      ADSL Nation Faceplate Installation Help?

      As advised on this forum I have just received my new faceplate.

      I removed my existing faceplace (new house so 12 month Old) to uncover the following four wires in related numbered sockets:-

      2 - Solid Blue Wire.
      3 - Solid Orange Wire
      4 - Solid White Wire with Orange 'Bits'.
      5 - Solid White Wire with Blue 'Bits'.

      How does this transfer to my new faceplate with the following inputs:-


      ADSL

      B - ?
      A - ?

      PHONE

      5 - ?
      3 - ?
      2 - ?

      Any assistance would be appreciated. Wires are not my strong point!

      I cant remember the answer, but if you got it from ADSLNation then it would have come with a little bit of paper that tells you which wire goes where.

      2 to 2 3 to 3 5 to 5 ignore the wire on 4 just push it to the back of the box.
      A and B are for adsl extensions, as per the instructions.

      Re: ADSL Nation Faceplate Installation Help?

      So what is the wire on 4 for? (Are you saying it doesnt do anything?).

      NB - I do have an addtional socket in my living room (which sky is plugged into) which was linked up by the engineer when I moved into house. Could it be anything to do with this?

      Just thought Id check!

      okay, the faceplate splits out the broadband signal from the phone signal.

      If A+B is left unconnected, then there will be no broadband signal on any of the extension phone sockets and thus the router must be placed next to the master socket.

      If you want to have broadband available on the other sockets, then you need to have connections to A+B.

      In a domestic phone set-up 4 does nothing, it is used (sometimes) on private exchanges.
      Part of the function of a faceplate filter is to prevent interferance from your internal wiring from getting to the ADSL signal, so the ADSL signal is only avaliable at the socket on the faceplate. The A and B connections allow you to run an extension just for the router

      Re: ADSL Nation Faceplate Installation Help?

      I have managed to find time to fit my faceplate. I have connected as per Brian69 Instructions below:-

      2 to 2 3 to 3 5 to 5 ignore the wire on 4 just push it to the back of the box.
      A and B are for adsl extensions.

      Everything looked good and phone and Broadband seemed to be working. However ...... Ive lost my line in living room where SkyTV was connected. Did a line test via sky box and got a message saying "Telephone Line not connected".

      mmm Are we use that the wire4 is redundant? Any help appreciated.

      It should be redundant, but if your extension was done by a DIYer, it may be wired incorrectly. The easiest way is to remove the faceplate of the extension and note which coloured wires have been used and where. You can correct them to be the same as the Master or change the master to suit. Whichever you think easiest.

      This is my fault, I should have got you to check everything was working before you started. Are you sure the phone line is pluged into the box?
