      I assume your extension lead is a standard telephone extension. If you replace this with a proper twisted pair extension your reception will improve.

      New connection speed, stats below

      New Sky Broadband Customer - Low Connection Speed-stats-14.03.10.jpg

      My setup for this speed is:

      Master Socket >>> Generic Filter >>> Wireless Router

      Sky re configured my line and viola... great connection speed...

      Just done a speed test on speedtest.net and my results impressed me



      Many thanks to everyone that gave me advice regarding my speed problem.
