      The master socket you have has the option to remove the front and plug directly into the TEST socket behind, when you do this all the internal sockets be it 1 or 100 will be disconnected and that will remove any wiring issues you may have there.

      Plugging into the master socket will not do this which is why you are being advised to use the TEST socket behind.

      Until we can compare the stats from the TEST socket to the other ones we cannot rule out an internal wiring issue.

      UNTIL YOU DO THIS AND POST STATS NEITHER I OR ANYONE ELSE CAN HELP YOU

      I assume this is from the test socket as you have not advised.

      You have a slightly better speed but lower SNR. Only one last thing to try, plug a phone into the TEST socket and listen to see if there is any noise. If not I think that you are getting just about as good as you can get.

      To get the best connection you can you should fit a filtered faceplate and use a couple of homeplugs to connect (if you cannot use a fixed cable). You can get a homeplug that will also act as a wireless extender if you need to use a wireless laptop.

      It looks to me like your wiring has been installed incorrectly. Your extension wire is connected directly to the main line input. They should be attached to the faceplate.This is the reason why your speed is so low and apart from that as it is bypassing the capacitor it is potentially dangerous. You should get this fixed as soon as possible.

      Disconnect the wires from the A-B terminals in the line box, plug into the Test socket and I guarantee your speed will increase. The wires can be put in their proper place on terminals 2 and 5 on the backplate.
