... but all my kit is nowhere near my master socket ....
Are you aware a "Home Wiring Solution" (which was originally called a Data Extension Cable
) is available free. Some ISPs order it for you automatically in case it is needed. The others you have to request it when you order.
If that is ordered the engineer can site the modem up to 30 metres from the master socket, and most of them will also use it to move the master socket if you would prefer that. The cabling can be internal or external to the building.
