      Yeah it connects the upstairs phone and allows us to connect the broadband upstairs insteading running more wires around the house. However I must have done something when I tested it downstairs because I just did a test on my computer, and the computer was set up the exact way it was before and these were the results:



      seems like the problem is solved, but is rather confusing how that happened in the first place. I am now actually getting faster speeds than I have ever gotten, weird.

      Thanks for all your help, I will report back if anything strange happens with it again.

      Iv'e lost track again now. Here is how you set-up should be wired.
      (1) As the extension upstaris is a plug in one, then a BT-Iplate will sort the ring line in it.
      So get a BT i-Plate and fit it to your master socket.

      (2) Now plug the double adaptor/line to upstairs in to the master socket

      (3) plug a filter into the adaptor and ensure the everthing downstairs is connected to the phone side of the filter.

      (4) at the socket upstairs fit a second filter, with the router on the router outlet and everthing else on the phone outlet.

      I think there is something you must understand, speedtests are all very well, but can give very different results even when taken minutes apart. Speedtest.net in particular, has been proved time and again to be inaccurate. To get a realistic idea of what your line is capable of you must obtain the stats from the router when it is plugged into the various outlets in your house.
