Having thought a little more I was maybe being a bit silly.
Wouldn't it be better to just run a longer Cat5 cable from the filter at the master socket & put the modem/router in the hall (where I want it) ?
The only wall I have to drill through is a partition which divides the converted garage into office (actually my music studio, and where master socket is) and a small utility room.
From the utility room it's only a few metres round the corner to the hallway table.
Am I likely to lose much bandwidth with a 5 - 10m Cat5 cable run ?
Also is it straightforward to remove/fit cat5 plugs, as this would affect the size of hole I have to drill !
I may run this setup straight from the test socket as this appears to give about 1MB larger bandwidth than the mastersocket (even though I've now disconnected the master from the rest of the house sockets).
Not ideal as I have to leave the face plate off the socket ...
PS I now read about HomePlug networking (via mains wiring) - may be this would be another option ... It's all getting a bit confusing !
