Hi,

Would appreciate some quick advice from the network installers. I am helping a friend to install a master splitter for his ADSL2+ connection. Can I terminate the DSL wires onto this jack with a capacitor in the circuit to use for the DSL modem? I was wanting to keep it tidy with a PDL faceplate.

Thanks

Peter

Yes you can.  Just make sure that you use dedicated pair from the POE (point of entry) to the new xdsl jackpoint.

By the way, the capacitor in the jackpoint is for the ringing circuit on the new "2 wire" jackpoints, it won't have any effect on the dsl for your install.

If that's what you have it will work. The capacitor will not be in circuit. Alternatively you can get RJ45 jacks that fit the same face plate.

As above, no issue - was using one of these modules for a DSL jack at one stage myself.

I'd go for a straight RJ45 socket. Those capacitors can fail, which means one extra thing that could cause potential DSL issues. It's also likely to be an old socket as all the new ones have long since dropped the capacitor. If you are doing a master splitter install, don't muck around using second hand parts.

How do you connect a typical modem into an RJ45 socket? They all seem to have either a BT connection or an RJ-11 connection. Do you have to get some sort of adaptor cable?

You can buy RJ45 to BT adapters or get a RJ11 to RJ45 line cord, but in reality you won't have any issues with that PDL JP, I've been doing faults and provisioning of POT's lines for over 20 years for Telecom/Chorus and they don't fail enough to even worry about.  I have had a large number of master splitters failing lately (especially the "hollow" type), I would focus on getting a quality one of those first, make sure it feels heavy not light/hollow.

Punch down down on blue. Just use a RJ-11 or RJ-12 cable to connect to modem. This can damage outer pins on RJ-45 socket, but since it is dedicated for DSL it's not an issue.

You can also get RJ45-RJ12 cables from www.cablesdirect.co.nz if you want to be a little fancier :)
