Hi I have read most of the previous posts on master filters and have decided to install my own after having no luck getting my ISP to send someone to do it.
So I understand that the Orange/white goes to line in and the Gr/Wh to modem and Bl/Wh to phone.
But when I opened my ETP this morning I found the incoming line was on the Red/Black pair and the red was connected to the white house line and black to blue with a capacitor in between.
My questions does the capacitor go on the phone side of the filter?
And does the orange go to black and white to red on the master filter?.
I am semi rural and will never get fibre, I am installing the master filter to try and stop the random disconnects we have all the time. BTW we hsve naked Broadband.



Thanks
Aaron

If you have naked broadband does your internal wiring consist of only 1 jackpoint that the modem is plugged into? If so there is nothing for the master filter to isolate.

 

The Capacitor is probably a test termination ie a capacitor in series with a 470k ohm resistor. Likely to be doing nothing either good or bad now.

thats not a capacitor thats a gel crimp connector.

 

if you have naked broadband you shouldnt need a master filter, just make sure there is only a single cable from the in coming pair to were your VDSL jack is. any other cabling should be disconnected.

Top picture has a test node, ie cap in series with a 470k resistor this should be removed.

As others have said if it's a naked connection then a filter is not required, but is there an alarm across the line?

Also you need to trace where the line goes within the house and remove any Ys or splits and create as direct a line as possible, it's OK to use existing outlets as joints as long as the line does not tee off to an unused outlet.

Thanks for the replys.
The internal wiring is rubbish, with a couple of tees spliced in along the line to the main plug (And run down the same internal holes in the wall as a mains cable!). What i was going to do was run a new cat5e cable to our office with a RJ45 on the wall. Maybe I should just disconnect the old wiring and do that

That's all you need to do - run a cat5 from the single modem outlet back to the ETP, and connect that line in place of all the junk that is connected. No master filter needed then.
