      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      Dont know if this helps, saw it on anoyjer board... the test has been carried out here: Samknows Broadband - Availability checker

      Broadband Availability Checker
      Summary
      BT ADSL
      BT SDSL
      LLU xDSL
      Cable
      Wireless
      21CN
      Locality
      Check again BT ADSL broadband availability
      You are connected to the Ecclesfield telephone exchange.

      ADSL is available in your area
      Your exchange is also enabled for ADSL Max services

      According to BT Wholesale, your phone line should be able to support a 3.5Mbps or greater ADSL connection via ADSL Max.

      Standard ADSL RAG results:
      You can receive 2Mbps ADSL
      You can receive 1Mbps ADSL
      You can receive 512Kbps ADSL
      You can receive 256Kbps ADSL

      You are approximately 1.83km from the exchange (straight line distance).

      However, there is another service on your phone line (e.g. ADSL, LLU, DACS, etc) that would prevent you from ordering a new ADSL connection.



      Your BT ADSL code is: GEGEGEC
      Matched result using the phone you provided

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      Hi STL
      When you get your new master, you will not have any problems. You connect the orange and white wires which are at present connected to A and B of the junction box, to A and B of the new master. If you have also ordered a filter faceplate, then you connect the extensions to the numbered terminals on it 2 to 2 3 to 3 5 to 5.
      Do not forget that you will need an IDC insertion tool. They are very cheap and you should buy yourself a couple at a shop which sells extension bits

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      My only concern Brian is the lack of cable that has been allowed through the wooden framework, as you can see it is bare strands, and no isulated outer jacket that is present, will this not make it tight for fitting a master type socket now?

      cheers

      Hi Lee.
      Yes it will be tight and you will have to be carefull, but it's not impossible.

      If you disconnect the orange/white wire on terminal 3 of the master socket in picture 3 of your current setup, you may see an immediate improvement. It looks like this ring wire goes back to the junction box then on to the other extension and may be acting as a long aerial for picking up noise.

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      i can confirm that only white with orange are connected at junction box and also at the faceplate, if that makes sense, in the junction box pic, the orange with white are just not in use, so uncoiled them out of way for clarity??? But if i've misunderstood you then please say

      Re: Attenuation/ downstream low

      ^^^ Yes, you are right. The wire that can be disconnected from terminal 3 is white/orange. That is the one which may be slowing your connection and is probably acting as a noise aerial.

      You may need to reconnect it to your filtered faceplate for your voice extensions to ring properly but currently your ADSL filters should be doing its job and you can safely disconnect it.
