I have recently moved into my new house. The master socket from BT appeared to be in the living room with an extension into the hallway. I now find the master socket is the extension, the socket in the hallway just a dummy as nothing was wired into it ( probs why the phone didn’t work....🙄). At the moment I have my hub plugged into the socket in the living room and no phone, my question is can I just put the master socket back in the hall and plug the hub into that and wire the extension socket for the living room for the phone? Does it matter which way round the wires are?
Solved! Go to Solution.
if that is master with incoming openreach wiring then you should be able to put master back and connet white and orange to terminals A&B the extension would then be wired to terminals 2&5 on back of front plate
wires either way round
is master socket filtered - has 2 sockets one for broadband and one for phone? if yea then no filters required - if only phone socket then you need filter on both sockets
