OK, so I need to find the DMARC point and buy some CAT5e cable (without plugs on the ends) and join that onto onto the CAT5e cable with the gel joiners. On the other end of the CAT5e I need to put an RJ11 plug (using the same 2 wires as I joined onto the two wires at the DMARC), so that can plug directly into the router?
1.) Have I got the right idea above?
2.) Where do I get gel filled joiners from?
3.) The router is safe to be plugged into the raw lines from the demarc point, no filters or anything else (there is a yellow cylinder thing on the back of some of my jack boxes - are they not important?)
4.) which two "pins" on the RJ11 do I use to join the two wires on the CAT5e cable?
I take it we want to eliminate as many plugs/joins/cables etc between the DMARC and the router, and thats why we are not putting a BT plug on the end of the CAT5e and plugging that into the DMARC box?
I hope you don't mind all these questions!!!!
Yea, you have the general idea. "router plugged into raw lines" - that's basically what you want to achieve.
Using the CAT5e cable, hook up the blue pair to incoming Telecom line pair at demarc.
Get a CAT5e socket, hook other end of cable up to this, again on the blue pair - socket will be colour coded.
Get a RJ11/12 - RJ45 lead.
RJ45 end into CAT5e socket, RJ11/12 end into ADSL router.
