So my next project is replacing the master splitter. 

 

The current one has been in for the last 10 years- apparently pretty good mileage, especially as our power supply is rather "rural"

 

Here's the location. The splitter is sitting between the rows of connections in the top left

I have the replacement splitter. So once I've removed the old one I'll need to get one of those special plastic blade thingies to push the wires in to the slots right? ;) 

I'd be removing and replacing them one at a time so I put them in the right places

Can't tell from picture, but if fitting in between those rows, then I think ASDL1. Maybe chop out and bring for show n tell on Friday. I'm sure I could swap it for a new VDSL rated one if you haven't already got one :)

You will need a proper push-down tool - plastic ones tend to fail after about 2 connections.

 

Note that Cat 5 cable (which you probably have) requires a different tool than for Cat 6 cable.

Ho-key this is the filter thingy I have (I'm guessing I've been calling it the wrong thing)

 

This is the bit that is being replaced.

Yay!!! Almost small enough for a sit down dinner- should we bring salad? ;)

It was sitting under it, and the new one is sitting alongside the cabinet... there isn't room in there :)

 

I can take a photo of where it is if you like :D

An overall shot to see the whole cabinet in context.
