      It can be, if all you need to know is the order on the line seeing as it has NO other information in it regarding line speed/attenuation/SNR etc...

      well if it seems unlikely that sky will be able to resolve this all the while its wired wrong i think i may have to! isit a hard job? does it involve rewireing into the walls etc or just changing the wires in the socket?? :S

      do the wires look old (assuming you can see them)? if not, then just reconnecting them with the right tool should suffice but if they look old then I'd recommend rewiring the lot...

      Ummm not really odd theres 5 wires, 2 green 2 black and a blue one.
      they come from next to the test socket and go up through the top of the box, i can take a picture if it will help?

      Could you take the master off the wall and take a pic of the back to show the A and B terminals?

      O.k mate thats fine. Now the next bit depends on how you feel about the extension, could you manage without it tonight?
      If you could follow this.

      (1) switch off you router and unplug from the master socket.

      (2) remove the two blue wires from the A and B terminals. this should just leave the white and orange wires connected.

      (3) you should now have a dial tone at the test socket and nowhere else.

      (4) Put the socket back on the wall and pull the two blue wires through to the front.

      (5) reconnect the router and see what your noise margin is like now.
