Information
The information below is based on the situation in the Netherlands where you have a phone line entering your home and you want to install ADSL using this line.


  1. First locate where the phone line enters your home (also known as ISRA point), it is often the same location where your gas meter, water meter and electricity meter is located. Usually the meter cupboard.

    Note: ISRA is a dutch abbreviation for InfraStructuur RandApparatuur.

  2. Above the ISRA point one (see: IMAGE 1B) or more phone lines (see: IMAGE 1A) can be found. Each line goes to different rooms in your house for example, to your living room and bed room.

  3. If there are more then one phone lines going to different rooms remove the ISRA point cap and write down the wire colors and its location in the ISRA point in case you need to put things back in its original situation.

    Remove cap.

  4. Unscrew 1A, 1B, Earth, 2A and 2B and remove the wires, do not cut the wires!

  5. Mount a phone wall socket and splitter in the meter cupboard.
