Broadband how many filters do i need

  Tick Tock 19:42 03 Oct 2005

I have 2 phone points in the living room 1 for
the phone and 1 for sky tv,one in the bedroom
and one at the top of the stairs with an
extension lead to another bedroom where
the computer is,so 4 points in all does that
mean 4 filters are needed.

You need a filter on each outlet, Tick Tock, 4 in your case.

Also with a old pc the minimum spec for broadband
is a 4X cd-rom drive,is this spec ok 24 x read
and 2 x write.

System has win98SE onboard sound and spare usb port
but dont understand full 500mA.

If you use a direct USB port or a powered USB hub you will/should get the full 500mA power supply per port to provide the modem's power requirements.

Ok thanks,
Thinking of tiscali broadband do you know how
many free filters they supply if any as i need 4.

Tiscali provided me with 2 filters , I am not 100% sure but additional filters I think you can buy for between £5 and £10.
