I am thinking of fitting a ADSL splitter faceplate for use with my BT telephone Line box (Not sure of the correct name)as I have been having trouble with my broadband. My question is are there different faceplate's for ADSL and ADSL2 connections. My Broadband is ADSL2.
I see, other than the BTiPlate, I have not seen any mention of different plates for ADSL1 or 2.
The plate in your link could improve your broadband, but don't bank on it - other factors also play a role, such as age of wiring internally and externally, distance from exchange etc, though I expect you already know all this.
The problem I have been having is that when the phone rings I can loose the broadband connection or/and have dramatic speed drop. Broadband works fine when plugged direct into the "Test Socket" along with the phone plugged into the filter. I have an extension which is hard wired into the BT Box which goes to the bedrooms which I think may be the problem. I thought the ADSL splitter faceplate may help along with looking neater. I have replaced the 2 filters twice making no difference to my problem.
If you check the wiring for your extension teplephone sockets, you may find that wires are connected to terminals 2,3,4 & 5. With most modern systems, there is only a need for wires in terminals 2 & 5. If you ae able to disconnect the other wires temporarily and try your broadband again. Do not cut them off as you may need to reconnect them at some point in time. Sometimes these additonal connections can act as an aerial an induce interference into the line. This should only be carried out on the wiring to your extension socket and not on the incoming BT dropper. No promises that it will work, but it is worth a try. It made a considerable difference to my connection speed etc. As Technotiger suggests, change the micro filter, they are not very expensive and can fail without warning. Let us know how you get on.
