I've looked and looked, but can't see a socket fed by the solid white wire. They all look white with a blue stripe to me. Can you clarify, using the "F" number ?

The gray cable coming into the house, has blue a solid blue wire, and a white with blue stripe http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5573979477... shows the stripe on the white wire.

The key is finding out which socket these two wires from outside go to on the inside and then fitting an appropriate socket there, and then wiring the extensions from this.

The original poster is close enough that if willing to accept a visitor on Saturday I can visit and see if we can figure this out, and then get you to order the appropriate bits to sort everything out. In the hope it does fix the speed issues.

And extremely generous.

I wonder whether it qualifies for tea and biscuits, perhaps even fig biscuits, or whether it would warrant chocolate cake?

Andrew.... That would be brilliant. But sadly and somewhat unbelievably some toerag has stolen the copper cable leaving half the village without phone and internet!!! I have heard that this should be fixed by Monday but I am assuming that it will be difficult to fix my problems without phone/internet.......

Am I right?

Cheers

if your phone works then you aren't affected by the theft, and thus no problem fixing this.

The wiring could be resolved without the line actually working, but it would be better to do it when it is working so that any work can be tested before leaving.

Nothing works at the moment. BT are just saying the std 3 working days at the moment so unlikely to be sorted before the weekend.

Still, at least the scroats were caught!

If you would prefer to leave it till the line is fixed that is fine. I am just very grateful for the offer and will have tea and biccies on tap smile

Once everything is sorted out then email me [email protected] and include a link back to this thread to jog my memory.

Will have a rummage and see what old socketry I have lying around too, usually a few little bits and pieces
