      Filtered faceplate query

      I have bought a filtered faceplate, one of those from ADSL Nation.

      I would like to fit this to the master socket of course, and use the ADSL (B+A) connectors so I can have a filtered ADSL extension upstairs.

      I took the existing plate off, and I have 2 sets of wires in each 2 + 5, how can I decipher which pair go in the phone, and which pair go in the B+A ?

      If I can't get this to work, my other option is to resite the router to the master socket which is downstairs, so just put both pairs of wires in 2+5, then use a pair of homeplugs to network the signal back to my upstairs PC.

      Any thoughts?

      Re: Filtered faceplate query

      If you have an NTE5 faceplate, the main incoming wires should be connected to the AB terminals on the inner faceplate and wires going to your extensions should be on the 2 and 5 terminals of the front faceplate. If this is how yours is, the only way to find out what goes where is to remove one of the wires from the faceplate and see which extension goes dead.

      As to your query I assume you mean the AB terminals on the faceplate, if this is so:
      2 goes to B
      5 goes to A
      The opposite of what you might think but you can never do anything simple can you!

      Re: Filtered faceplate query

      Just to clarify things......

      A filtered faceplate will not 'filter' the upstairs ADSL connection - it doesn't need filtering. The A & B connectors on the faceplate are straight through. The only thing that the filtered faceplate will do is to remove the need to take off the bell wire, which you can connect on your filtered (phone) connections.

      By far the best way of doing things is to connect the ADSL router to the ADSL output on the master socket with as short a run of cable as possible, and run Cat5e cable from the router to your computer(s). Connect all the other sockets in the house to the filtered outputs on the faceplate (2, 3 & 5).

      To recap: A & B are straight-through connections, no filtering at all.
      The outputs marked 2 through 5 are FILTERED outputs for PHONES.
