So I got a confirmation email today saying that the internet was good to go at our new place, so i thought sweet i'll hook it up tonight. First thing is to plug router in to the phone jack but it doesn't fit in.. is there different type of phone Jacks? Is it just a matter of purchasing a compatible cord?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You need to add a close square bracket ] at the end.

 It's called a BT jack. Standard in houses for years.

 

If your using ADSL, either use a filter with RJ11 on the back, or a BT to RJ11 cable.

VDSL as far as I'm aware they typically install a master filter and a separate jackpoint for the VDSL.

 

If you signed up for VDSL you might need to find out if there's a separate jackpoint somewhere in the house.

Generally VDSL is installed with a master filter and a dedicated RJ45 port for the DSL side.

 

 

 

With many providers now opting to not do filter installations by default, this is somewhat segmented.

 

Ultimately, VDSL, ADSL it does not matter. If you wish to have the best experience you should have a master filter installed.

That simply means your ISP has opted for no filter installation.

 

 

 

I personally would recommend you organize to have one done, However a simple BT -> RJ12 will be good

Thanks alot for all the help. I may forgo the master filter as all we will have coming over the phone line is internet and it is slated that in 6 months we will be eligible for UFB.

Hopefully I can pick up a BT to RJ cable and give it a whirl. You guys are truly informative.

Thanks again

If the previous owner/tenant had ADSL or VDSL, there is a chance there could already be a master filter hidden inside a telecom box somewhere. Find the BT cord from an old telephone and plug in the router, and if the ADSL light doesnt come on within a minute or 2 then try different jacks around the house looking for one thats been labelled as DSL. If theres no master jack (ie ADSL works on all of them) then you will at least have to plug an inline filter into each telephone or anything else like Sky or burglar alarm. Best to just get the master filter installed.
