Briefly, my son has moved into a new residence and got dry loop U-verse...no landline. He ordered the self install kit and depended on me to get him hooked up.
They sent him a NVG510 Gateway. It's currently up and running however I am having some wiring issues.
There is no phone lines at the NID. This is a NID I have never dealt with.
The above pic is the NID. Actually there was some wiring in place that was plugged into the first orange connection on the left however it has been cut and was hanging below the house flooring very close to the NID. I just pulled it. The current CAT3 wire is the new one I ran using the Blue/Blue-White pair. I could not get the modem to sync using this connection.
The modular connection that is plugged in is from a previous resident and is a dual filter/dsl connector. It still had the green supplied chord you usually get with a new dsl modem. This connection works with the modem. So I know U-verse is working however I am not sure about the wiring I ran and how those 4 orange connectors are supposed to be connected.
My CAT 3 line runs to one of those square modular connectors on the other side of the house. This module is the normal POTS colored wiring....Red, Yellow, Green and Black. I'm pretty sure I wired to the two inside/middle pin connections.
Looks like if I had a modular end to put on the NID end of the CAT3 line I could simply plug it in to the modular port and all would be fine. However at the time I did not have one to splice on.
Can anyone enlighten me on where I might have wired incorrectly?
