      Hiya - I will try and put up a pic tomorrow of my socket that has the wire coming in from the outside - looking through the Clarity UK website I'm sure mine isn't a BT Master Socket. Hopefully someone can clarify for me.

      What I don't understand is how Homechoice (previous ISP) manged to deliver a higher speed and more consistant service (only had to reboot router every couple of months if that) using the exact same wiring I use now for the Sky broadband.

      Oh OK. You've got an old socket by the sounds of it so no test socket. An NTE5 mastersocket is in two halves - the upper is blank and the lower has the socket.

      ADSL and ASDL2+ have different characteristics and handle noise/attenuation differently. Just the characteristics of your line I guess?

      I do.
      It's blank. The reason it doesn't work in the sky firmware is because the telnet daemon uses /bin/login which won't like the blank password. The URL hack tells the daemon to shell out straight to a, well, shell instead. Simple really!

      Ah - thanks! I think you told us that before when you first came up with the URL injection hack for telnet

      Well, I think Jose should take the credit for the url hack. All I did was look at the source code for the telnet daemon so see how to make it stop asking for a password and produce a url to do this. Jose had already done the hard work by this stage.
