Socket Wiring

2446 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Speedy Petey
Hello everyone, I just activated my telephone and dsl lines yesterday and have been having trouble connecting to the internet.

I've plugged my new modem into the wall socket and it doesn't give any indication of a network being present. Looking inside the socket I see that two wires aren't connected to anything is this normal?

I've traced the wires back under the house and this is the only socket they lead to. Which numbers do they correspond to if any?

I live in Australia and the socket is labeled

If this is a simple fix please let me know.
