I am a younger electrician who is new to telephone wiring. I want to add another telephone socket as i have gathered so far you connect no 2, 3, 4, and 5 at the main incoming socket to the new socket i'm installing (at my house for practice) i guess i do the same adding 2, 3, 4, and 5 at the new socket. and can the terminations be done with a punch down tool?

Can some confirm this is correct?

Also i want to plug the phone in at the main incoming and the router at the new socket, will i still need to plug in the micro filters at both ends?

Please Help i'm still learning, thankyou

I like the thought of a "younger electrician". Just had a mental picture of a 5 year-old having just completed his 5 week course....

just connect 2 and 5. no need for 3 and 4. you will need a adsl filter at each point.

I'd be tempted to open the existing point and connect up whatever's in there the same in the new one. (if it's not just 2 and 5).
