      So do you think I should get a XTE-2005 faceplate?

      You gain a mb if I read them properly.

      Yes. As NewsreadeR notes you gain the best part of a meg - you also have an improved noise margin and your line errors are reduced.

      However, what you should also do is get on to Sky and ask them why they have capped you.

      You are on G.DMT which, as you can see has limited your connection speed to ~8000bps. Were you on ADSL2+ you could expect a connection of up to 11500kbps.

      If anyone is syncing at high speeds, but when it comes to downloading something or doing a speed test the figures are low try downloading a file from a fast server. Such as:

      http://download.intervideo.com/windv...nu/WinDVD8.exe

      The best way to test the upload speed is to upload something to an FTP server if possible

      Re: Try your master socket for better results

      Help! I have checked all round my house and can find no split fronted sockets. The BT wire comes into the house into one of those rather ancient looking cream junction boxes on a window sill, then the wiring goes off somewhere. Any ideas?

      BTW this is my first posting - been on Sky Max for about a week. Router arrived in good time and service was activated on the promised day which seems to be more than a lot of disgruntled subscribers can say. Initial connection around 2mbps (although of course meant to be on 16mbps service) but dropped disasterously over a few hours (although never disconnected). Rebooted router, lower connection speed now shown on control panel and speed maintained around 2.2mbps, so looking for reasons why it is so low ... hence need to check speed result when connected to master socket ... wherever it is! Anyone remember that song "There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza"???? Showing my age!

      Re: Try your master socket for better results

      It is not necessarily a split fronted socket that you are looking for.

      It could look like a standard socket. If you open up the all the sockets in your house there should be one with a ring capacitor and a surge arrestor (two components soldered to the board). In any extensions these should not be present. Another way could be to look at the style of cable in each socket (although this may not help if all sockets were installed at the same time).

      Re: Try your master socket for better results

      Hi all

      Just signed up to Sky MAX yesterday (currently with Virgin) and looking forward to reduced prices !!

      Anyhow, been reading the forum and tried to connect my Safecom router to the socket behind the master faceplate and only get a slightly better speed :

      Router connected to extension :

      Speed 2368
      Noise 17
      Att 49

      Router connected directly to socket behind faceplate

      Speed 3232 kbps
      Noise 15.5
      Att 48.0

      So I only get just under a mb increase!!

      Is it worth buying a new faceplate or am I likely to see a better increase using the Sky router ??

      Don't really want to use the Sky router as my existing one has a print server built in (Safecom SWAMRU-54108) and the guy at Sky said it was perfectly acceptable for me to use my own router - they will post out mu username and password.

      Thanks for any help

      Andy

      Re: Try your master socket for better results

      A faceplate will not increase your speed from what you achieve from the test socket. A faceplate is a nice addition to increase the speed at your extension socket.

      It is probably best just to wait and see what happens.

      Do you have the ring wire connected in your extension wiring?
