      I don't want to add any more cables, all my sockets (1 master + 2 extensions) come from a central point (including the master) which is the grey junction box (BT66) which is attached to the outside wall at the front of the house. So if I replaced the 2 extensions with master sockets I would in affect have 3 master sockets enabling me to fit 3 x XTE-2005 so that all 3 are filtered, this way I can plug a phone into any of them with out having to use a micro-filter, would this work?
      If you do not want to fit any more cables then your only option is to replace the 2 extensions with this type of socket :-

      BT Socket, Master, ADSL Filtered With RJ45/RJ11

      However you really should consider fitting an NTE5 where the modem/router is to go(along with filtered faceplate) and run any extensions off the back of that, the reason? You do not have the ADSL signal going all over you house potentially picking up noise. Fitting 3 NTE5's could cause problems in the event of a line fault with regard to the automated line test facilities.

      If you got a NTE2000 Faceplate this filters the ADSL signal for the master and all slaves... It's a simple fit aswell, just replaces the bottom half of the original master socket
