Please can anyone help as TalkTalk don't seem to be able to resolve my problem. I have unbearably slow internet (.08mbps) and it's very unstable (dropping out every 10 mins). Talk Talk have sent me a new router but the problem persists. For instance, it took me over an hour to upload these pictures to TinyPic!
I do have quite a complicated set up in the house.
It's quite a large 3 storey house and what I think is the master socket is at the very top in the roof space! I would therefore like to locate the router more centrally in the house but it doesn't work on any of my extensions. I do have a BT ADSL v1.0 faceplate on the master socket so I haven't been using an ADSL filter on the master socket.
I recently bought a replacement NTE5 faceplate with A B terminals (on someone's recommendation) but am unsure how to wire this correctly.
I've tried to take some pictures to show what i'm faced with (apologies for quality but it is in the loft!!) This is the set up:
Pic 1 shows two sockets, the bottom one is what I think is the master socket with the BT adsl faceplate. I'm not sure what the upper socket does, but lots of wires lead into it from the lower socket.
Pic 2 is a close up of the master socket.
Pic 3: Just for the purposes of showing what is there, I removed the inside cover and this is what comes into the lower socket. Attached to this is the inside cover and then the adsl faceplate goes onto that. You can just make out the back of the ADSL faceplate underneath the inside cover in Pic 4
Pic 5 shows what is behind the faceplate of the upper socket and again, just to show what's there, I removed the inside cover of this socket and Pic 6 shows what wires come into the upper socket and Pic 7 shows what some of those wires are attached to on the inside cover.
Please does anyone have any idea how I could sort out this jumble to enable me to locate my router more centrally?
Just to complicate things, I also have an odd little box in my bedroom which looks like this when opened up!
As you can tell, I'm no expert but have moved wires around before (e.g. disconnected the bell wire) and have the proper wiring tool!
Thanks very much in advance for any help.
