D3ADLYTuna: The socket had a big M in the top right corner. There are only two wires with smaller cores coming into this socket. It is the classic older phone jack socket in the protruding square white box. 

Walking around the property the only thing I can see in terms of the ETP is a small ish black wire coming from the power pole to the house, It ends in the corner and is about 2m lower on the pole than the power wires to the property. No white boxes around the property and no obvious wiring coming up from the ground. 

I will see if i can convince the landlord to install the master filter.


The terms 2 wiring or 3 wiring refer to the "smaller cores" a sheath with wires is a cable.

The white box if present would have been at the house end of the black aerial cable.

I would connect the live pair to the master and try the modem by itself in that. Double check that no other jack is working, the Master may not be the point that the outside line connects to 1st. That will show how the modem will perform without the influence of any other internal wiring. If you get an improvement then a filter and reconnecting the other jacks is next. No improvement then you have other issues.

Since you're using a Fritz!box can you post the bitloading graph on here? It would be interesting to see how bad it is.

Is that what you are after?

I have just crimped together the two orange cables and the white and orange white cable at what i think is the master jack. Nothing has changed in terms of performance.

Bump, I have bridged the master socket and have disconnected all the other sockets in the house. Any further Ideas as my landlord wants to get a tech out and is telling me I have to pay if there is no fault found. I would rather get things sorted from someone on here than having to call some random.

Are there any chorus techs on here who would be willing to help out for some beer/coffee/scotch or the like.
Mainly to test the cabling at the ETP on the house. And perhaps test the amps and volts and what not at the sockets throughout the house plus what ever else you guys do.

Willing to bribe, but im pretty poor so I would rather help you in exchange haha.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Landlord should be telling you that you have to pay regardless.

In anycase, best course of action is to go thru your ISP to get chorus to come and fix it or put a splitter in, thatway you can totally claim ignorance to them doing anything to the wiring and just say you told them to fix the internet.
