Setting up a new broadband network

  xania 16:28 04 May 2004

I'm planning on setting up a new wired BB network for the 2 PC's in my house. I currently have 2 telephone lines, both used to connect one PC to a dial-up line. My plan is to connect to one line using a modem/router, but the question is which line. One line has a booster and up to 12 phone points - so I would need 13 microfilters, but the other line has just 2 phones plus a printer / scanner / fax machine. The problem: I have heard that BB + microfilters don't work where there's a fax machine on the same line. Can anyone confirm this and is there any way around it? And finally, if I went wireless, would this make any difference?

Many thanks

your best option is to set it up on the line with only 2 phones attached to it as far as i know a fax should not make any differents to BB i have tested a pc with a dial up model with my BB Modem/Router still running and that worked fine
