The ideal solution would be to fit a filtered faceplate like this.
And then run a RJ11 extension lead from the VDSL socket on the front, to the home hub.
Thanks for that. I think I will go down that route first and see how it goes.
If you opt for the Lindy faceplate, the extension wiring connects to the back, and is filtered, so the broadband cannot get into the wiring.
There are plenty of RJ11 extension cables available,
So after all the messing around it would seem the issue was a faulty micro filter in the bedroom!
Shows you should always start with the obvious things!
Thanks for the help
Not sure how you came to that conclusion?
Its the extension wiring itself which is affecting the broadband speed, however if you said you also had a faulty microfilter on the bedroom socket, then that would not have helped.
At the moment, the only way you are going to get the full speed, is to leave the home hub plugged into the test socket, which will disconnect any extension wiring.
At the moment, with the faceplate back on, your connection speed is poor.
Thanks, I understand now, hopefully it fixes the problem, but sometimes that extra bit of cable can cause signal reflections, depending on how it is terminated.
I assume the bedroom extension comes from the front room socket. Usually they are just daisy chained together?
You could of course fit a filtered faceplate in the lounge, depending on what that socket looks like. It may look neater than a microfilter hanging out of the socket.
I know what you mean, its one of those media panels, and there is not a lot you can do with those
If there is only one cable connected to the master socket faceplate, then the bedroom one is probably connected via that media panel.
