That one is out of stock and i couldn't see it at the local jaycar. Will grab the other one and have a go.

 

 

 

 

they can be a bit fiddly (slip either side of the wire) but will do the job if you pay attention

Here is what i ended up with last night, but still no dial tone on any jack points. ADSL still fine (it disconnects every time i mess with the wires but reconnects fine).

 If you done need that jack-point to work, then remove wires and join Red+Blue and White+White together using these:

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?

What should he do with the other 98?

 

 





Life is too short to remove USB safely.

OP, can you send me your s/s account number?  I'm half wondering at this point if you have some other fault, or a naked service.  Cheers.

Not sure if it is an account problem, i just had another play and moved the wires down to the next connectors and now i have intermittent dial tone, ADSL seems to be connected at full speed.

 

When i pick the phone up i either get noise, dial tone or just dead silence. Dial tone will work for a while and then just disappear.

 

I can call out when i have the dial tone.

 

Wonder if the jackpoint itself is faulty?

Could be or you've not punched the wires down correctly.  I think at this stage it's worth getting someone in to have a look.

I'm ready to get someone else to have a look, are you able to look at the account for me, maybe get my line checked?

 

There are no timeslots available for callback on the slingshot site and I don't really want to use my mobile on hold for ages if possible.

Ok, just to finish the thread. Problem was out on the street, Slingshot/Chorus had it sorted pretty quick after i lodged the fault.
