hi there
i have just purchased a 2 way switch and when removing the old one it had different connection to my new one so i was wondering if any one could give me some advise on this subject.

the problem is that there is no (common) connection only L,L1,L2 so i am unsure which cable is to go where.

on my old connection the
yellow cable went in L1
blue cable in L2
red in com
red in com
red in L1

but my new switch has
L
L
L2
L1
L2
L1

i was wondering if there was any one out there who could help
many thanks
