Installing DSL Home Run Line

I need to install a home run line for my dsl. The current line gives me terrible connection speeds. I have been searching the web but still have a few questions.

It sounds like I need to use a DSL splitter by the NIB and that will eliminate any need for addition filters. Is the necessary? How do I connect the NIB to the Splitter? Just use some CAT 5e and connect from where the other house lines went into the NIB then to the Splitter? I would like to leave the old house wiring hooked up the way it is. Is it posible to just run the DSL line into the same connection in the NIB as a paralllel connection? On the modem side, which lines are the signal suppose to be on the connector?

Can somebody point me to a good guide?

Most people use the filters. They aren't necessary in all cases, but they don't hurt either.

The filter needs to go on every line except the one that goes to the DSL modem.

You can do all this at the NID, as you suggest. What I would do is to plug a duplex connector into the NID. Then use a filter on one side and no filter on the other. Then use some type of connector for your wires.

DSL Slow Speed

I figured out the NIB connection and installed some CAT 5e. It did not solve my slow download speed. My upload looks like it is up to speed now. The DSL line is on its own phone line drop with no phones installed on it. I am able to download at about twice the speed of dial up. Could it be a problem with the phone company? It seems that the home wiring should not be the problem. Any sugestions?

what speeds do they advertise ?

DSl is sold at varios speed levels for varios prices .if you are not meeting the advertised speed then they need to correct it .

have you talked to the provider about it ?

if there is no phone on the line a filter isnt needed

I talk to my DSL provider. It sounds like the problem could be at the dslam. They are going to come out tomorrow. The download speed is a bit fast than dial up and the upload is getting about half of what it should. I do not think it is on my end. The only concern I have is about the tip and ring wiring. I figure that it is wired right since I am getting some signal. It they were reverse would it sill work? Hopefully it is on their end, I do not want to get charged. I will post my results tomorrow.

dslam is a central office item so no need for a tech to come out

polarity shouldnt matter but have you tried reversing it ?

you can pick up a cheap tester at radio shack that will glow green for correct polarity / red for reversal

or just be sure what ever wire is hooked up to green at the NID is hooked up toi green at the jack

The Qwest guy came out and said my wiring was fine. The problem is with a coil in the line that supplies the box. Hopefully they will fix it soon.

Is it necessary to have a POTS Splitter for a DSL line. Can you attach the DSL with the phone line so you have two seperate lines coming from the NIB then use fiters? So, the DSL and Phone line would be in parallel from the terminal on the NIB.
