Ok, his estimates look reasonable. What worries me is still the wiring, and I'd love to see the line stats
, my third request earlier. From what you've now posted I wouldn't be surprised if they show that wiring is messing things up.
I must be being really dense as I don't understand that diagram at all. It doesn't seem to agree with your original post, and what is a "Sky Extension"? Something with a Sky box on it? There's no mention of phones either.
How does the daisy-chaining work? Or don't you really mean daisy-chaining?
I think what you are now saying is one of three possibilities.
1) that there is a simple 2-way line splitter in the master socket, with a plug-in line extension cable in each socket of that. At the other ends, one has a dangly filter feeding the router and a Sky box, the other has a dangly filter feeding a Sky box.
2) the same 2-way splitter in the master socket, one plug-in cable as in (1) feeding the router and a Sky box, and the other socket having a dangly filter feeding a Sky box.
3) a plug-in extension cable into the master socket, at the end of which cable is a dangly filter feeding the router and a second plug-in cable which ends up feeding a Sky box.
What's worrying me
is I'm reckoning on there being a few unfiltered ring/bell-wires there, possibly two Sky boxes, and that combination could crucify his service. (Dangly filters don't filter the ring wire present in most extension cables).
It possibly already is doing on his Plusnet connection. Do we know what speeds he gets, or just that it's supposed to be "up to 8Mbps"?
