      No probs. Just be aware, though, that the stats from the extension were pretty horrid so you're best leaving the router at the master socket from now on.

      Edit: I just replaced the faceplate on the master socket (It's the Openreach one with the bell circuit filter) and now I have this which is an improvement:

      Afaik DLM hasn't kicked in yet, my connection has only been active for about 36 hours though, so hopefully it'll start shortly.
      DLM has started working its magic

      I'm pleased with that, anything more will be a bonus though!

      Edit: Wow it's gone up even more! Looks like it's about spot on now, can't see it getting much higher.



      Thanks for your help! I've been using mobile broadband for the past 2 years, this speed is brilliant to have back again.

      To be honest, I don't think this thread serves a useful purpose any more. During the first few years of Sky broadband it did, as the speed you got on connection was the maximum you were going to get with no optimising. Now everyone starts at 4Mb, if the line is up to it, and this speed has little to do with the eventual speed which can be 'up to' five times faster. Maybe the thread should be closed, as redundant.

      It's nice to read back and compare with others to see what you can expect though.
