Does anyone know if a line which has not got broadband enabled cna use the phone filters to use modem and phone line at the same time?

i doubt it because one will take precedence overr the other.

I don't think that will work. Nice if it would! ;o)

Voice and 56k modem both use the analog signal of your phone-line where ADSL [Broadband] uses the digital signal of your phone-line. j.

Thanks, for the response and the reason behind it.

The normal telephone signal is in the frequency range 300Hz to 4kHz. The adsl signal is in the range 30kHz to 1.104MHz. The function of the broadband filter is to separate these two frequence ranges. Because the dial-up modem uses signals in or near the audible range it can't be separated from the voice function by a filter.
