Please will you post the results from a BT Performance Test, preferably done with a wired connection, not wireless.

Results are as follows. Theses are not from the master socket as it is impossible for me to test a wired connection from the master socket.

Wired

Download speedachieved during the test was - 2999 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :4640 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 7150 Kbps

Wireless

Download speedachieved during the test was - 3637 Kbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
Additional Information:
Your DSL Connection Rate :4640 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
IP Profile for your line is - 4000 Kbps

So I'm not getting speeds in the range of 0.12 Mbps but my IP Profile is different. I had to wait an hour between tests but is there any reason for that to change?

Something not good there, but I'm just getting through a very bad cold so not thinking well.

The IP Profile fell after the first test because the connection speed was 4640kbps and you must have done the test in the few minutes it takes for the profile to fall.

As the first one was profile 7150, your previous connection must have beem 8128kbps. So we need to know why it connected more slowly.

When I did those two tests (on a slave socket) I had to wait an hour between them as the site wouldn't allow more than one per hour. All I did was pull the network cable out.

Although, when I put the router back in it's normal place on the master socket I did another speed test on www.speedtest.net and wham, the speed was back to about 0.8Mbps and before someone say's it was the site, I did the same test right before I moved the router back and it was still over 3 Mbps.

This would point to it possibly being the location of the router but why would it only have started since the weekend! The channel on the router was set to 6 so I tried 11 but still the same.

Any suggestions?
