      Well thats a bit better, and Im glad you got yourself re-connected at that outside box to the test socket. The rest is just a matter of connecting the numbered terminals on the filter faceplate (dont connect anything to A and B terminals on the filter faceplate if it has these) to the rest of your sockets.

      When this is complete, yes you can remove all the old plug in filters, and do not forget to remove the components from the master you replaced downstairs (just clip them from the circuit board)

      I must admit I'm glad to see you back on-line, I always worry that having started something like this, that you may run into unforseen problems and get stuck, but not this time so well done Gary

      Re: Hope it gets better!!

      Got slightly confused when on the filter faceplate i saw possible connections for 2/3 and 5, then above it also had possible connections for ADSL, any idea's what this is about?

      Thanks for your help again

      You'er only interested in the connections marked 2, 3, and 5. The others are for an ADSL enabled extension, which as you are pluging the router directly into the socket on the filter faceplate, you do not need.

      Yes that is a master, cut out the yellow, blue, and the small resistor from the board. the resistor is at the side next to the socket.

      How is it all going Gary?

      Nice set of stats. Well done Gary. There is room for an increase in upstream, but if you are happy you can leave it. In any case I would leave well alone for a couple of days to see how it settles down. So long as the noise margin does not drop too much you should be o.k.

      they always forget the upstream more than likely a tier 1 agent you spoke to :/
