Broadband please!

  realist 18:45 15 Apr 2006

Having decided I can no longer put up with the hell that is AOL dial-up version 9.0, I have signed up for the hell that is AOL broadband version 9.0

Advice requested please on installing filters:

I have:

(a)the BT master socket in one room into which is plugged:

(b)the standard SKY adapter/socket doubler into which is plugged:

(c)the pc's extension line's socket doubler into which is plugged:

(d)the phone line.

....the pc's extension line ends in an adjoining room with a wall socket(e)into which modem is plugged.

So do I have to put a filter at each of points (a),(b),(c),(d), and the pc's wall socket (e)?

Thanks in advance.....and ,as ever, please excuse ignorance!

filter goes straight into wall socket all others piggy back after that pc plugs into adsl side of filter.

Put the filter in to split phone and modem. No more than one filter. Suggest (c).

so just one filter (in BT master socket) then, I guess, and I won't need a filter in pc modem wall socket in the other room...cheers johnnyrocker!

I'm on Aol Silver. When the line comes into the house to a socket, I've got a doubler, into which, is a filter, from which the base of my home phone is connected. The lead from the doubler goes approx 8 metres upstairs to another socket I put in, to which I have another filter, the modem connects to this through a surge protector. Glad to say no problems.
The instructions will tell you to put a filter wherever anything is connected to a line.

SB23 is your extension a regular phone ext lead or a dsl cable?

Pursuant to this post and advice received, I asked BT to install a pre-filtered master socket.....they don't seem to know what they are. Anyone actually had BT in to do one of these?

You could use an ADSL-NTEFACE faceplace splitter on the BT Master Socket. See:
