      While you are connected to the test socket make sure any wires connected to terminal 3 on the faceplate are disconnected.

      If there is a difference and there should be, you would benifit froma filtered faceplate to cut out the noise.

      Ok so I've tried it, I've managed to get it up but just a tiny little bit. I also added a micro filter which added a bit of speed but still no way near enough.

      What do you mean, weren't you using one before?

      Would you like me to take a picture of the socket?

      The grey thing is just a cover to keep the cables neat.

      That doesn't look like your master socket. Do you have an NTE5 type master socket like the one pictured in the link? How to test your ADSL in the Master Socket

      Look for where your external line enters the property and follow it to the master socket.

      If so, please connect your router to the test socket inside as described above.

      I did try that, I put the modem in the main socket and it went the exact same speed. I'm only 18 I know quite allot about general computer stuff but not this stuff.
