Bit small, and you dont need the [IMG] tags.
What colours are the 2 wires in pic 2?
as mentioned previously ..........
Some days ago, I disconnected all other wires, leaving the "white with some blue fleck" wire connected to #5; and the "blue with some white fleck" wire connected to #2. All the disconnected wires were bent back in the opposite direction to the faceplate, and folded back up the sleeve carrying all the wires, so that there would be no accidental contact with the faceplate, when screwed back up.
From my own gut feeling, and maybe some others on here ............
(a) I think I should reconnect all the wires I disconnected, as I had better upload/download speeds prior to disconnecting "bell" wires etc.
(b) Insist on a new router from Orange, as mine is 2 years old, and it's only a month or so that's elapsed since starting a new Orange contract in another family name.
Unless anyone else has any better advice. Thanks.
p.s. I thought the pics come up small on the recommended site, when on my camera's software they appear humungus!
My BT Faceplate wires were all reconnected 2 days ago, the phone works (it's never been affected) and the change back to fully wired faceplate, does not seem to have impacted on my line speed.
