Re: Black RJ45-BT LAUs, do they exist?



Thanks Simon.
I'd been using white ones for a while (can't remember whether I'd bought
master or secondary) on a mish-mash of cat5 and original phone cable, some
via a patch panel and some direct-wired. This perhaps partly explains why I
was getting a "low" broadband speed...

We're renovating our house and "phone cable" is banned(!) in
preference to
Cat5 throughout. I know I can fit BT sockets onto cat5 cable / faceplates
but would rather not and black LAUs will blend in so much better.

I'll be fitting a new split NTE5 plate (like the 1st item on this page,
http://www.solwise.co.uk/adsl_splitters-faceplates.htm)
onto my incoming
line and taking feeds to a patch panel from connections on the back of the
faceplate. And then from the patch panel to other phones etc.

I might have to make up my own leads - once I've got the master at the
incoming plate it should be just a pin-out  / adapter that's needed.

Cheers,
Tim.
