      ADSL NTE-2005 Face Plate Help

      Hi I have Sky broadband and am currently, well was getting just over 4meg a second, this has since dropped to 3meg as there was a fault with the phone line over the weekend which BT have sorted but the Broadband speed hasnt returned to 4meg - Im on the case to Sky to sort this!

      I have been reading the post re the NTE-2005 filtered face plates, as I have just moved into a new build house and have the master socket with the BT Openreach logo and 3 extension sockets, one which is used for the Sky box, one which is used for the router and one that has nothing plugged into it. The phone is connected to the master socket.

      Im looking for some guidance and advice on how to fit a ADSL filtered face plate, am I correct in thinking that when I fit this, I will have the 2 extensions for phone + main socket and the 1 extension will be ADSL only? I also wont need any filtered plugged in? Can you also give me an idiots guide on how to cable the new master socket ie extension etc, and how to idenitify which extension is which, as Ive had a look behind the master socket at the test socket and cabling and there are 3 wiring connected to 2,3,5 and a couple of cables that are lose and not connected think they are orange/white and green/white.

      Any help greatly received!

      Hi can you post your router stats How to get your router statistics and then from the master socket How to test your ADSL in the Master Socket to see what the difference is between the two thats a good way to start to solve any problems

      If all the extensions wire back to the master then this is very easy, first(obviously!) you need an NTE-2005. If we look at the back you will see this :-



      Any extension that is for phone use ONLY connects to 2, 3 & 5 (4 does nothing but can be fitted for neatness), to check what colours go where it is safest to remove the faceplates off the extension sockets and note the wire colours, then simply replicate at the NTE-2005 end. Once wired any extension off these connections NO LONGER require ADSL filters.The extension that will have the modem/router on it (assuming you will not plug this into the master) connects to A & B. At the other end you have a choice of what to use, you could keep your existing secondary socket & use this converter or you could use this socket which then gives you the benefit of having a telephone AND router on that extension. The final choice is to use a plug in ADSL filter on a standard secondary socket.

      If you only have one wire going from the Master socket to your extensions, ie, they are 'daisy chained', it is still possible but a bit more complicated.

      Re: ADSL NTE-2005 Face Plate Help

      Hi Here are my stats from the master socket have tried in the test socket but the speed doesnt improve - has spoken to the sky CST team tonight and they have increased the speed back to where it was before the fault with my phone line.

      System Up Time: 5:11:27
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 41910 46528 0 0 0 5:07:27
      LAN 2431 0 0 0 0 5:11:27
      WLAN 50851 45893 0 0 0 5:11:00
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3840 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 56.0 db 31.5 db
      Noise Margin 7.1 db 22.0 db

      I have looked in the master socket, I have 3 extensions wired into the back and two spare cables green/white and orange/white what would these be for?

      Will I see any benefit in installing the new face plate, as the Sky CST team said that as I dont see any improvement in plugging the router directly into the test socket Im already getting the max speed for my line?

      Thanks for your help so far.

      Whatever you get from the test socket will be the max, the only benefit of a faceplate in that case is centralised filtering (no need for plug in filters).

      Here are my stats from the master socket have tried in the test socket but the speed doesnt improve
      Your speed will not improve as you are capped, what will improve is your other figures. Plug into the test socket and post your stats from there. 'Looking' at your wiring I will be very surprised if there is not an improvement.

      He might be, until you see the test socket stats we won't know, his NM could jump up and his sync speed stay low.
