Broadband self set up

Joining in

I'm due to have my self set up delivered today and have been reading on here. I have spoke with someone on the phone who has organised a tech for Monday. But he didn't really seem to understand my situation.. 

Im just wondering if i have the correct wires for self set up? Frustrated I won't have any internet next few days. 

Here is the outside box what leads to inside wires? 






Dialled in

The internal box you show is marked OpenReach with a Sky Microfilter. You need to find the VirginMedia internal box which will have a co-ax terminal.

Where does the white wire lead to?

You need to check if this wire is from the external wall box where it appears to enter your home from the brown wire:

Hard to see really, but I think that black wire is looped into the box onto the Brown twin cable.?  I'd reckon it's the end of the brown cable you need to find.  The maze of old phone wires can be ignored, as VM are using VoIP now.

From what I can see it appears to go from the openreach to the external box as you say. 

I can't seem to find one

If you have followed the cable back externally and can not locate it then you will need to book for a VM Tech to visit and complete your installation. 

The tech will try to find the cable or simply run a new one in.
