      New face plate & hardwired extension

      Just bought an ADSL Nation master faceplate, now some questions which have probably been asked before so apologies in advance!
      I have 2 hard wired extensions with 6 wires in the BT faceplate.
      I will be plugging the modem (when I get it) directly into the ADSL socket on the new faceplate.
      Question - do I double up the extension wires in the new socket in 2,3 & 5 or 1 in 2,3, & 5 & the other in the blue ADSL socket & use a filter on the extension?
      Hope this makes sense!
      Thanks

      Re: New face plate & hardwired extension

      Regarding your new ADSL nation master faceplate.

      All of the phone extensions that you have in the house are connected on the back of the faceplate on the phone side of the socket, leaving the ADSL side empty because you say you will be connecting the modem directly to the front of the faceplate. You can double the wires on the phone side or use connectors, this will leave only one wire on each terminal and would look tidy rather than lots of wires all connecting to the faceplate.

      Is the faceplate you bought a XTE 2005.

      Hope this helps, a little....

      Thanx for the reply Andy17.
      Yeh it's an XTE2005. What sort of connector do you get, does it go inside the faceplate?
      cheers

      I am not completely shore, but they are clear like square connectors that you crimp where the wires enter to make the connection. The ex-btengineer that i got in to do the work used these, so that you was left with just the three wires to connect to the phone side of the faceplate, they were the three wires that go to terimals 2,5 and 3, 3 being the ring wire that needs reconnecting, but will not cause a problem.

      I am not sure were he gets these connectors from, but it will not hurt connecting the extensions individually it will not make any difference.
