      ADSL extension from NTE 2005e master plate

      I intend to run an ADSL cable from my BT master (which has the ADSL nation faceplate fitted ) to another room so that I can place my router next to the PC. distance is approx 20 meters.
      I dont have any extenstion boxes in the house, just a nice new BT master
      A few of questions that i need to be sure of before i start....

      1. What is the best cable option, I see shielded highspeep adsl, I see Cat 5 e and CW1008 ?. off course I don't want to loose any performance


      2. Should I plug directly into the adsl port on the faceplate or hardwire into A & B inside on the faceplate?

      3. Can I buy the cable not terminated and add the connectors myself as these will interfere runing through a couple of small holes?

      4. This line is soley for my BB , can you advise what wires in the prefered cable I should be terminating?

      P.S I know i could use home plugs , but want to have hard wiring in place,

      Cat5e will be fine.

      A&B in the faceplate

      Any of the pairs will do just make sure you dont mix them up at either end

      Re: ADSL extension from NTE 2005e master plate

      I would suggest that rather than putting an RJ11 connector on the end you simply use the bare cable and put a filtered telephone socket on the end because standard CW1308 or CAT5 cable is solid core that should be installed in a permanent way. Flexing that would occur to the end of the cable each time your modem gets moved would eventually cause the wire to break.

      So if you connect the extension wire to the IDC terminals on the rear and then terminate with a filtered socket then you would use a short ready made flexible RJ11 cable to connect your modem to the ADSL out let and have a spare phone connector should you at any time want to connect a phone, dial-up modem, sky box etc to it.

      Re: ADSL extension from NTE 2005e master plate

      Thanks all, so just to confirm as I am new to all this

      Use Cat 5 instead of any of the listed high speed ADSL cable I have seen, connect to the master BT via the ADSL nation faceplate behind at the A&B connectors.
      Then run the cable to a filtered phone socket, -
      I have a spare master socket that NTL left behind, could I use this and add a ADSL nation 2005 faceplate to it wire the Cat 5 cable to the A& B then run a short flexi adsl cable to the modem ?
      Does it matter that I will have 2 filters , one at the master and one at the modem end ?

      Yes that should be fine, tho you wont need filters if using filtered faceplates.

      Yes, by connecting your extension to the A&B terminals on your XTE-2005 the extension will carry the unfiltered signal containing both ADSL & Voice signals.

      You could use the NTL master socket if you like but I wouldn't bother fitting an XTE-2005 to an extension. The point of a filtered faceplate is to allow you to fit a filter to your master while staying within the terms and conditions of supply. It is an unnecessary expense for an extension, instead you could use an XTF socket that is the complete box and costs less than a master faceplate. Having 2 filters is fine as the first one is effectively being bypassed.
