I have a BB connection and use a phone line extension to my computer then the filter then the data cable, could someone tell me if that is ok i have not had any probs yet. My mate tells me i should only use a data cable i think he is a bit cheesed of because he just paid £1.99 a meter of data cable (5m) and my extension was only £2.99

is perfectly OK. The broadband service will work very well on a phone extension that has a microfilter fitted.

FE why is it that when we can use normal tools for a job i.e phone extension cable do isp sell data cables at ext prices? do they think we are mugs or a bit thick. ThanK you anyway i think ill tell my mate i will take the chance and let him down easy.
