Alright lads, OP here
Cheers for your advice, I've got VDSL from BT with the Home hub 5, from what I can gather from the googling and the look of my master socket it's filtering out the broadband before it gets to the extension wiring
I have considered trying to rerun the wires with actual Ethernet cable however given the location of the master and the Sheer distance and route it must take to get to my room(there's a good chance it's partially external) that's a no go, I was hoping for a cheap bodge with the phone wiring really since I won't make use of it.
I mainly wanted to have Ethernet in my bedroom because it's what I'm used to but I've done some tests and it seems the WiFi isn't actually that bad, certainly I appear able to max out my internet connection with it(76Mbs) which was a nice surprise
My secondary reason was as a location to plonk the sever but it hit me earlier tonight that while it would be out of the way in the bedroom I'd also have to sleep with it and it would stand a good chance of keeping me up, I've decided to put it in a very large cupboard near the living room which I can route a long Ethernet cable into discretely.
Should I need to get ethernet elsewhere I'll probably go with the homeplugs.
Thanks for your advice anyway.
