Noooooo, nooo! I really don't want to turn my living room into a data centre!!
Au contraire given it's only one piece and not two and you can buy a 10 or 15m RJ11 cable it would hide very nicely behind a sofa or any other suitable piece of objet d'art
However if it's a case of "she who must be obeyed" eh? I know the feeling - Horace Rumpole and I share a lot in common!
Well, the engineer arrived at 8:05 this morning. He looked a bit askance at the master socket, but was very helpful. He has moved the master to the extension in the living room, made up a 10m extension and put the modem and hub on the windowsill by the computer, just like the old hub. Very much like several people on this forum suggested. Unfortunately, he had to disconnect all the other phone extensions that were supplied from the old master socket, but SWMBO has accepted that.
All is now complete and he's left. So far, it seems like it is a really successful conclusion!

Thanks to all in the forum who replied to my question.
That's great news
And thank you for updating us all with the outcome.
The decision to go for it was a bit "touch and go" a few posts back.... lol.
