      The best thing to do would be to run a new length of external cw1308 from the box near the gutter (you'ill need some jelly crimps no doubt) directly to where you want the master to be, and then connect directly to the NTE-5 master. That way you'll cut out any unnecessary joint in the run.

      I have bought a junction box and more wire to extend it as well but the dodgy connectors concern me a little
      What kind of wire did you get? If it is not external cw1308 as Brian suggests, keep it for your internal extensions and get some. It would be better to leave the box under the gutter in place and run the external cable from there. You can use external cable inside, but it is not advisable to use internal cable outside.

      Re: What can I do?

      I bought just internal wire as I was going to put a junction box on the 2 cables inside until I found the shocking join.

      I will try and take some pictures tonight (if I can get a good one in the rain) to post up.

      What sort of connection will the bit be on the gutter?

      Take a look at these:

      This is on the gutter (excuse the guttering, it is due to be replaced)



      This is the little 3M box with a phone symbol on it:



      And this is the connection



      How hard would it be to run a cable from the guttering? Also how much would I expect to pay somebody out of the paper?

      OK, ideally you want to replace that horrible cable back up to the box by the gutter, as Brian says you will most probably require gel crimps to join the new external cable to the BT drop cable. As the existing cable is old and not twisted pair it won't help ADSL performance. Do you have ladders?

      Re: What can I do?

      Just had another look at your pics, is there even a junction box at the gutter? I can't see anything?? What you ideally want is a BT16 junction box.

      Re: What can I do?

      The OP prob means that in-line coupler Dave, they are used a lot when an overhead line is replaced maybe after a pole change and the new overhead is just connected to the existing drop down the wall. or to the internal wiring if the customer is not in at the time. As you say, new junction at the gutter, new drop to where required, job done. If there is in fact no junction at the gutter now, then it is just a matter of re-crimping a new line at that coupler.

      Hopefully that join is a good sign as the overhead to the pole is likely to have been changed like you say? In which case new junction & away we go

      Although looking again if the drop cable has been replaced there must be a join somwhere by the gutter as it is still the oval style cable both sides of the join(3M)?? (& BT never use that for overhead anyway surely??)
