      All those of you out there, with filtered faceplates

      This is just a general question asking, anyone out these who has had one of these XTE 2005 filtered faceplates, just to tell me what kind of improvements this faceplate made to your broadband connection, if any, just so i know what type of improvements it can possibly make to a connection, or to telephone quality.

      And is the XTE 2005, really worth it whan all is said and done.

      Any comments to this post will be welcomed.

      There is a very simple test you can do to see if it will make a difference. remove the current faceplate and connect your router to the test socket to see if there is a difference. If there is then a filtered faceplate is worth having, if there is no improvement then nothing you do will make the slightest difference. A filter can not put back what isn't there.

      defo worth it! do a test with your current faceplate removed and then if you see stability and higher speeds then get one!

      can anyone tell me with the line attenuation show, what the rough distance is to the exchange, and using ADSL2 what speed could i possible get from it, as at the moment i get a 8.2Mb connection, this was achived by removing the ring wires in all of the extensions and the master socket, is there any more speed to be had, and what connection speed does the ADSL2 go upto in the real world.

      Go to the tools and tutorials section and put your attentation into the speed tester.

      37db equates to a possible speed of 9-10 Mbps

      with regards to the xte - before it i was syncing at around 2MB, since fitting it now getting a sync of between 3-5MB and downloading at 200-300kb/sec which'll do for me!!

      Re: All those of you out there, with filtered faceplates

      Just fitted the XTE 2005, and it improved download from 3.4 to 5.1 mb/s download (close to 5.7 line max stated by BT), upload not changed very much. I am on Mid 8 mb package. Connected to router with 10 m cable with J11 plugs on each end
      It is useful having separate ADSL and phone lines (and no need for for filters on the phone extension)
      Router is more stable, as essentially it is plugged into the master socket.
