I have moved into a shared space. Rather than force my house mates to install filters on all their phones, I want to install a separate phone line so I can get dry-loop DSL from a local ISP. Though I'm comfortable with networking, anything that touches phone lines makes me nervous. I'd particularly like to avoid disrupting the pre-existing telephone service.
I have taken a couple of photographs of the demarcation point where I live and posted them at:
I purchased a length of 4-strand telephone wire (R,G,Y,B) and attached a modular plug to the end of it. If anyone can give me some pointers about how to attach my cable to the demarcation point I'd appreciate it, or for that matter how to deal with the phone company afterwards. I expect I'll need a circuit number from the phone company for that line in order to provide it to my ISP, but given that I'm still trying to figure it out myself it's hard to explain what I'd like to do when talking to a service representative over the phone.
I can take any other photos that might be necessary, if that's a help.
Thanks (in advance) for your time and attention!
