      from my knowledge of this type of wiring i would say its deffo interior grade cable, that goes back outside down to the master that is in 3rd pic, in the living room! Which the router is plugged into *sigh

      I would look for a way of re-running that extension internally using new cable from your new faceplate... You will be flying soon!

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      So your re-fit boils down to this.
      (1) fit NETE-5 master and filter faceplate.

      (2) place router close to master and connect to filter with a nice short twisted pair cable.

      (3) connect router to PC with network cat5.

      (4) re-wire extensions to faceplate filter and replace wireing as necessary.

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      i wasnt thinking to connect them, as they are just coiled in the junction box now, cheers for the heads up though brian. Just waiting on the new NTE-5 box now then would it be a good idea to get one of these..

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      yes, thats what i've got planned brian, and the router can be right at the side of the new (when installed) NTE-5 master as i've just wired in a new socket close by recently, and yes the new internal extensions should be a doddle as i have no carpets in at mo - decorating where the junction box is!

      what do you suggest? am presuming the adsl cable sent with the netgear is inferior? it is a flat cable.

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      I always make my own. I use a pair removed from cat5, with a RJ11 (centre pair) on one end, and as you will be using a filter faceplate, an RJ45 ( 4 and 5 centre pair) on the other.

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      will this stuff be a good idea then with it being shielded also?

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      Yes that is nice cable. For the filter to router, I remove a single twisted pair (convention says the blue pair, but any will do). Trying to fit the whole cable in an RJ11 would be diffcuilt to say the least!.
      So my router to filter is RJ11> single twisted pair> RJ45.
      You could slip some sleeving over the pair if you want, and you need to pad out the pair for the cable grip of the RJ45 to work.

      The shielding is probably overkill and a bit suspect in my view. Cat5 cables shouldn't need additional shielding due to the twisting arrangement. As Brian says it doesn't matter which colour pair you use but you do need to ensure it is a pair i.e. don't use two different colours.

      I'd be more worried by the fact that the cable you linked to has solid wires. These will give the best performance but only if the cable isn't subject to much movement. For making up a router cable, stranded wire is probably better as it is flexible and will stand being moved around.
