      BLUE/white - 2
      ORANGE/white - 3
      WHITE/orange - 4
      WHITE/blue - 5

      Re: Another Faceplate Wiring Question

      I think there's a bit of confusion here about what the ADSLNation faceplate does. With a normal faceplate the master socket and all the extensions in the house have the normal telephone signal on them and the ADSL signal on them. That's why you have to use a microfilter (that splits the two signals) on every telephone and modem connection in the house.

      By contrast, the ADSLNation faceplate splits the two signals at the master socket. Any extension wired into terminals 2, 3, 4, and 5 will only have the telephone signal on them and you [b]won't[n] be able to use them for your router. But you can wire in an extension into terminals A and B on the back of the faceplate to create an ADSL extension, which you shouldn't have anything except a router connected to.

      If you have more than one extension connected in a daisy-chain configuration, then you'll need to put in a new wire specially for your router if you want the router to be plugged into anything other than the master socket.

      Also the advice about just wiring lines 2 and 5 doesn't apply when using a splitter faceplate like the ADSLNation one. You should use wire 3 as well, otherwise your extension telephones might not ring.

      THIS from ADSL Nation may be of some help. When I bought mine there was a leaflet like this packed with it, which made installation easy.
