Phone is active, the broadband is active on 20th. Previous owners must have had broadband as they left a few filters plugged in to the various extension sockets. I am still trying to fathom what I need to do.
The master socket is in the cupboard in the hallway but does not have a lower part that can be removed, just a standard square faceplate, there are 4 extensions around the flat (1 each bedroom and 1 either side of living room). I am still not entire sure where I want it, I can have the master as one of the 2 living room sockets, or in the big bedroom (trying to work out which place to put my desk and pc! Not sure if living room is a good place or not).
I am thinking I can simply unplug all the phones and use the current master socket with a filter just to test the speed and purely use wifi for a while when deciding final location. I might even be able to use a filter on the extension sockets and see what speed I can get via them, might get lucky and still get a good speed from it and not need to do anything!
Once I decide where I need the master socket, as I understand it, an engineer could re-wire the existing master to make my chosen socket the master without having to run any cables, and simply disconnect all the other extensions that I won't really need (and will likely cause issues) as I can just use DECT anyway. Whatever way it's done I want the best broadband speed I can get from it.
