      Many thanks for this, I ordered one and it arrived today - as soon as I installed it, my speed went up from 1Mb to 7Mb! so very chuffed with that so thanks again, I've also got rid of all the filters which is handy too.

      How easy is this to install for a novice?

      Re: Frequent disconnections

      I wouldn't say it's difficult - although I do have experience of messing around with network cables. I just got a cheap plastic socket cabling tool from Wilkinsons - about 69p (can't remember exactly what it's called) and just copied like for like the cabling to the existing socket.

      Although it is a bit more work, there is nothing to stop you fitting your own Master socket. This can be fitted immediately behind the BT Main Socket, taking one wire from there to your new Master Socket, then connecting your extensions to the faceplate. Provided you do not interfere with the BT side of the socket, I don't think there is anything illegal in this. Note though, if you do not have extensions, this is pointless and the only thing you can do to improve things, is take the wire of the No 3 terminal.

      Re: Frequent disconnections

      I had exactly same problems - if 'go into router' - http:192.168.0.1 ( I think this is right http address - please correct me if I'm wrong) ( uname admin pwd sky) - disable uPNP - I did this, and now connection rock steady reliable, although no longer reports connection speed in bottom-right of taskbar ( no big loss tho'). HOW this makes things better, I didn't get; I read it on this forum somewhere, tried it, & tada - it worked for me as they say.
