Try your master socket for better results
This is a discussion on Try your master socket for better results within the Cabling and faceplate help forums, part of the Sky Broadband help and support category; which testsite did you try?...

which testsite did you try?~ Never, ever, argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience ~

speedtest.net....also did another one with dslreports.com and actually got dl 25kb/s and ul 20kb/s. router is plugged in master socket by front door and i am using the wireless connection on my laptop...have also tried the optimizer, think i might have to ring them up in the morning. been like this all week, never get on average more than 1mb speed.
router is plugged in normal way using filter.(switched it back)

Have you tried setting the wireless to auto?
Have you got a firewall you can just try disabling while you test again? (remember to put back on though)

nice tip about the auto, done 2 tests with auto option and got 4224kb/s and 3446kb/s dl speeds, then went back and changed back to g only and did the test again and dl speed went to 1966kb/s.

leave it on auto then~ Never, ever, argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience ~

Does all of this not depend on what speed your telephone line can get as well?

Works for me as well
Just tried connecting into my master socket and my speed has gone up from
3md to 4mb, even though Sky said that I could only get 2.5MB on my line !

1. The equipment at your local exchange. If it's not LLU'd to Sky (Easynet) then you won't get the 16Mb/s service. You can't do much about this as a customer.
2. Your distance from the exchange in terms of line length, which pretty much determines the attenuation being talked about here. Get more than a couple of Km away and the speeds start to drop away quite quickly with distance. Again, you can't do much about it other than move nearer!
3. The SNR margin, which is something you can do something about by ensuring there's as little radio frequency interference picked up by your internal telephone wiring as possible. The SNR margin is the Signal To Noise Ratio margin, the amount of noise on the line versus the amount of ADSL signal. Ideally this should be big. As speed increases, this ratio gets smaller, once it gets below about 7db (in my case anyway) the noise starts to swamp the signal and the data gets corrupted. You see this as speed taking a nosedive. That's why if you're getting poor speeds it's a good idea to check your stats for a low SNR margin. Reboot the router and it'll reconnect, possibly at a lower sync speed but higher SNR margin which will ensure that most of the data isn't corrupted.
Blimey, is that the time!? I've got to go teach some grannies to suck eggs....Connection Speed 13753 kbps Down - 766 kbps UpLine Attenuation 33.5 db Down - 18.7 db UpNoise Margin 7.0 db Down - 11.6 db Up

Hi there guys, i have a feeling this might be a silly question to ask but i wont know the answer unless i do.
I currently have 2 pc's connected by ethernet upstairs on an extension socket and getting these figures from the router:
Connection Speed 3136 kbps 384 kbps
Line Attenuation 53.0 db 31.5 db
Noise Margin 10.0 db 13.0 db
When i connect into the master socket the attenuation and noise margin are very similar but my connection speed jumps to 6mb. So that was a great result, what i was wondering was if i fit a new faceplate but still use the upstairs extension for my modem will i be back to the 3mb connection or could it possibly improve it some? Or with the new faceplate on will the extension not even work anymore for adsl?

With the ADSL nation faceplate you can wire in your extension as you would on the BT faceplate, and the faceplace has a built in microfilter. That means that you should still get the speed inprovement.
