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.
Can anyone enlighten me on where I might have wired incorrectly?
Hard to say ... the other end of the wire on the modular jack is not visible. Is this the line with the DSL filter/splitter? -- Norman ~Oh Lord, why have you come ~To Konnyu, with the Lion and the Drum
No! The DSL modem splitter is the one that is hooked up to the jack in the NID. This is currently working and simply runs a short distance to a room on the other side of the wall the NID is mounted on.
The CAT3 line in the picture is the one I am trying to get connected/working. That one is the new line I ran under the house to a square modular connector with the standards POTS colored wires.
In doing more research I see the correct hookup is T = White w blue to Green and R = Blue w white to Red. Which is what I had tried. In other words at the modular jack end I am using the Red and Green leads for the connection from the NID.
Hopefully that makes sense! lol
What is confusing to me now is that the modular plug works with the modem but the CAT3 line doesn't. I'm just not sure how that NID module is wired.
Also I have one of those phone line testers. The ones that show incorrect polarity, etc. When I plug it in the led lights do not light up like it's a dead circuit. That just confuses me more.
I admit I am a little weak in how DSL wiring compares to U-verse offerings but I have to assume there really is very little difference. U-verse still uses the same pair as a DSL line would use correct?
