Hi
I have installed a new master splitter and when I finally get it sorted then I will be running the orange/white pair that are carrying the ADSL out to a RJ45 jack point.
So which pins do the orange and white wires go to ?
Thanks
Richard

Pins 4 & 5 are always used for voice if you're using an RJ45.

It's not normal practice to have the 'ADSL' line going to a RJ45 socket.  It should go to a normal 2-wire Telecom socket.  While it is possible to use RJ45 you would then have to wire a special cable to the modem, or use an RJ45 to BT adapter.

The Orange/White pair is connected to the incoming line and also to the above socket. Label this "ADSL". Plug ADSL modem's line in into this plug.

The Blue/White pair goes out to all the other phone sockets in the house.  Make sure all sockets are '2-wire' and NOT the old 3-wire Master/Extension type.

Telecoms own standards now prefer that homes are wired with RJ45s not BT's, I currently have phone distribution equipment going through type approval all delivering RJ45s which after discussion with Telepermit staff was deemed their preference.

As sbiddle said earlier, the centre two pins are for voice/phone/adsl (Pins 4&5)

cyril7: centre pair always 4/5

Which is also the blue/blue-white colour coding on the RJ45 socket. Use one of these to plug into your router:

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
