Yeah, it's valid but not what you want. You need a master socket - there's something wrong with your wiring. Can you remove the cobwebs and post another pic?

Looks to me like the only two wires that come into the house are solid blue and solid white.... I htought they were meant to be blue and white striped?

I think the striped wires are for internal connections. Solid colours are external.

I think the top RH of this pic shows the connections of external to internal: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5573989512...

Where does the orange ring wire come from?

I think the orange ring wire must only ever have been connected internally.

As far as I can see the only box with solid blue and solid white wires with no striped wires is the first one we looked at.

The DSL connection seems to have settled to:

DSL Connection Details

Downstream Rate: 947 kbps
Upstream Rate: 599 kbps

Where do we go from here?

Where do we go from here?
Which socket is the router connected to?
Which sockets is the orange wire connect to?
How many other devices are connected to the phone line - phones, sky boxes, etc?
And are they all filtered?

I had moved the router to what we thought was the master socket but have put it back where it was before.

The orange wires were connected to all the internal sockets but I have disconnected all of them.

None. One phone which is Dect so all the other phones do not need to be plugged in and one modem is all there is.

Still need to check the connection from the BT pair to the "network" cable that's used to feed your sockets. Check that the crimp is sound. Take a photo clearly showing the wires going into both jelly crimps.
Once that's been shown to be satisfactory, the next step is to identify the very first socket, ensure its a master, disconnect all wires from it other than the incoming pair and plug in router to check stats

Confused again.... Where would I find the jelly crimps and what do they look like? The black and grey cables meet as shown in the pix and then go up the walls into the ceiling. Then we have the sockets as shown in the pix. If there is anything else it must be between the ground floor ceiling and the first floor floor.

I don't think I can pull up the floor for this...... wife would be less than happy.

Am I missing something?

WG

Where are you located in the UK? Anywhere near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk? If yes, I'd be willing to come with my test equipment, tool-kit and have a look
