no connections mastersocket
Hi just took the front section of my master socket off and there are no wires/cables going into numbers 2 and 5. Don't understand this stuff, but I thought the norm was that cables were supposed to go into these. Would that effect my broadband connection?
Also, if I decided to fit an ADSL Nation faceplate would I have to connect some wires into these to get it working properly?

Thanks Wheelie - read that but still don't understand.
From that I gather I should have cables connected to terminals 2 and 5 on the ADSL Nation faceplate. However, that presupposes the wires were connected to the front section of your NTE-5 in the first place, so you know what wires should go into the terminals and can actually access those wires. In my mastersocket there are wires at the back in a loop and I think they are going into another connection. Am I supposed to get two of these (the correct colours) and connect them into the terminals 2 and 5.
Also, do you just leave the A and B ADSL terminals empty?

If all you want to do is use the phone and ADSL sockets on the front of your new face plate, you don't need to do any wiring - just plugging it in is enough (you are connecting to the BT side of your line via the BT-style plug on the back of the face plate).
Should you wish to wire extensions in future, use the 2/3/4/5 connections for voice-only extensions and A/B for unfiltered (ADSL) output.
If that doesn't answer your question let me know exactly what set up you are aiming for in terms of phone & ADSL connections and I'll help you out.

The connection Krone strip in the face plate are for wiring in EXTENSIONS to other sockets in the house.By removing the rear of the master socket you are effectivly breaking the law & the T&C's of the service provider.
That's why the NTE-5's were introduced in the first place,so DIY'ers could connect their own extensions without interfearing with the BT network.

Hope this explains it.
