      If you still pay line rental to BT then you cannot touch the incoming wires, they belong to BT, you can only rewire from the master socket inside your property.

      Have you tried fitting your router into the test socket if you have one, it is situated behind the bottom of the master socket (which should be the first socket fitted to the incoming wire). This should give you a best case senario with no extensions connected, check yur stats before and after.

      Failing that, if your main telephone cable coming into the house is damaged you will have to deal with BT, the best way you could do this is to phone with a voice fault and not mention the ADSL side of things, once the engineer is on-site give him tea, coffee, bacon butties and point out where the damage is.

      If your stats improve at the master socket then you should leave your router fitted as close as you can and either run a network cable to your PC or you could do what I do and use homeplugs.

      we no longer pay bt line rental this is now with sky and there is no line rental.line running into house is well lets say the worse for ware.id like to redo it and put a master socket into my bedroom rather than any exstensions.

      BT still own the line so you'd need to call Sky to get BT involved to change the incoming line...
