In preparation for the installation of FTTC I have purchased a VDSL/ADSL Faceplate MK4 which replaces the phone only socket (at the expense of covering the whole face of the master) and provides an RJ11 data and normal BT voice socket options.
On the reverse of the MK4 faceplate there is an A/B cam socket and I understand that this can be used to take a hardwired (filtered) broadband signal directly to a modem/router. Using my multimeter I can see 50v across these A/B terminals (which I believe is expected).
Could anyone confirm for VDSL purposes that I need to wire A/B to pins 3/4 on an RJ11 into the modem (Vigor 130)
On the front of the lower Master Socket (remember the faceplate has been removed) as per above photograph there is another cam type connection showing pins 5/3/2 which I believe is for hard wiring an internal telephone extension (ie voice).
I have hardwired (pins 5/2) to an RJ11 socket (again pins 5/2) but I am not getting any dial tone and there is no voltage across any of the socket's connections (5/3/2). I am wondering whether this is indicative of a fault with the master socket or am I being somewhat ham-fisted with my wiring?
Thanks in anticipation for any help.
