      Does it create noise within the socket connections, or does it create the noise down the line to the master socket (by running next to the other wires creating possible RF?)

      By all acounts it acts more like an antenna and picks up noise in the surrounding area. Personally, I would remove it from all sockets just to be sure.

      Although Isitme is probably right.

      Just been searching the forum about removing the bell wire and came accross some posts which advised leaving only wires 2 & 5 connected, this sounds like a scary procedure is it quite easy to do?

      The main socket is situated outside the property so I dont want to touch that, if I remove the bell wire from the 1st socket that the main line connects to will that be ok?

      I found this site on telephone wiring is this what the inside of my socket will be like? http://www.telephonesuk.co.uk/images/LJU2_rear.jpg

      Only two connections (5&2) are required for modern phones, terminal 3 which is the bell wire is only required for some very old type ones.

      Removing the wire is very easy, you just pull it out, if needed it can always be put back in just as easily.

      You are best removing it from the master socket side of things because this is where the noise will be introduced.

      The ring wire was required in old telephone circuits to provide power to the large bells in old phones which used 'pulse-dialling'. All modern phones now use 'tone' dialling which is built into the phone handset circuit. The power to ring the large bells was taken from one of the main circuit wires through a capacitor, it is this power 'split' which causes an imbalance in the main circuit, which in turn severely effects the ADSL signal. This is why removing the ring wire in the master socket is sufficient to solve the problem, when it is removed no power is being passed through it to the extensions.
      The other wires running to extensions create a different problem, in that they can act as an aerial, picking up random interference. This is why using a filtered faceplate, which isolates these wires from the ADSL signal, reduces the incidence of noise on the line.
