The appearance of broadband links (ADSL) represents a new stage for the user, who spends more and more time in front of his computer screen. To fit out its "web" corner and surf the web, connecting a phone jack to the existing installation is essential...
Purring the computer (in fact, fan noise), keystrokes on the keyboard, and mouse clicks can annoy family members when connections last late into the night. Take this into account to determine the location of your "web" corner.
Telephone wire contacts are very sensitive to moisture and oxidation. To prevent the inconvenience of a line that spits or suddenly becomes mute, do not hesitate to solder (tin) the splices.
At the very beginning of the internet, a telephone extension was unrolled and connected to one of the outlets of the house, the time of a navigation reserved for off-peak hours. This, both for reasons of economy and not isolate himself from his loved ones by occupying the line during the day.
The advent of unlimited plans marked a decisive step for Internet users, who can thus connect 24 hours a day if they want to. And the house phone line remains free for incoming and outgoing calls. Suddenly, the extension of the beginnings is abandoned in favor of a fixed telephone socket, located near the computer.
The connection is made on the terminal block, easily identifiable by its pictogram in relief. In the case of an apartment or a recent detached house, it is located inside the house (in principle, near the distribution board) and is powered by an ivory cable running under a sheath. For older houses, the telephone cable is usually aerial (black or gray) and leads to a wall-mounted case on the facade. It is from this point that are fed, apparently most often, your plugs (or contactors) telephone.
The simplest solution is to route the cable (6 mm in diameter) by gluing it along the plinth and the door jamb to the location provided for the additional contactor. To do this, use a hot melt glue gun, perfectly suited for this purpose. You can also pass the cable in a molded and screwed in the wall, or attached directly to the adhesive mastic.
Using a two-compartment molding will allow you to run a power supply conductor at the same time. The case of the contactor is installed as an electrical outlet, wall or recessed.
In all cases, the two wires to be used are identified by their color code: white and gray. There is no polarity. The voltage of the installation (48 volts) is safe, but the voltage rises to 80 volts when calling from outside. The effect of surprise could make you jump...
To cut the ivory cable to the desired length, a pair of pliers or a good pair of scissors will do the trick. There is no risk of short circuit. Strip the ends of the two strands, gray and white, and connect them to the two terminals (engraved 1 and 3) at the top left of the slot for the telephone link cable that came with your computer. It remains to connect this one on the new take, and good surf on the web!
If the connection is made outside, you can run the cable through the frame of a wooden window. Drill a Ø 6 mm hole using a suitable length drill.
Lay the cable in recessed
Installation of the flush-mounted cable is restrictive. A molding is sufficiently discreet and offers the advantage of being easy to fix: here, with a glue putty applied to the extruder gun.
Identify fixing points
Present the molding at its location and notch it, as well as the molding, to allow the passage of the cable. Then find on the wall the points
drilling of the fixing screws.
To drill, use a tool (drill or drill) and a drill adapted to the nature of the masonry. Ditto for the dowels, to choose according to the material: solid or hollow.
Strip the wires
The "Telecom" cable is an eight-core model. In practice, we always use the same pair of wires: gray and white. Strip their ends about one centimeter.
Connect the wires
Connect the two wires (in any order) to the two upper pins located on either side of the inverted "T" shaped housing for snapping the telephone plug.
Solder each splice
Quick couplers installed by France Telecom installers are not reusable. Make a tin solder for each splice at the outer junction box.
Isolate the wires
Before closing the outer terminal block, to insulate the wires, tighten the welded splices into a "domino". In the same way, fill the two holes of the latter with grease until refusal.
