I have to ask - Why did BT move your router ? Did they install a new master socket at the same time ? Normally you site the router as practically close to the master socket as you can.
Is this a laptop or a desktop that you are having connection troubles with ? The reason I ask is that the change in position of the router could have adversely affected the signal path to its wifi adapter. As an example, the back of my desktop is about three inches away from an external wall which is why I use a dongle stuck to the top front corner of it, our router being almost in the exact centre of our house. If I used a built in card, with the aerials coming out from the back panel the signal would have to find its way through or round a steel cabinet. It would be worth your while checking this possibility.
Any chance you could ask BT to put it back where it was, or do-it-yourself ?
And I am moiving this topic to the Networking section where it belongs.
