yes rog dee as you said is what i said (should not skim read) the filtered faceplate solution means that the socket in the hall looks like a normal socket and the wiring for the computer socket comes off the terminals inside and then to another socket as required. the filtered master doesnt have anything other than a phone (if requred) plugged in but even then extension sockets for phone only can be taken from the master to where ever as required
Hope I have not caused any offence three legs, definitely not my intention, just a newbie trying to understand.
Next part of my enquiry:
If Openreach install master socket and I take that back to the office as I described previously, without replacing the faceplate but via an extension wired through structure of my building. Is it then correct that I still need to use a micro filter between master socket and the router and at any other telephone points in the house? The use of a replacement ‘split’ faceplate on the master socket would then not require the use of micro filters?
As ever I appreciate all your help.
(There have been some replies to me that should have been directly to yourself, but I expect you have read them).
The solution of taking wires from the insides of the master is not perfect. It is the next best thing. As jazbuzzard said, "I would agree, you want to have the shortest possible distance between where the line comes into your house, your master socket and then the ADSL/VDSL modem for maximum speed"
It does avoid the ethernet socket in the hall, and allow you to have the router in your office. There would be a small performance loss and more risk of electromagnetic noise in the house affecting the signal from the cabinet to the router. That noise if present could affect the speed quite a bit.
If you do go that way however, your pre-wiring should preferably ducted, not just go through drill holes, and be CAT6. CW1308 standard phone cable would do, but not ordinary house wiring electric cabling
