    Well my modified BT ADSL faceplate has finally arrived from clarity,
    but I need help to wire it up. I'm ok at the faceplate end, Wires
    2,3,4 & 5 are self explanitory. I intend to use the other two wires (1
    & 6) to push ADSL around the rest of the house using the A & B
    terminals. I have also bought an ADSL plate for the phone socket by
    the computer. Here is where I need confirmation. Clarity say on their
    site to wire up the two blue terminals of the ADSL plate (sticker says
    586B and they are labelled Blue1 & Blue/White1). Is this correct? Does
    it matter which way round they are connected (ie A could go to either
    blue1 or blue/white1 or must A go to blue1).

    TIA for any help,
    db.

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    The ADSL signal isn't polarity conscious - so it doesn't matter which way
    round it's wired. What *does* matter though is that it's presented on the
    middle 2 pins of the outlet socket. So on RJ11 (6 pins) you use 3&4 and on
    RJ45 (8 pins) you use 4&5. [I don't know whether your faceplate has an RJ11
    or RJ45 outlet - but it doesn't matter as long as you use the right pins -
    the RJ11 plug on your modem lead will fit either type of socket].

    Chuffing hell Tim, you'll have Mark and Bob telling you you're a
    heretic. 2 wires? How dare you fly in the face of convention? 4
    connections on a RJ11 so you'd better well wire em all up. Didn't you
    know that the ADSL modem won't ring without the third wire hooked up?
    :p

  4. it would make sense to stick to a convention so that all the sockets
    have the A wire on the pin to the left of centre and the B wire on the
    other side (or vice versa).
