      No, if he connected the incomming line to the IDC connectors on the ADSL faceplate then the BB socket on the front would not work. Extensions would as they would be unfiltered.

      Re: BT fitted me a nice new NTE well happy

      I see so he definatly connected to A+B then as the BB is working from that socket its just i dont remember seeing him do it thats what made me think thats all. I could always take the filter off and look myself i guess. Are the A+B sockets on these filters they are using screw downs or IDC as well?

      On a final note as there is an actual "test socket" now behind the filter i guess there would be no gain for me plugging into that rather than the adsl port on the front of the faceplate?

      Thanks again Runitdirect for your help much appricated

      The sockets should be all IDC now, screw was taken out of production ages ago. No point using the test socket at all, the filtered faceplate has in effect removed the extension wiring now which is what the test socket does.

      The whole idea of the 'Test Socket' is for testing purposes only. It is possible to damage it if you constantly use it, then you would likely have to wait for someone to replace the whole socket.

      The electronics in the filtered faceplate that you have are better that the electronics in the microfilters that Sky supplied you. This alone will improve your connection.

      So I would leave the filtered faceplate there if I were you.
