      Greetings,

      The servers and the modem are about 40 to 50 feet from the master socket, in a small cosy room, on the connection app gadget for the modem I normally got a speed of 3.4'ish. However after reading the above and removing the 'ringer' wires (3 & 4) from the extension cable at the master socket the speed jumped to 4.7 and peaked at 5.2 so result

      This is a very informative piece, but it is littered with reference to pictures and diagram which don't seem to exist. Where are they?

      The only one not working now is the one in post # 6, probably because it has expired through not being hosted on the forum server.

      All the info is in Post # 1.

      Can you deduce from the routers statistics whether or not it would be a good idea to rewire or not?

      Yes, if you have a master socket, remove it and try the test socket behind. An appreciable difference here will mean an improvement can be had.
