knightrider:
OK, so I need to find the DMARC point and buy some CAT5e cable (without plugs on the ends) and join that onto onto the CAT5e cable with the gel joiners. On the other end of the CAT5e I need to put an RJ11 plug (using the same 2 wires as I joined onto the two wires at the DMARC), so that can plug directly into the router?

1.) Have I got the right idea above?
2.) Where do I get gel filled joiners from?
3.) The router is safe to be plugged into the raw lines from the demarc point, no filters or anything else (there is a yellow cylinder thing on the back of some of my jack boxes - are they not important?)
4.) which two "pins" on the RJ11 do I use to join the two wires on the CAT5e cable?

I take it we want to eliminate as many plugs/joins/cables etc between the DMARC and the router, and thats why we are not putting a BT plug on the end of the CAT5e and plugging that into the DMARC box?

I hope you don't mind all these questions!!!!

Yea, you have the general idea. "router plugged into raw lines" - that's basically what you want to achieve.

Using the CAT5e cable, hook up the blue pair to incoming Telecom line pair at demarc.
Get a CAT5e socket, hook other end of cable up to this, again on the blue pair - socket will be colour coded.
Get a RJ11/12 - RJ45 lead.
RJ45 end into CAT5e  socket, RJ11/12 end into ADSL router.

Looks like it, although you will need to check it is the Gel Filled version.

After a helpful visit from coffeebaron we have decided to stay put with Go Large. The Baron tested our line at modem and entry point, did the figures and advised us accordingly. He tried a couple of different modems just to be sure. Ay least we know we`re not missing out on anything now (apart from the obvious!)
Thanks coffeebaron. This guy knows his stuff.

No problem - shame we couldn't squeeze out any improvement. Here's that cabinetisation schedule I mentioned. Quite a lot of Henderson will be done during 2009.

I don't see my area on that list at all so 3+ more years of mediocrity for us it looks like... time to leave the country. :)
