Hi all

I am having some major home renovations done and as part of it I have had to get my patch panel moved.  The original instillation was done by coffee baron and worked fine.  Today the electrician moved the patch panel a few meters and reconnected the main line (didn't connect the other feeds but I can handle that) (sorry don't know the terminology)

However my internet connection doesn't seem to work.

The electrician says it has been reconnected as it was, but who knows, would anyone care to take a look?









and where the feed comes into the house and is joined to the cat 6 that connects to the patch panel

The Green/White wire at the back of the patch panel going into port 12 (for DSL), needs to be connected to the Blue/White terminals, not the Green/White terminal the way it is connected at present, connect the same way as the Blue/White wire is connected for your phone.  Should work then :)

correct, green from filter to blue punch down.

Haha big lols seeing this.... Tell your sparky it isn't colour by number haha.

Do you have two lines? I am trying to figure why you have something connected to the red/black on the service lead?

Your check your line is live on the white/blue of the black service lead, then check it is live on the other end of the Cat 6. Then connect it to your splitter.

If you haven't used the correct tool on your patch panel there is a relatively good chance the pins have been spread too far an they aren't cutting in to the insulation properly.

No, one line. Can it hurt having the red black connected?

My sparky was a bit embarrassed. When I told him I sorted it and what the issue was. He might be a new member :)

Can't remember if you were on naked dsl or not. Line won't necessarily show live if naked. As for the second line being connected; does that black cable go back further to an ETP? Possibly was line/VoIP re-inject.

Does the black cable in your picture carry on back further to a white box, or other cables?
