Hi,

I am stressing out over this hopefully someone can help.

My broadband got connected on the 12/01/12 i have now realised that i have no master socket or if i do i have no idea were it is.

I have 3 sockets in all 1 in the hall and 2 in the living room and none have a test socket. I have a long grey piece of plastic on the outside of the house and i have been told that the master socket would be behind the wall but behind the wall are my kitchen cupboards so i doubt that it will be there as i would have to take my cupboards out.

I have also been told that it may be in the attic as i have a mast on my roof with some wires going in to the roof.

I have put my router stats on skyuser.co.uk and they told me that my line attenuation is really high so i have room for a lot more speed as i am only on 3.7Mbps.

Has anybody else had a problem finding the master socket in there property?

Your only 1 mile from exchange in Arrowe Brook you should be getting a good speed, once your phone extensions are sorted out, you should get a good speed.

Am only getting 9meg, and am less than 1 mile from exchange in Liscard, but when I disconnect all phone extensions I gain an extra 5 meg, but I know what is causing that, and am due to sort it this weekend.
