I live in a weak broadband signal area and my router only locks on to the signal when plugged directly into the master socket (after removing the faceplate). I was advised to get the XTE-2005 splitter which arrived today, and I am trying to wire it in. I have connected the BLUE/WHITE to socket 2 and the WHITE BLUE to socket 5. However when i plug in the standard microfilter (that came with the router) and test the connection, the router fails to lock onto the signal. Ive got a feeling im doing something wrong so any help would be greatly appreciated..!

okay thanks, I plugged the cable into the rj11, and discovered that the adsl works until i connect the extensions (2 and 3) It then goes back to saying "no signal" Perhaps i need a better router?

Sounds like you may have a problem with your extension wiring.
You may have got a short circuit, check if the extensions work with a phone.
You are wiring to pins 2 and 5 (Filtered)and NOT A&B(unfiltered) on the faceplate?
ADSL Nation site is down at the moment there is some info here which might help.

Yes i probably should have mentioned that im not using the router supplied as it could not obtain any signal at all even when connected to the test socket. I was told to try a different modem.. so i tried an old BTVoyager100 modem which is what im using now.. ill try to find the router stats..
Im really confused with it, surely the adsl signal is taken before the extensions come in so i dont see how they can be affecting it.
