The Red one is for using with the BT modem (particularly for real fibre)

maxie, I'm usually quite savvy with computers, being playing & building them since windows 95, have always been with BT, and must admit have been impressed with their broadband ( one mile away from exchange), but never had a modem so to speak.
Years ago I had the blue rubber thing (dolphin like) then Hub 1, 2, 3 & 5, so the Wlan on rear of hub is to be used with separate modem!, why would anyone want that when the Dsl goes to it's own socket. Dsl socket is I believe rj45 cable & Wlan is cat 5e, so from my wall socket should I have rj45 and the other end have Cat5e to plug into my Wlan socket for a better speed, your thoughts most appreciated.

I totally agree with you Peter ... I can not see any reason why it would or even should be used ... I doubt very much that changing your setup would improve your speed ...

Must admit seems a wee bit quicker today. Which speed test do you use?, some them seem to vary quite a bit.
