I'm needing to figure out what the heck is going on with my AT&T DSL as I'm very confused.
My house came pre-wired with CAT5 cabling all of which is run in the attic in some shape or form.
There are a total of 5 CAT5 cables in the attic, (2) of which start in the attic and terminate at separate analog phone jacks, the other (2) come in from the AT&T service box on the outside of my house (incoming lines from AT&T), and (1) that terminates directly into my alarm system.
So, basically, when AT&T came to install our local phone line and DSL service, three of these CAT5 cables were terminated to their service box. Upon further investigation all three of these cables were terminated separately with the blue and white/blue cables.
I'm trying to determine why I have to use both of the incoming phone lines from AT&T to get a DSL signal. I'm using a telephone distribution module from Channelview. When only using one of the incoming CAT5's I have phone but no DSL.
My problem is that I'm subscribed to the Elite DSL package which allows my 6MB downloads. Currently, I'm getting half (2.6MB) of that when looking at the incoming connection speeds on my DSL 2wire modem. For humor sake, I connected my DSL 2wire modem directly to an analog phone jack and checked my speeds and it was back up to 6MB. Is something wrong with my wiring? I'm using a CAT5 cable from the Channelview dist. module and terminating the blue, white-blue, orange, and white-orange wires into a RJ11 jack.
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
