I am trying to fit a telephone extension. I found the: http://www.wppltd.demon.co.uk/WPP/Wiring/UK_telephone/uk_telephone.html web site that has been recommended here before.
I have had no problems with wiring the socket. I bought a punch down tool for about 7gbp and have wired it:
2 blue/white 3 orange/white 4 white/orange 5 white/blue
I've checked the continuity: everything is fine.
The problem I'm having is those terrible BT plugs! I bought a crimper only to find it was for 6p6c, not bt plugs! I've bought one off ebay for BT plugs but it's not brilliant. Can anyone recommend a good one that doesn't cost the earth?
Anyway, I'm not sure if I am wiring the plugs wrong. The diagrams on this web site show the plugs but with yellow, green, blue, and brown cables rather than the cable colours, so I am unsure what goes where. Am I right to think the photos show the plug upside-down, so that the contacts are pointing up towards you?
It seems to suggest the plug is wired in reverse to the socket, i..e. white/blue, white/orange, orange, blue. Is that right?
