And you've definitely connected the router extension to the unfiltered connectors on the replacement master socket faceplate?
Try remaking the connections - with a Krone tool of course.

i will try connecting the old faceplate up, and the extension to that, see if that makes it any better.

you have already answered your own question really. you get max capability at the master but from the cabling upto the other extension you get less signal. Do you have a phone plugged in on the extension? Is it filtered?
If so then you know that it is an issue with the extension itself. I would check the quality of the cable, check for any kinks etc.

Changed the master faceplate back to the BT one, still the same upstairs, i would say it is the wire, so will have to relay some! However, is it normal that when i connect the router to the test socket i get 13mb instead of 10 that i get on adsl nation faceplate?

Re wired the extension using CAT5-E cabling! Works perfectly

With the ADSL Nation face plate?~ Never, ever, argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience ~

Yep, Cat5 connected to the A and B terminals on the back of the plate to an extension upstairs!
