Ok Let me try this step by step.
The box that is attached to the wall is the master socket. The bit you unscrewed to access the test socket is the faceplate. The faceplate I linked to is just a replacement for the bit you currently have removed. Once installed you no longer need to connect a filter as the faceplate includes one.
The only time you would need to do any wiring is if when you originally removed the faceplate there were any wires attached to the back of the bit you removed.
does that make sense?

ok makes sense.... soorry for being a thicko
were i was getting confused was, i only removed the bottom half of the face plate, and the link you gave is the 'whole plate' so that means iv now gota also remove the top half of my face plate and then install the NTE.
if thats right, i understand everything.
p.s: im plugged into the test socket, my speed is slightly slower, can you recommend any tweeks to improve speed? my MTU is 1350 was recommended by sky tech, that was when i had a unstable link. do you think i should call them to see if they have capped my speed. im only getting 3330 kpbs and im on max

Looking at your stats if you are capped, it may be best to keep it that way. If your noise margin gets much lower you may begin to experience drop outs. Also your speed is not too bad considering your attenuation.

in the evening it gets to 6.4 or lower. iv done speed tests and it shows 3400max
i was thinking maybe in the test line i would have any drop outs.
p.s: what do you recommend xte or nte?
- 27-10-06, 04:23 PM #18
