      A quick note, if that does not yield any improvement, or not much improvement an ADSL faceplate on the new master socket would be the next option.
      I've decided to do that now while I'm at it, (in for a penny in for a pound)
      I'll soon order a XTE-2005 Master Faceplate from adsl nation unless anybody tells me different.
      I'll then wire the extension if I decide I do need it to the filtered side of that.
      Then I'll use cat5 from the routers new location to an 8 port switch I already have which will replace where the router was.
      Sounds like a plan to me?

      Just to make sure you realise that the XTE-2005 can only be fitted to an NTE5 master socket.

      I was just at this moment looking into that
      I suppose it would be better to replace it with a NTE-5
      master any way as nothing adsl nation supplies has any capacitors for lightning protection, or over voltage protection.
      I have a spare NTE-5 master sat in front of me so that isn't a problem.
      Would this be the best way to do it?
      I've also gotten hold of a IDC tool

      To replace your master socket is against your terms of service with BT. BT can tell if the master socket has not been done by them because it will not have the BT logo on. You can do so at your own risk. If the NTE5 you have has the BT logo on then great, if not you could always swap it with the one BT installed as the new master.

      Oh and in answer to your question yes that would be the best thing to do. Have an NTE5 master socket as soon as the wires enter your home, add an XTE-2005 faceplate. Then if you do want to have an ADSL extension to save having to put your router next to the master you can hardwire one into the back of the faceplate.
