      Very Very quite phone line

      hello everyone, after moving my router to my spare bedroom i noticed the bt nte5 socket wasnt connected at the other phone line box( old skool one) in my bedroom which is then in turn connected to the nte5 master box in the living room, so i thought it was a good idea to connect the cables at the back to the 2,4 and 5 connectins in the bedroom socket which already had cables connected to the master box i think, i.e two cables now sharing one terminal, so the question is that the reason why the phone line has gone a little fuzzy and very quite? if so how could i fix this problem?

      many thanks for any advice
      cheers brendan

      Re: Very Very quite phone line

      you should oly have cables 2 and 5 connected
      2= blue
      5= blue/white

      because the other wire is usually the ring wire, this disturbs the broadband signal and its always reccommended to only have 2 and 5 connected.

      but from the above im a bit confused about your sockets, the oytside line should connect to your master socket, then extensions from the push in idc terminals on the faceplate.

      can you tell us a it more clearly how your sockets are laid out

      Anybody outside Ireland who understands this, please stand up.

      Seriously, you will have to explain your situation a bit better. How many NTE5 sockets do you have? Pictures of each socket showing the wiring would be a help. It sounds like you have crossed the lines somewhere.

      You may still want to clarify the setup as moving the router onto an extension is never a good idea normally.

      am i right in thinking that having 2+ master sockets is not a good idea?
