Would anyone be able to confirm if I can just get a longer DSL lead so that the hub/router can sit next to a power socket, with the long DSL lead running to the phone master socket? Will this cause any issues, and should TalkTalk supply a longer lead, or should I buy one separately?

Thanks @martswain. I only have a master point with one slot, which the filter box is plugged into.
Could I replace the DSL line that runs from the hub/router into the filter box with a longer DSL wire?
That way the filter box would stay at the master point, but the hub/router could be sat nearer a power socket.

By keeping the filter at the master point, you mean the box that the DSL line runs into, which also has a slot for a phone set to connect to? Could I put a 15m DSL cable into this filter box, so the filter stays at the master point, but the cable can then run up to the hub/router?

I am running a 15 m DSL extension with no loss of speed.
If you have a Master Socket with only one slot and a dangly microfilter, do not use a normal phone extension, keep the filter at the Master Socket.
TT do not supply cables, you'll need to buy one.
