The modem cable from filtered face plate to router is rj11 both ends but you can run a longer rj11 cable
you can use the terminals inside filtered master and run a data extension cable to a new socket
Thanks for the reply. I realise my mistake. I have a long Cat5e cable RJ45 both ends. I also have one of these:
RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Extension Socket - Cat5e/Cat6 Tool-less IDC Terminals
So can I plug one end of the cable ( RJ45) into the VDSL socket on the faceplate and cut off the connector at the other end and attach it to the extension socket? And then use the current router cable from there?
Just connect 1 pair of the CAT5 cable to the data extension terminals of the master and pins 2&5 of the extension socket. You will need to use a filter in the extension to convert from phone socket to RJ11. Alternatively, if you don't want telephony at the extension, just fit an RJ11 faceplate instead of extension phone faceplate and connect directly to that.
Please remove link to e-commerce site, it is against forum rules.
depends on which master you have A&B and the normal connections for incoming openreach cable and connecting extension there will cause star wiring and not good for your broadband need to stick to data extension terminals
this shows correct connections https://www.openreach.co.uk/orpg/home/helpandsupport/how-toguides/howtoguides/downloads/NTE5C_Instru...
Thank you liquorice. As you can tell I'm not knowledgeable on this. Can I ask a few follow up questions.
1. If I connect Cat5e cable to data extension terminals on master socket (marked A&B) is that signal then filtered? Yes
2. At the other end can I not just plug my RJ11 from the router cable into the RJ45 extension socket I've already got? Yes
I don't need telephony at the other end and I don't need a faceplate.
If it makes any difference I have a 5c master socket with mk4 VDSL faceplate
P.s. thanks for the heads up on the commercial link. I can't easily see how to edit a post but I'll keep looking.
Just realised date and time of your post. You can only edit a post for 1 hour after posting. The mods will probably edit it if they spot it.
I am just updating my cable at the moment and you can fit (Lots of details about this on YouTube, Google etc) an RJ45 in the BTOpenreach socket but it does have to be a RJ11 at the modem end. These cables can be got directly from ebay or amazon etc and could even go down the line of Cat6 versions.
I use mainly Cat6 and Cat7 for my updating to future proof my equipment as I have internal and external Plex media systems and home server with NAS setups.
So in answer to your question YES you can have a RJ45 at the Openreach socket but must be a RJ11 at the modem end.
Hope that helps
