In any event, the ringwire is likely to be orange with white rings - it will always be connected to terminal 3 in a NTE5 though.
      There is such a rule. If the wire connected to terminal three is not Orange/White, it does not comply to BT standard. I take your point that any dodgy extensions might not comply anyway.

      You got 3 right!

      yes - that's the point I was making. Standards aren't always followed, hence my reference to check the terminal number.

      I have two lines into the house and a couple of terminals in the NTE5s were bridged using several wire offcuts of orange white (they were fitted by a BT engineer 5 years ago).

      A friendly engineer I had round to fit a new filtered faceplate a few weeks ago couldn't work out why either.

      Hey All.

      Thanks for all the replies. I just got me XTE 2005, and plugged it up (I missed the ring wire cause reading on another link it said it still causes a slight interference, since i don't need it eitherway i left it out)
      Now the line attentuation of 42db went to 15.5 lol??? how does that work then?
      Im very very happy, but very confused, as i recall the line attenuation is due to the distance from the local exchange is it not?

      Eitherway i'll see how it runs, my disconnect problem got to the point that it went off every couple of mins, hopfully that will be fully cured!


      I'll let you know if anything else happens.
