Correct. white with blue = white wire with blue stripe and blue with white = blue wire with white stripeNolzman wrote:The terminology is still somewhat confusing, with the white with blue and blue with white?? All I see is a blue wire and a white wire. I assume the blue wire has a white stripe and the white wire has a blue stripe, but it was night and sleeting, when I took the pictures. I will go re-verify that this evening.
Yes, find the orange pair - white wire with orange stripe and orange wire with white stripeNolzman wrote: 1. Unplug the phone line from the jack in the NIB.
2. Find the orange and white pair of wires from the bunch.
Connect the orange pair to the same screw terminals the blue pair is connected to. Don't connect anything to the upper screw terminals that are empty right now.Nolzman wrote: 3. Connect the white (white with orange) to the Green terminal and connect the orange (orange with white) to the Red terminal. *** The L2 terminals are above the L1 (already connected) in the picture....correct???
Since you'll be connecting the orange pair to the same screw terminals, you'd need to take the blue pair off the terminals first and then connect the orange pair to them.Nolzman wrote: 4. Then disconnect the blue and white wires from the L1 terminal.
For confirmation:Nolzman wrote: 5. Then plug the phone line back into the Jack.
6. Using the designate splitter, plug the DSL Modem in to L2 port and verify that I still have Internet connection.
Step #5, this is the same plug you unplugged in step #1 in the NIB.
The splitter pictured should be plugged into a wall jack inside the house near your modem.
You can clip the exposed leads on the blue pair right after you disconnect them from the screw terminals.Nolzman wrote:
7. Once internet is verified, I can clip the exposed metal ends on the Blue and White wires (to insure they do no accidentally connect/touch anything), and close up the NIB.
You can close up the NIB right after you plug the plug back in step #5.
You'll be good to go.Nolzman wrote: 8. Hopefully, I can then connect the Ooma "phone" port to the L1 port of the splitter and I will get a dial tone throughout the house!!!!!
9. Set the DTV DVR receiver to dial out with prefix *99 and put a DSL filter between receiver and wall jack to maximize successful dialout.
Until early 90's I think, they used to use green, red, black, & yellow wires for phone lines.Nolzman wrote: By the way, what are the references to the black and yellow? Are they the color of the wire running from L2?
L1: green = tip, red = ring
L2: black = tip, yellow = ring
Screw terminal colors: red = ring, green = tip; some NIB has black and yellow screw terminals as well (your upper screw terminals that are empty and meant for L2 lines coming from the telephone company; you don't have any signals coming from the telephone company on the L2 terminal screws).
