    is that a european residential connector as that is not a north american residential connector as we use a 4 pin style not 6 pin? do you have another 1 to look at to see how it was done?

    Thanks for the replys
    I now know where each wire goes, thanks.
    I read that i need a "Krone Tool" to connect the wires to the connectors. Is there anything else i can use?

    no worries; i only have the cheapy plastic versions of the tool, but failing having one of those, you just need a small flat screwdriver, as all you need to do is carefully push the wires down into the contacts (from each side, just alternate from side to side a couple times as you push the wires down, to make sure they're secure). Be careful you don't snap the flimsy metal contacts though

    Do i have to strip the wire slightly exposing the insides, or is this not necessary.

    Seems like you have enough slack there, you can actual push them down with your fingers and use scissors to cut the slack off the end.

    The contacts will strip the coating away so as -creaky- said "No, don't strip the wires"

    can also use the plastic inserter for ethernet wall jacks but slot screwdriver will work as done that method before.

    ok, there's good news and bad news the good news is that all the wires are connected, the bad news is that is i snapped the white/orange wire. i think i have managed to connect it but not too sure. i tried pushing the snapped end into the connector hence why that wire is so long.

    well if you snapped the wire just try to stretch the cable a bit but it you snapped the metal bit off you can just buy a new box cheaply, places like Wilkinsons do them real cheap

    DAMN! I have a new problem, this may be OT but i discovered that the telephone cable is CUT on its way back to my house (original phone socket in garage). This must have been done by the previous owner of the house, i therefore do not know hot to reconnect the two ends which have been disconnected for around 2years. I dont have to solder the two ends together do i?

    either replace the cable to the house or use crimp on wire splicers.
