In reply to a post by yarwell:
see if it's any better to the standard ADSL v1 that the BT engineer installed


unlikely, but I wouldn't rule it out.


Thanks phil smile
I've been having a few problems of late and will be looking into what new hardware is out there to see if things can be improved in any way not just for myself but for the whole estate

Any idea how old that article you've linked to is ? There's no date on it although the files are dated 22 October 2010. The site doesn't seem to be complete either.
Unfortunately no. It's one I came across a while ago. From memory I think it would have been late 2010 - I think it was someone over on iDNetters who did the tests. Couldn't say for sure.
In reply to a post by fredfox:
I wonder if the parts and design of any of the filters the person tested have changed since October 2010 ?
They may well have done although tbh I doubt there's been any significant change. Phil Yarwell might have some more up to date info.

My preference for the passive filters came about after I had two of the XTE-2005 faceplates fail - one mine and one I bought for a neighbour. They were replaced without question and that said, many people on here have had no trouble with them so maybe they were from a bad batch. YMMV of course. smile

if you compare the faceplate filtered performance with the router only connected to the test socket then you have a measure of the potential improvement (if any).

Even the best filter can't beat a disconnected telephone / wiring setup.

I did once get a useful benefit from a twisted pair RJ11 cable, but only once. There were several power supplies close by and the line was about 65 dB when the sun set the sync dropped but the RJ11 allowed it to stay in sync. (Fixed speed 512k).

Agreed Phil
I'm just upgrading all my equipment house sockets mains blocks etc as there around 20 years old now my RFI master plug mains blocks have done very well over the years but they don't make them any more just those that have spike protection no RFI so will have to source out the other brand like Express Pro or i may go for this which i do know first hand on is excellent but expensive

I have known Russ for around 30 years his gear is no doubt is the very best in the world and is very Japanese orientated to a level only ever seen by Japan but at every conference it's always magical to see him bring to life something very simple like a radio but by just using one of his mains leads it completely transforms it like magic
