      Hi Gazwozhere.
      It's impossible to answer your question because I do not know the levels of noise in your home.
      But the best way to connect router to the faceplate filter is with the shortest cable you can, and then cable/mains network/ wireless, to the computer.

      Tests where done and posted here previously,

      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/speed...w-sky-max.html

      1st test was on upstairs extension
      2nd test was using the test socket
      3rd test i wanted to see if using master socket was any better then using the extension socket, but was roughly the same.

      Basicly just wondering out of the 2 options in my previous post which would be better, as for now im not planing on wireing up stuff, in the near future maybe.

      Report noisy voice calls to BT. Don't mention ADSL and don't mention you've done a 17070 test as I don't believe the general public are supposed to call that.

      In my experience and from what I've read, BT often say there's no problem when there clearly is. It would be a cost saving thing. i.e. a small amount of noise doesn't matter on a voice call so why spend money to fix it. Persevere and say you're not happy. They'll then send an engineer out and chances are he/she will replace that old socket you describe free of charge. BUT, remember, if BT can't find a fault or the fault is with your wiring and equipment rather than theirs, they can and sometimes do make a charge. Keep on the right side of the engineer and all should be well.
      I report a fault by BT using the free 151 number, but there was a long wait, so I used the rang back option. Then around 18:40 this evening, BT called me back - 0800 028 5085 number on my mobile and the woman called "Lucy". I explained to her that sometimes I hear crackles/hisses while I'm talking on the phone, and sometimes its clear and sometimes I hear pops/humming while I'm using the phone. I thought that itís my phone, so I disconnect all the phones, phone extensions, then I try it with only one corded phone, but itís still having the same problem, even the same with other corded phones. Even my downstairs neighbor experiencing the same problem as me. Then she said that there are no faults found on your phone line. Also, she explained some non-sense like "Itís the weather, like the rain and the windy interfering with your phone copper wire outside your house, and that's what is causing the crackles/hisses or other noises that you're experiencing at the moment."

      Even, she suggested that I should disconnect all the phones and extensions, leave the phone socket free - unplugged for half a hour, then plug your phone back in and see the problem has cleared. Otherwise, if not, I'll arrange an engineer to come to yours and check your equipment, but they'll charge me £116 for a call out fee.

      She kept going on about testing your master socket, explaining how to open the horizontal face plate, and I kept going on saying that I don't BT standard Master socket, I have the old fashion smaller phone socket, but she ignore me and kept going on about testing the BT standard master phone socket, I ended the call by saying "Ok, I'll try it tonight before I go to bed and after work tomorrow and I'll let you know how it go?"

      What do you think of all this? I think they are sloppy, not even a care in the world. My phone line been there since 1973, so that must be having very old phone wiring!!

      This morning, I decided to take a few pictures of my external phone line to the phone box outside my house. My BT phone connection box is the one on the top black box - centred.

      Here they are as follows:

      i had a similar issue with my line. BT came out first and found no fault. then a second call was booked and this time the fault was present at the time and the engineer traced it to the drop cable that comes from the pole to the house. he replaced that and the audible noise on the line dissappeared and my snr improved immediately.

      So did you send it back for a replacement or just decide it wasn't worth it ?

      Re: ADSL Nation NTE-2005 Master face plate

      To be honest i didn't think is was worth sending back when it was just as easy to plug in a filter as my box is the old type without a master socket.
