      i need the rj11 to get the wiruing from the phone socket to the router which will be near my pc 15m away.

      i dont need ethrernet as router is near my pc. and i doint want the router near my master socket in the middle of nowhere, itl become an obstacle.

      An rj11 extension to the router is asking for trouble, imho you would be better wiring an extension in cat5e to serve the router.
      Why not use ethernet if the pc is close to the router, it will perform much better than wireless.

      Re: Try your master socket for better results

      im in the same boat here, my router is about 5 meters from my master socket, ive just ordered a xte master faceplate (should be here by the weekend), few questions...

      iveordered a 10m extension cable, i have got some plugs in the garage would it be better cutting down the extension cable to make it as small as possible? i presume if i curled up the excess i didnt need this could open up possibilities for noise etc

      do i need to connect the ringwire to the filtered extensions? i disconnected this a few month back as it increased my snr a little.

      thanks in advance

      How To Set UP Your Wiring To Give You The Best Chance Of Getting The Best Performance Your Line Can Support.

      (1) Get a filter faceplate and fit it as per the Instructions that come with it (you will need to reconnect your ring wires).
      Check that with the test socket exposed, all other telephone sockets have no dial tone.
      Do a check at the test socket with a normal wired phone to ensure there is no noise on the line (dial a digit to kill the dial tone, you should only hear a low hiss)

      (2) Connect router to filter with as short a cable as possible, not just a long one coiled up (my cable is 30cm)

      (3) Connect router to computer by network cable or mains adaptors. Use wireless only as a last resort.

      After viewing this thread I thought hey why not take my faceplate off!

      So I ran speed tests before and after!

      Here you go:

      Before


      After



      I'm thinking now about getting a faceplate that has a microfilter built in?

      Filtered faceplate or NTE5 with bell wire filter is the way to go

      Re: Try your master socket for better results

      Hi. I have just replaced my master socket with an ADSl Nation XTE -2005 and wired my Sky router direct to it, connected to my computer via cat6 Ethernet and gone from 8mb download speed to over 12Mb download speed.

      Will you always see an improvement if you plug directly into the master socket , last time I tried it did diddly squat

      You will nearly always see an improvement if you plug into the Test socket if you have extensions. If you have no extensions, it will make little or no difference, provided your faceplate is not faulty.

      `Not always.

      If you have no phone extensions then it should be the same.

      By using the test socket what you are doing is removing any extra wires etc that run around the house to other extensions and cause interference.

      If you don't have any extensions then you won't have this interference and so you should see no difference.
