Remove the connections to pins 3 and 4.

Haven't seen one of these before must be the cost reduced faceplate with no pins 1 and 6.

This is interesting just today I found my master socket (or possibly one on 2 master sockets!) tucked away in the back of a storage area at the top of the house and it is similar to the photograph above. The main difference is it does not have a socket on the front ! i.e. a cable is connected to the front half which seems to go to a distribution box which connects to the various extensions around the house.
It had 3 wires connected to it (IIRC to 1,2 and 5) so I disconnected the 3rd one leaving only 2 and 5 connected.

Well i removed wires from 3 and 4 in both sockets, no difference though.

Have a look at your basic router stats and post the results, I'm envious of your speed already though.

Heres my stats. My SNR is much lower than when i was on Connect. Was around 15...
Connection Speed 15241 kbps 764 kbps
Line Attenuation 30.0 db 16.7 db
Noise Margin 7.1 db 13.0 db

Is that with the router plugged into the test socket or an extension?
If its the latter try again using the test socket.
As I understand it Connect is up to 8mbps, so your noise margin figure will be greater than it will be at 16mbps or so.
Looks like it may be an idea to post your full stats for those more knowledgable than me to analyse. have the router running for a good few hours before you collect the stats to give a better idea of the noise on your line.

Thats with everything all plugged in. Test socket has just an extra decible and same speed, so i dont know lol.

Help wanted please.
I have a new house and am new to ADSL (the old one was cable).
BT have fitted a 2 part master socket last week (i.e. you unscrew the face plate to reveal 4 punchdown points and 2 more screws. Remove these and the rest of the plate comes off the wall revealing 2 screw down connections - this sort of plate has been described on another thred that I can't find). The blue and blue/white wires have been terminated on the screw terminals on the main inner plate. They have left 4 wires unterminated (orange, white/orange, green and white/green).
The builders have installed Cat5 diasy chained points throught the house (why diasy chained I have no idea) including the study. I want to put my ADSL router there. I know I will need to use a mod tap to convert the RJ45 point to a BT jack and then use a microfilter to split to the an RJ11 for the ADSL modem and BT point.
Question is what 4 wires of the 8 wires going round the house do I need to connect on the front part of the BT master socket (4 punchdown points numbered 2 to 5) ?
I know this will depend on how the installers of the RJ45 sockets in the house have terminated the points. I have had one of these off the wall an here is what I found - a black block that takes 4 terminations on the left and right hand sides (looking at the back of the wall plate) with 2 wires of the same colour terminated in each (hence the daisychain between points) -
Not sure which pins these refer to of the RJ45 socket.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
