      In my master socket (hallway) there is splitter with a wire connected going under the carpet? My mum says that needs to be in so that the other socket (the one we use) can connect.However nothing is attached to the splitter .

      So from your master socket you have a plug in extension running to another socket where the filter and splitter are plugged in? If so you will have to plug it into a filter, then plug in your extension. Your router will have to be plugged into the filter at the master socket.

      Normal flat telephone extensions are disastrous for broadband. If you have to use an extension like this, then get one made up with twisted core cable, such as this - CW1308 Twisted Pair Telephone Cable, 10M White The supplier will make one up to your specifications.

      Before your mother goes to any expense, plug your router into the Master socket, the Test socket if you have one, with nothing else connected. This will show what your true potential speed is and you can then decide if changes are worth it.
