      XTE2005 Dropwire no. 9 (Orange, White, Green & Black)

      Hi guys,

      As the subject suggests, I'm trying to connect the XTE-2005 onto to an NTE5 socket.

      But when I opened it up, there are four wires, coloured: orange, white, green & black. After doing some research I found that this was called BT Dropwire No. 9.

      The orange is currently connected to A on the NTE5 socket and the white to B on the NTE5 socket which leaves me to wonder where do I put the green and black, as there five pin locations on the XTE-2005:
      B
      A
      5
      3
      2

      With B & A going to ADSL and 5,3 & 2 going to the Phone.

      Im trying to connect the XTE 2005 to the NTE master socket so I can have a double pronged socket so adsl and phone rather than a filter hanging down.

      The picture below should clear it up:

      p.s. the pic http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4003/5123662333_53453... is an openreach master socket that was recently installed (legally) bout three days ago by a superfast bt openreach engineer.

      Kind Regards

      Daz

      Coil up the green and black wires into the back of the box.
      They aren't in use (they would be for a second phone line if you had one).

      Leave the orange and white wires where they are and put the back part of the NTE 5 back where you found it.

      Plug the XTE 2005 in place of the original front plate of the NTE 5.

      Plug phone into phone socket,router into ADSL socket.

      Job done.

      The 2-3-5 terminals on the XTE 2005 are for any telephone only extensions but your picture doesn't show you have any and you don't mention any.

      The A-B terminals on the XTE 2005 are for an unfiltered extension to allow you to have ADSL somewhere other than the master socket again not mentioned.
