      Duh, told you I'm a dumb user. Yes, the phone extensions are dead when plugged into the test socket.

      So, first I'll try a filtered face plate, and if that's still no good I'll replace the NTE5. Does that sound like the sensible approach?

      If the extensions go dead then it's all wired correctly. Are these extensions long? That is one hell of a drop off you are getting so my money would be on the NTE5 itself. If you want a decent cheap ADSL faceplate this one is ideal.

      Yes that is the best way to go. Fitting the faceplate is easy, all you need to do is remove the wires from the old faceplate and put them on the numbered terminals of the new one. Get a disposable tool to replace the wires, they are only a few pence.

      Hey guys, just wanted to post an update.
      I received and fitted a split faceplate yesterday, as per neilmcl's recommendation: http://www.adslnation.com/phpapps/ca...products_id=90

      My speed jumped immediately from 3.8Mbps to around 7Mbps, which is nearly twice the speed and is very nearly that I get when plugged into the test socket. So, I'm happy with that for now, and thanks very much to all those who took the time to suggest advice. Cheers

      You may find that when your line is upgraded to ADSL2+, you may get a bit more. Keep your eye on your stats, just in case it goes the other way.
