exchange Only' lines nowadays which anybody who remembers E0, E1, E2 etc must guffaw at. Laugh, I nearly dropped my AT1's, er I mean my 81s.

Hi MHC

Your solution is clear and one which I appreciate. I understand running a cable from the BT master socket internally to a faceplate containing those modules. You mention "At the far end" which I have taken as being in the room 2 in my diagram, would that be correct? If so, the cable coming into that faceplate containing the modules would just go through the wall from the room 1 and not through its own faceplate. If that is the case, I'd be looking to tidy that bit up so that the cable would go through a blanking plate of some sort.
Do you have any suggestions for that?

Many thanks for your input, much appreciated.

As MHC says, your diagram shows a real lash-up of a solution, which is likely to perform badly. You want one filter at the master socket and no others.


I'm not even clear whether we're attempting to reuse an existing cable through the cavity wall or not. If so, how many wires does the existing cable contain, what colours are they, and do they appear to be twisted together in pairs?

Are the only places you need a phone socket next to the FTTC modem, as in your diagram, and possibly at the master?


If you are installing new cable through the wall, the way to draw attention to the ends of that cable and be likely to damage existing decoration is to mess around letting back boxes into the wall and cover them with blanking plates.

Depending on whether you extend the VDSL or leave the modem where it was and connect modem to router over an Ethernet cable, you need one or two runs of solid core Category 5e cable. This will run easily in some mini trunking - just drill from the back of the trunking and fit an end cap to the trunking. If you subsequently redecorate, you can chase the cable into the wall and fill over the top.
