Is there a best adsl&vdsl master filter to get?

Best could mean ease of install and maint also.

Pretty sure theres only one type of each on the market... and theres no real reason you would want to install an adsl master filter when it just makes sense to go all out and stick in a vdsl one.

The best option is really your only option - the MM3400 VDSL2 splitter. This is used in 99.9% of VDSL2 installs.

The old MM3200 is now obsolete, and was replaced by the MM3400 as the stock standard replacement about 3 or 4 years ago. For a while lots of the MM3200's were sold off really cheaply by somebody on Trademe who clearly had lots.

A couple of questions, where to buy one and how are they terminated?

Related to that - is there some kind of termination box available to bring it all together? The wires all over the place style of installation I would like to avoid and I maybe have some existing tidy up anyway.

Any electrical wholesaler will have them. You will need scotchlok connectors to connect the cabling.

Do you actually know what you're doing? Having to ask lots of questions probably means it's easier to get Chorus or a professional in to do it for a fixed price.

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=49&topicid=112849 this post should give you a good idea of what needs to be done.

If it looks out of your ability ild just ask someone else to do it rather than something going wrong and the panic of how to fix it!

Having to ask questions? It is the home & workshop forum ; ).

But yeah could be. Sometimes it's a case of diy to get exactly what you want vs spending exactly the same time hanging around etc.

If you would like to pm me, I can help you with as much information you need to complete the installation yourself. I do an average of x3 VDSL installs a day, so know my way around all sorts of homes and wiring.

Thanks for the offer much appreciated. Should be ok.

Btw all, my question about termination earlier might be better phrased as 'what connectors does that one have?'. Did some googling since then and I see it is wire termination. Thar might be the confusion..
