    Hi,

    I was wondering where I can get a ADSL/Master Socket Wall Plate from?

    I've looked at Maplin but they are wanting £11.99p plus postage.

    Does anyone know where I can get one from?

    TIA.

    If things are running OK now - why would you want one?

    If you send me a tenner I can send you instructions on how to make one
    out of an old 8 track tape machine, a can of sardines and some belly
    button fluff.

    Personally I would not spend less than £16.38 + postage and here is a
    good place to do it:

    http://clarity.it/acatalog/ADSL_Installation.html

    Make a choice at the start: a lifetime of hassle and expense or just
    buy some decent kit. If you can't afford it, get a second paper round.
    Grrrrrrr!

    Because they allow you to filter your entire phone system for telephone
    connection etc at the master socket without the need for any further
    filters.

    £6.50 is too cheap - it's like paying £0.99 for a wall filter - too
    hit and miss. It might work for a while but it WILL go wrong and it
    won't give you the performance of a quality piece of kit.

    Click on the above link and look at the block diagram they have posted.
    To get something so simple that wrong should start the alarm bells
    ringing.

    Clarity is tried and tested gear. May not be in stock but worth the
    wait.

    If you can't wait, the identical product is available from CPC.

  15. In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    How do you know - there's precious little technical inf on the CPC site? Can
    you wire a digital extension into the *back* of this, as with the modified
    Clarity unit?

    I wasn't talking about the modified Clarity unit, just the standard one.

  17. In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    In that case, they're available from lots of places, Solwise being as good
    as anybody.
