Back ground. The first time i shortend my phone line when i went to vfx on xnet, i didnt need a phone jack because its all done over broad band. so i decided i only needed one phone jack.
any way when doing so i found where all the telephone wires went and the were soldered together i couldnt believe my eyes. maby this is the way they use to do it i dont know. I proceeded to cut cut the line back at the first phone jack. in doing so i gained around an extra 1mb in sync speed went from a solid 5.2mb sync to 6.0 - 6.5mb sync speed down. yay for me. oh yea and i removed the ring wires maby that did it.
next question. i was thinking of moving the phone jack closer to where the phone cable comes up out of the ground under the house maby put the jack right over top of it. drill a hole in the floor and come up.
i will be removing about 15m of cable if i do so, its not going to be easy as i need to get under the house very tight. is it worth my while any body have an opinion.
is my understanding correct if i leave the current phone jack intact there would be no point because i would have just as much resistance on the phone line as if it was at the furtherest point in my house. so i should just cut the line alltogether and place a phone jack as close to the wire coming in as posible?
hopfully that made sense and you get the idea thanks for your thoughts.
