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.

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?
