    Doh - filter - what filter

    Just moved from cable to Sky Broadband (to get Sky+ box/Sky Sports) and needed to put a telephone extension in main server room (wife calls it the spare bedroom ) as that's where all my cables go to.

    When I re-plugged in the Sky router I noticed I was only geting 1.7MBs instead of the 6.7MBs I'd got when it was plugged into the master socket in the living room.

    Since I finished off the extension wiring in the dark - I thought I must have done something nasty to the cable

    It was only when someone rang us this morning and I couldn't hear them properly due to some interference on the line did the light go on - I'd forgotten to put a microfilter in the circuit back in the living room

    regards
    Simon

    PS And to think that people pay me to come to their house and sort out their broadband problems

    Sounds like something I would do. I have currently got into the terrible habit of when I replace hard drives I take the old one out, replace with a new one screw the case back up without connecting the cables.

    I think I have only done something like that once when I was putting a new hard drive in as a slave and forgot to change the jumper pins on it and ever since then I always stick the jumper pin either on the correct pins that or set it so that it is on auto so it swaps for me ( mostly the latter ).

    Ive only had Cable until now and am with www.bethere.co.uk and there speeds seem to be decent along with a decent price.

    Always room for error though
