    Urgent : BT faceplate wiring for ADSL

    Does anyone here have the old BT enginer installed ADSL ?

    Our socket was pulled off the shelf, and as a result, the wires ripped out inside. Now i have to rewire the blinking thing as all the phones are playing up.

    I need the pinouts / wire colours -> numbers. Any offers ?

    Thanks

    Not sure if this is any good, it was installed by BT a year or so ago when adsl was first available in this area. Only got two wires attached for the adsl bit.

    Thanks buddy, but does it have a voice socket on it to ?
    If so any chance you could grab the pin outs for that ?

    Thanks a lot !

    It has a voice socket yet, but those two wires are all thats connected. The voice socket is connected to that via a PCB.

    2 pins is all you need for single ADSL and voice. Its all done through a hybrid transformer!

    mate, all you need to do is wire in a standard phone socket and then go buy a microfilter, they are lik £6 and will do the same job as your old faceplate. BT will also sell you filters but iirc they are untested (i know i used to work there...) and a little bit more cash.

    We've been having major issues with the line lately.
    BT have basically had the "we have done the tests at our end, and its not our problem. We will come out and fix it, but your going to pay through your nose" attitude with us. Funny as this was a BT engineer install of ADSL
    Anyway, Ive done some rewiring and put a new master socket in (non ADSL, ill put the ADSL one back in, in a while - if the problems happen again, this is the culprit and ill ring BT to get them to replace it or just buy a new one for less hassle).
    The line seems to be fine now. The phones are ringing again, we have a dial tone, and the ADSL is back up.
    HOWEVER there is one problem left - we cant hang up. The phone line doesn't see when the phone is put down. You can hear a "click" on the other phone (my mobile in this case), but the line stays active. We have to wait for the other end to put their phone down before we can make calls again.

    Driving me a little crazy now.
    I'm wondering if its because the master socket isn't a ADSL one (hence no micro filter in it). Humm.... Any ideas ?

    Ahh, sounds like you've not quite wired the socket up properly, iirc a master socket should have more than just 2 wires..

    I'll see if I can dig out some info

    Yeah, when I did mine it used 4 wires.... not too many permutations of taht to get the right ones... except where youmake you phone ring continuosly (annoying) or where you accidentally dial a sex line in Brazil... (expensive)
