What is this setup?

I finally found the point which the router is connected to. The purple cable is CCS CAT6 and I'm assuming the white box is a 'slave'? Extension? Could poor wiring here be a cause for poor upload speeds but perfectly fine download speeds?

Uncertain if that is a slave without seeing inside the socket. Where does the cabke go back to?

Re: What is this setup?

I honestly have no idea, the purple cable goes up behind a wall, though I assume it's going to the master?

I had taken the front panel off (2 screws) to try and test the test socket though that actually worsened my results to 60 down 0.1 up.

I will take a picture of the inside and post when I can.

Many thanks for your help, also I hope you put jam first like the proper way 😉

 what do we make of this, my untrained eye says that it is a slave / extension. Also the wiring job seems a bit 🤔

Okay that's great to hear, any ideas as to why my uploads are so slow in comparison?

Re: What is this setup?

That is your master socket, as you say it has a test socket. hopefully there is not another socket prior to this one. That cable could go back to a utility cupboard somewhere.

Re: What is this setup?

So is it an extension or the master socket (sorry!) It does have a test socket however the two times I used the test socket I got speed test results of 65down 0.1up (upload was abysmal on test).

many thanks for the help

Re: What is this setup?

That type of socket is a linebox, it is a master socket however unless you can find the other end of the purple there could be another linebox/master prior to this one.
