Have just upgraded to MAX on Sky and also tested the master socket - found that my speed went from 2.9 to 3.5 - I know it is not an enormous jump, but given the distance from Exchange I was pretty pleased.
So - I have ordered BT ADSL Adaptor Front Plate for NTE5.. but am a little confused...
We have Sky+ downstairs - currently connected to Master Socket via standard telephone extension.. also off of this extension is the Sky Router. We also have a phone plugged in downstairs in the hall and another Sky box plugged in upstairs in the bedroom - off a telephone extension.
If I fit the new Front Plate to the Master Socket what happens to the Sky box upstairs/SKY+ box downstairs. These currently have the Microfilters on them.. Do I remove these Microfilters? My plan is to fit the plate - then run a RJ11/45 to the router instead of using telephone extension. Sorry for noob question - is it not easier to pay BT to come in and rewire all of this lol..

if you have master socket filtered you don't need filters on other sockets and yes make sure router is not on any extension

The front faceplate has BT & ADSL socket-no filters required there. Anything connected to 2,3 & 5 on the REAR is also filtered, so again, no filters required BUT the ADSL signal is now gone. If you wanted to run an extension for ADSL you would need a 6 way faceplate & connect that extension to A & B on the rear. You can either do this or install the router where the master socket is & run an ethernet cable to your PC(s). If not hard wiring an extension for ADSL(ie, plugging into FRONT ADSL port on faceplate) then you would need an RJ45/RJ11 to RJ11 cable. The NTE2000 extension kit also has prvision for this as it is fitted with an RJ45 plug at one end(which we chop off if hard wiring)
