Broadband wiring question.

  Europa 21:34 30 May 2006

I do intend to get broadband in the near future.
I have a Netgear DG834. One filter splitter is provided with it. One side is to connect the ADSL lead, but I have 2 phones and the dial up modem to be connected to the phone line.
Can I plug a parallel three way adaptor in the filter splitter to connect the 2 phones and the dial up modem to the phone line? (a bit like what I've got now).
Thank you.

europa, yes you can do that. As long as there is a filter between any phone or modem they will be fine. You prob wont need the modem lead once you are on broadband?

Yes, I have a DG384 and router is in the splitter adsl skt and I have 2 phones and a 'wireless' DECT phone system connected to the other 'phone' skt of the splitter.
Have a look at click here I tried it the disconnection of the ringer wire and so far it works for me BUT dont do it until you are running the phones via the splitter which has the necessary capacitor to allow the phones to ring

butter fingers, I will need a backup system in case there is a problem with my broadband connection, yes it can happened, so the dialup modem will allow me to connect with a pay as you go number if that happened.

The link shown with terryf refers to incorrect starr wireing, asume yous is correct unless you know otherwise.
