      Engineer Required.

      Hello there.

      I've just had a phone line connected. Open reach only connected the master socket and I want to get the other 3 other sockets working,

      It looks like the pre-wiring has already been done and that I just need to connect the wires in haging out of the master socket.

      I'm sure I could easily do this but would prefer an engineer do it. How much do you think this would cost? I live in Bow, London.

      Cheers

      Ian

      I would guess 100 plus. Has Openreach fitted an NTE5 linebox, one like this - How to test your ADSL in the Master Test Socket if so it if very easy and provided your other sockets have been wired correctly, can be done in about 5 minutes.

      Easy to DIY, if you can wire a plug you can do this! All you need is an IDC tool, although consider an ADSL faceplate too depending on where you plan to plug the router in?
