In the previous room I was able to run my Internet connection plus my telephone and fax (it is a printer/fax/scanner). In the 'new' room if my Internet connection is working I can not use my telephone and fax at the same time. If I my telephone and fax are working then I can not get my Internet connection.
I can only get the Internet (or alternatively, the phone and fax) working, by running the cable from the 'ADSL' point on the Telecom filter to the relevant appliance. Running the cable from the 'Phone' point on the filter to any of the appliances does not work
I have tried numerous spare filters and telephone cables but this has not worked so that can not be the problem.
I am now beginning to wonder if this has something to do with the telecom cabling as they are different in each room.
The telephone cable going into the room that I previously used has two white plus one red and one blue covered wires. Unfortunately I removed the wiring from this jack point as this cable is not required and made a mess of the room but by the way the wires are intertwined it looks like one white plus the red one went in one slot and the other white plus the blue one went into another. The cable is now neatly hidden from view.
The telephone cable going into the room I am now using has the following wires and connections into the jack point:
- two reds going in to slot number 2;
- two blues going into slot number 3, and;
- two whites going into slot number 5.
- a third white, which is not connected to anything
