Update.
Solid connection with yellow-> 2 and black -> 5.
Have swapped out a couple of jacks. Think i buggered the original master jacks connectors. Currently connected to first slave.

Hi adding extra outlets beyond the master is not recommended without a master filter, but good to hear you have a stable connection.

You're on ADSL according to the router.

More likely the plug is a two wire BT to RJ11. In that case only terminating at 2&5 on the jackpoint will work. I've made this mistake now all my BT plugs are two pair. Saves headaches.

 

 

 

At the router end is the RJ11. If you unplug it are there one or two pairs?

It was only the original 3 wire BT sockets that had a connection to each of 6 contacts. With 2 wiring the wiring terminations changed to 3 commoned to 2 and 3 commoned to 5. If the other socket contacts were equipped they had no wiring access.

I raised that with my provider (Orcon) and was told that it was an error. I get roughly 10 down and 1 up when connected via ethernet but I thought I used to get more on ADSL tbh.

You are still on ADSL2+. Line is unsuitable for VDSL2 anyway.





Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone 6s, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then its data cabled.

Interesting that they are telling me I am getting VDSL and charging me for it. Might give them a call this afternoon. Anyway other than that screenshot that I can use as proof?

Hi, that screen shot should be adequate, but there is a further detailed page with all the line stats showing attenuation etc, that would be useful.

 

Dont belive ADSL and VDSL is charged any different, but some ISPs may differentiate

Can I take the cable that I have coming from the roadside and replace the BT sockets with RJ45 sockets? I dont ever plan on having a phone connected.

You can take the street cable directly to pins 4&5 (marked blue and blue/white on the socket) on an RJ45 Socket if you are never intending to connect a POTS phone line a filter is not required
