Default House telephone wiring

In a house with elderly internal telephone extension wiring, will
fitting one of the solwise ADSL filtered faceplates for the NTE1 master
socket effectively isolate the extension wiring from the ADSL circuit
and prevent any signal degradation?

Do you mean NTE5? If so yes!

Yes, but if your wiring is *very* elderly you may not have an NTE5 master
socket with removeable faceplate.

If you do have one, the filtered faceplate will isolate the extension wiring
*provided* that it is all ultimately connected into the back of the existing
faceplate. If any wiring by-passes that, you may still have a problem.

I think ISOLATE is the wrong word here. The filter does not ISOLATE the
extension wiring from the ADSL as this implies no leakage etc and air-gap
style disconnection. It will reduce the effect, but there will still be some
additional loading.....

True, but it would be theoretically possible - if not technically
permissable - to fit one. Or one could ask BT to do it.

Point taken. But it sounds like it should give the best signal
possible without replacing the extension wiring.

The way to test it is to remove the BT faceplate and plug the modem into the
test socket. This means that nothing else will be connected. If this is OK
then fit the ADSLNation faceplate and connect the extension wiring as per
the instructions. This should tell you if your existing wiring is the
problem. HTH.

Thanks! We did exactly that in fact. In its old location, the SNR was
wandering between about 8 and 15. Direct to the master, we got a solid
27. We've now fitted the filtered faceplate and reconnected the
extension wiring, and the signal is still good so it seems the wiring
was the problem.
