This cable is suitable for connecting a Dial-up Modem to a BT phone socket or most Standard Phones (with RJ11 connection) to a BT phone socket.

Ok understand thanks again.

You can however connect the RJ11/BT directly to the phone socket (without the filter) which is handy for extensions where no phone is likely to be used. I used to have this set up.

You can't connect it through the phone side of the filter as the ADSL signal doesn't need to be filtered and therefore it wouldn't work.

Just to make clear as jackoms above post says its not for a modem/router for broadband,iuse the master socket for my connection at present with a RJ11 to RJ11 cable and filter,i do not use a phone on this socket,on a other forum i read a post which said a microfilter should not be used on the master socket just for the modem/router as it can slow down the adsl single coming into the house,but i should have a filter on all sockets with a phone.

If you connect the router to the master socket but no phone is used at that socket then you can use the RJ11/BT cable as I explained as there is no need for a filter at this socket.

As you say you just need to filter any extensions you have.

I wouldn't think using the filter even though not required would have much effect on your signal though as you are connecting through the ADSL side of the filter which is the unfiltered side...if you get what I mean! :)
