Mostly differnet I think. The one with the solid blue and solid white wires is FO442.
Like Alwall says, that ain't the master.

There should be a master before it with 2 incoming wires going to terminals marked A and B and 3 outgoing wires blue, white and orange, connected to 2,5 and 3. - as Mr Saffron mentioned earlier.

No problem. The pleasure was all mine.
I have not been posting on this forum that much longer
than you and may brain still hurts sometimes too !
I think that I am just about getting the hang of it, now.

That's the problem that Batboy and I are trying to help with!
Every socket had two ring wires connected.
That's why we are trying to help the OP trace the incoming pair.

Unless it was a botched job by the builder and the BTO engineer who made the external connections did not check . . .

A botched job by a builder? Surely not smile

Somehow I doubt a BTO engineer was involved.

That's your opinion, which I respect.

My opinion, from seeing the Gel Crimps, etc, is that a BTO engineer did make the final black-cable-to-grey- cable connection, under the external shroud, late on a rainy Friday afternoon. wink

If it helps all the wires were in place when we moved in except for the actual phone line. For this we got BT to come and dig up the road. As far as I recall they were never in the house and only connected the line up at the grey box.

The problem I see is that the 2 crimps are different.
