apologies if wrong section.

Just moved house, have adsl but only 1 of the 3 phone jacks work.  Is there any easy way for me to figure out if the other two phone jacks are on a seperate line or if the jacks are faulty.

I want to put the adsl modem in another room with one of the jacks that isn't working.  Would it be easier to just drill a hole in the floor and run a ethernet cable into said room where I want wired lan

Cheers.

If there is a dial tone then more likely there is a master splitter filter installed at demarcation point.

Call in a data cabling company or electrician to get it fixed.

Probably not. You might get disconnect tone.

Just give a local cabling company a call. Or if you are in Auckland PM coffeebaron on here.

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?
