1) Fit a faceplate splitter to the master socket in the hall - that will
take care of all phones and modems in one go (and yes you will still
want to use the modem for sending faxes and for the times the ADSL goes
2) Replace the existing socket in bedroom 4 with a PBX master type
(or add a bipolar ring capacitor between pins 2 & 3 of existing socket)
4) Add a new extension socket next to the existing one in bedroom 4
5) In the cable between master and the bedroom 4 socket, disconnect the
wire going to pin 3 at both ends (normally orange/white). This should
now leave 1 spare pair in that cable (orange/white and white/orange).
6) Cut the end of a RJ11 lead so you have 6" of flex attached to a plug
feed the free end into the back box of the master and crimp the inner
two wires in it to the spare pair. Plug the RJ11 into the ADSL socket on
the front of the splitter. Note if you can get one of the modified
faceplate splitters that have both filtered and unfiltered connections
on the back then you can dispense with this kludgey step!
7) Connect the other end of the spare pair to pins 2 and 5 of the newly
installed secondary socket.
8) Connect your router to the new socket via a normal modem style RJ11
to BT plug lead.
That should mean all of the sockets are filtered except for the new
dedicated ADSL one that you installed. There is no need for extra wiring
through the house since you are cheating and using one two pair cable to
service 2 sockets.
