Hi to the forum
I moved into a house which used to have a BT landline and internet. The whole house has phone extension sockets and the master socket is double one, “ADSL V1.0” just like this.
I have a fibre to home box and I want to connect the landline signal to the master.
The landline phone works only if connected directly to the TEL1 socked in the fibre box.
I read in the guidance that I’m supoosed to connect the RJ11 cable from the WiFi hub into the master socket, which is what thr engineer did.
But then the master socket does not have a phone signal.
The TEL1 socket from the fibre box which does have the phone signal has a standard british phone plug which can also reach the master socket but that occupies the standard british phone socket in there.
The original wiring for the master socket is from a cable from the old BT line wired into the socket, and does not have a proper plug.
I know little about this but it seems to me that I should be using the cable from the TEL1 socket in the fibre box, to supply the phone line to the master socket, but that means I would have to wire it directly removing the old cable.
Sorry, if this makes more sense with a picture I’ll find a way of posting here.
There is no concept of a master socket if you have FTTP (fibre to the premises) and fibre voice, voice is delivered to the Tel1 socket. The hub only connects to the master socket if you have FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) which relies on the copper phone line to provide broadband and voice. The Hub WAN socket connects to the fibre ONT. You just need an extension lead for the Tel1 socket.
Yes, if you connect Tel1 to the phone socket on the master you will have telephony at all your extension sockets but obviously won't be able to plug a phone inthe master socket. The simplest solution would be to just use a plug in doubler socket at the master socket.
