Do you have the CAT5e cable and a RJ45 socket ready to go? You could run this temp through a window.

Yes, I have a cat5e and a rj45 socket to test if it works. what I am worried about it, if you do the set up as you mentioned above:

 

Orange (splitter) -> yellow (on black cable)
Orange/white (splitter) -> black (on black cable)

 

Green (splitter) -> via your CAT5e to xDSL socket
Green/white (splitter) -> via your CAT5e to xDSL socket

 

Blue (splitter) -> blue (on newer black cable)
Blue/white (splitter) -> white (on newer black cable)

 

 

 

Since this isnt connecting anything to the White core cable which ends up connecting for phones/dsl, will the phones will work after this? considering everything is connected to the white cable inside.

The white cable had white/red in use?? That was suppose to be your dedicated xDSL jack-point, but I'm guessing is wasn't dedicated. Any other pairs in that white cable used? I suggest connect the blue pair of filter to both the newer black cable blue/white and the white cable white/red. Green pair of filter to via CAT5e to your new RJ45 - punch down on blue pair in RG45 socket.

 yep, the one jack point i was using for the router has red/white wires connected from the white cable. One downstairs also uses red/white but it's the socket is connected with 2 white cables: so, 2 red's and 2 whites connected into the socket each from individual white cable. The other phone jacks uses either orange/white, orange/black - all coming from the white cable. The orange/white cable connected works when connected to the phone. It doesnt work with a router. Not sure how that works considering only the red/white is connected in the ETP to the filter. Must be interconnected somehow, not sure on the logic.

 

I'l have a go at it tonight once everyone is in bed and let you know. People are annoyed that the internet hasnt been functional well :P

 

 

 

Thank you

oh one more thing about the rj45 socket. So I punch down the green, green/white wire from the cat5e into the blue of the socket? And not the entire wire into all the different socket pairs?

 Punch down all four pairs in their correct colours, then use the blue pair at the other end of the cable.

RunningMan:

There is no "standard" way of doing it. My preference is using the green pair of CAT5e for the xDSL from splitter, punched done on blue, then I usually feed the blue pair with the phone side of splitter to separate jack-point or leave it for future use.
Main thing though is getting the splitter xDSL side to the blue punch-down, over a pair of good quality CAT3 or CAT5e cable.

 

NB: it goes to the blue punch doe on the RJ45 as these are the centre pins for connection of RJ11/12/45 cable to modem.

my god. what a joke. I tried rearranging the wires as you mentioned to me coffeebaron. and it didnt work. afterwards I put the wires back to what it was like before, and nothing was functional.

 

I ve rearranged the wires with the gel crimp so many times the wires are messed up. I wasnt sure which one was messed up, so after many trial and errors, and after hours, figured it out. I couldnt get rid of the insulation of the main cable to expose the wire because it was already so short in the first place. Turns out the white cable (red wire) the copper wiring was cut off from inside, so I had to extend it by cutting/joining it with a spare wire.

 

Should hire someone to do this if you are a noob at this.

 

I am going to buy more SMALLER gel crimps tomorrow and try to extend the wires considering most of the wires are now so short its hard to work with, and retry connecting the wires like you said.  ETP is currently so fat now which the filter and numerous wires that its hard to fit everything inside.

I'm still convinced that yellow/black is your lead-in, as it stop working when black wire broke. One of these things that is differcult to troubleshoot over a forum, as usually I can quite quickly put the test tools on and work out where everything goes.
I suggest extend the yellow/black as you plan. Put an RJ45 on it and with no other wiring connected, run cable through window to modem and see if you get sync. That will prove that is the lead-in. Make sure you extend enough to allow cutting back a few times.
Tight boxes these, made long before the broadband days.

You're right coffee. I ve connect the orange/white to the yellow/black and withe the cat5e attached to the green/rj45 socket, the broadband is fastest its ever been. I disconnected the cat5e cable as I havent bought a long enough wire to get it into the house, and connected the rest of the blue/white wires from the splitter to the black/white cables in the ETP like you said. Unfortunately after connecting the

 

Blue (splitter) -> blue (on newer black cable) + White (White cable)
Blue/white (splitter) -> white (on newer black cable) + Red (white cable)

 

The phone worked but the dsl wouldnt connect. The internet wouldnt even connect through the phone jack line (which was originally how it was setup). Currently I ve disconnected the blue+white line from the spiltter as I dont need the phone lines during the weekend.

 

I am guessing the wiring might be possibly incorrect?

 

The original wiring before I started this whole thing was (which worked well except it was an old splitter with 2 pairs of wiring [no green pair]:

 

Orange (splitter) -> Black (black cable) + White (white cable)
Orange/white (splitter) -> Yellow (black cable) + Red (white cable)

 

Blue -> Blue (Black cable)
Blue/white-> White (Black Cable).

 

Should I have a go at this combination?
