      Speed and wiring help

      Can anyone explain this - bought new faceplate from Adsl nation for master socket and fitted - Speed on Test socket behind is approx 15200, Speed plugged into front of new faceplate is 12500 BUT speed plugged in to extension upstairs(before rewiring with cat5 and doing as below) is 15200, would have thought that plugged in to front of new faceplate would have been faster speed than plugged into extension ??!!

      Have now hardwired Cat5 cable into back of Adslnation faceplate on unflltered side using A & B terminals to use as a dedicated line for the router only as it is not practical for me to have the router plugged into the front of the master socket as it is in the hallway by the front door with no nearby socket. I beleive that this is the next best solution as the hardwired Cat5 has an RJ11 on the end which then plugs directly into the router, thus I have created a direct cable from the master socket to the router with no extensions, only difference to plugging into the master is that the cable is obviously a little longer. My other extensions for phone have been hardwired to other filtered side of Adslnation faceplate using terminals 2 and 5.

      Please confirm if this seems the best solution. many thanks

      Re: Speed and wiring help

      When you connected the faceplate up, did it have 3 wires going off on the left hand side?

      ie pins 2 3 and 5?

      If so try just using 2 and 5 - that should sort it

      Thanks, actually disconnected pin 3 a while ago when having nosie problems and this made such a big difference, think everyone should be advised of this as standard, especially as modern phones have the ring on the phone and donot need this wire connected.

      Re: Speed and wiring help

      Well if you have done that, then theoretically the speed should be the same in the master socket (front) as the test socket (behind)

      If you are hard wiring the faceplate you should be fine I think anyway
