Hi, I am looking to install a DSL master filter purchased from trademe  see image below.  I am wanting to do this as currently there is no phone jack in my office and I might as well do a proper job and install a dedicated ADSL jack next to my Computer / Modem.



I have opened up the ETP on the outside of our house and I think I've figured out what I need to do but I would just like to double check before cutting and crimping any wires.

Here is a pic of the current ETP and what I am thinking is the correct installation of the DSL filter.  The ETP is not far from my office so I was thinking of running a new cat cable from the filter to the new ADSL jack. I have also purchased some Scotchlok crimps, should make it nice and easy. 



Basically just want to know if my wiring looks correct and if there's anything else I have overlooked?

Thanks.

looks fine

run a new cat 5/6 cable to where you want the jack to go then you can wire in a RJ45 plug and use a RJ45-RJ11 cable to the modem

You have Cat5e cabling in your home so why bother running a separate feed.

What you can do is utilise the second pair in the Cat5e to get the DSL to where you want it. Also you can ditch that little yellow test terminator. They are not required and just take up space which is at a premium when you add a splitter to the ETP.

Great Idea chevrolux about using the existing cable,  I guess that's why your the experts.

Obviousy you still need to make sure it is a "clean" pair from the ETP to your DSL jack so follow it around jack to jack making sure there are no stubs off it. Luckily if the second pair is used you have two more to pick from!
