This is a kind of a "off topic" post, but because the final intention is to connect a Broadband router I thought the good folks here in the network forum could help. I recently moved in to a brand new building, there are phone sockets in every room, but the BT engineer only activated the main socket in the living room and said he wasn't allowed to touch any other. (I am sure I would be able to change his mind with a £10 tip offer, but unfortunately I wasn't at home when he came, my wife dealt with him ) None of the other sockets are working at the moment, out of curiosity I opened one of them and they seem to be all wired up, so my guess is that they only need some kind of simple "activation" on the main socket (?). Well as you can see I have no knowledge on this matter, can anyone out there help? Any tip?
