I think you may be referring to the normal BT filtered faceplate v1.0 - see here about half-way down the page.

Hi Notty,

Don't forget that the usual rules apply. Only wire up pins 2 & 5 on any extension cables to slave sockets, leaving the ring wire disconnected.
Given that this is sometimes called a SSFP (I.e. special systems) I'm surprised BT O still seem to insist in connecting the ring wire.

Kind regards,
Walter

Stands for Service specific front plate.

If you have the dsl front plate of the one with the bell choke on a normal front plate (which is found on nte's with the openreach logo. of a retrofitted one by a bt engineer the front pstn flap is a slight off white/very pale grey colour) then the bell wire is filtered.

The vast majority of nte's won't have a filter for the bell wire so there you can experiment to see if disconnecting the bell wire improves the signal. If so then you can either leave the bell wire disconnected or fit an I-plate (which is the same as a bell choked bt front plate).

If you get an improvement in signal by plugging into the test socket regardless of disconnecting the bell wire then you need to look at the dsl ssfp whcih filters the bell wire and the 2 voice wires as these are causing the problem. The disadvantage is the nte becomes the only place where your router/modem can pick up a broadband signal. (unless you also fit a data extention kit)
