Micro Filter/s but am I choosing the right one ?

been told that I should try micro filters on my phone sockets as when on AOL BB the phone rings then crashes/freezzes machine.

So, with AOL BB, on a BT line, so if anyone know's which type of Micro Filter should I buy (if there is more than one type.

The ones I am thinking of buying are called "ADSL" microfilters.

There apparently to be plugged inbetween the pnone socket on wall to the phone cords of each phone.

ADSL is just the more advance term for Broadband so you can just get them simply enough.

that/r u saying that the ADSL filters are ok and I can use them please ?

Yes. ADSL & BB are the same thing so you can use them. Microfilters are made just for them anyways.

click here click here click here I do not have bb yet but many people are using the cheap one OK, all phone sockets should have a micro filter installed - they are to cut down the noise for voice calls.

Remember that microfilters as used in BB connections are fitted on the phone side of the connection and not, as many people thing on the BB side. This means that ALL phones and extension phones/FAX machines and everything else on that line must have a microfilter in the line.

You can use the ADSL connection without a microfilter but you can't then use a phone as well.

Blue~Storm, didn't AOL send you free filters with your BB kit? Call them, you should get them for free -- one is needed for each phone/fax/sky phone socket.
