Re: BT infinity 2

Just to confirm, there was no connection in the test socket, but there is otherwise?

There is a phone connection via the master socket.   But could not get the router to work with the ADSL  filter when plugged into the master socket.

Re: BT infinity 2

Sounds like an incorrectly wired master socket, as a microfilter plugged into the test socket, and the phone and home hub plugged into the microfilter, should work, as that would be the normal default for someone without a filtered socket.

It may take a minute or so for the home hub to sync up.

Re: BT infinity 2

Does it matter that the picture posted doesnt look like the bt socket I've got?  Mine has a rj11 input on the top and a phone connection under it.   Its been working great for the couple of years its been in, but just lately the speed has dropped.

That picture simply shows what it looks like without the filtered faceplate which is fitted over the top. That is what you removed to get to the test socket I hope. So that is the way you should run the test.

This is what you have when you put it all back together again.
