Can anyone help!?

Ever since the bt broadband engineer decided to disconnect our phone extension socket in the bedroom because he thought it was interfering with our BB signal (not sure why he thought this but I was out and he told my wife he would try it!) then it hasn't been working.

Trouble is I am not sure how\what he disconnected.

Basically I have an external BT junction box outside the house and I have attached a diagram showing which wires are connected where.

Can anyone take a look at the pic and suggest what needs connecting \changing to make the upstairs socket live again??

Any help appreciated!

thanks,
Rich.

I think its illegal to do anything to the BT external junction box as its propery of BT.

However you can buy another telephone socket for around £6 the comes with everything you need including the wiring instructions and to connect it from you downstairs socket you just plug in into the front of it. I done this when i installed one in my bedroom.

You can get them out of wilko's.

I can do this but the wiring is already there so much easier just to reconnect!

Plus most internal extensions are white and the cable goes round outside the house and so routing internally will be a right pain and involve lots of hassle

Hi Shortie :welcomeuhm:

I don't know the answer your question, I would wait for a more sensible answer from one of our more experienced members. :wink:

If you just connect the wires from the bedroom socket to the push in terminals that the master socket connects to it should work.

You will need an insertion tool though really

I think as a minimum for a slave socket you need to connect
white and blue
white and orange
Blue and white
Orange and white

As I understand it, orange/white is the bellwire - which some disconnect, and white and orange is not actually required but usually connected for completed.

What does stand out to the untrained eye is that the wires are not consistent (colour/pinj) at each end (master/ext) but I can't say if this is wrong.
