      Wiring advice for best speed/ping.

      Hello, I have switched on to sky this week and after a few teething problems with my router firmware it has settled down a bit.

      I am now connected at:

      DownStream Connection Speed 10864 kbps
      UpStream Connection Speed 945 kbps
      VPI 0
      VCI 40
      And speedtest (the ping was over 100 on the test before):

      Results from speed.io - Internet DSL Speedtest
      (Copied on 2011-05-07 13:27:55)
      Download: 9074 Kbit/s
      Upload : 852 kbit/s
      Connects : 1393 conn/min
      Ping: 55 ms
      Router stats:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 10864 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 32.0 dB 18.3 dB
      Noise Margin 4.3 dB 14.5 dB
      Now, I am looking to get the most out of the connection and really want to improve the ping as I game a lot, so before asking sky to regrade the line and reduce my max delay I want to make sure the wiring on my end is ok.

      Currently I have a master socket in the hall (non bt one, a shiny black on) and an extension to the living room (where the router is plugged in) and an extension to the bedroom.

      What can I do with these to improve my connection?

      Thanks for the help, Bryan.

      Your noise margin is very low, if you're still in DLM then your speed will probably go down a bit. What are your stats when you plug the router into the master socket with just the filter and no other extensions or equipment plugged in?

      I don't have a NTE5 master, my master just has the main cable in and 2 extensions into the same terminals.

      I think I will order a NTE5 from ADSL nation and replace my non-standard one.

      Lets say I replace my master socket with:
      ADSL Nation LTD.

      Then I have 2 extensions - should I replace both of these with a XTF-68 or just the one the router is connected to?
