Internet problems – Simple Master Socket checks

I’ve been told that the Broadband router has to be plugged into the master socket and not an extension. Is this true?

I’ve heard people tell me that BT and Sky insist that the Broadband Hub or Router must be plugged into the master socket. In most cases this is rubbish. Provided you don’t have any faults with your telephone extension wiring, your router will work anywhere in the house, on any socket! Think – it doesn’t matter about the length of the extension wire – your line has already travelled from the telephone exchange down a mile of cable. Nine times out of ten, a few extra metres isn’t going to make the slightest bit of difference to your Internet connection. With BT Infinity your Broadband Internet speed will be much higher. If the telephone extension sockets in your house aren’t wired correctly it will have a bigger impact on your broadband speed than on a conventional broadband line. If you want to maximise your broadband connection speed, consider doing away with unnecessary unused extension sockets and untidy wiring. Simplify the telephone extension wiring in your house, and consider using a modern cordless phone with multiple handsets.
