      if you click the link in my previous post then it will show you what a test socket looks like (its the first socket where you tellephone cables comes in from outside) if you remove the 2 screws holding the front faceplate in there will be another socket in there you can connect your filter to and connect your router up to it there.

      Edit- see you changed your post so presume you get it now

      you dont need to be in london to get good speed, i like in Stoke and get 20Mb

      try it in your test socket and see what the results are, your line attenuation normally gives around 8Mb so your not looking to bad at 5 but might be able to squeeze a little more out from using your master socket if possible (using the test socket will prove this or not)

      Try the test socket, link with details below and post the result.
      Also at the same time if you have any extensions, make sure that there is not a wire/s connected to terminal 3 on the back of the master socket faceplate as these are not required, make sure just terminal 2 & 5 are connected.
