Just moved into a new houseto find a double phone-socket box on the wall. I've been told by a few that due to the socket being a double socket that the filter may not work when settng up broadband. Dont want ochange the double socket box for a single unless essential as it going to leave a hole in the wall. Is a double socket likely to cause problems in set up or have I been told a load of cobblers?
Assuming it's not already a filtered phone/adsl socket (as suggested by anniesboy above), then provided you fit a microfilter to one of the sockets, then plug your phone and your internet connection into the appropriate sockets on the filter, I can't see that you'll have any problems.
You should not, of course, plug an unfiltered device into the second socket.
Now confirmed by previous owner that it is a double phone socket. Double socket used so one socket used for phone and the other socket had computer plugged into for dialup connection. Thereby phone and computer leads didn't need to be plugged in and pulled out depending which was in use
