Hi I am going on broadband on wednesday and after reading the recent thread on surge protectors made me wonder how I am going to connect modem to my surge protector. It has a phone socket but it's fot the normal BT phone socket.
Is there any way around this or have I missed something really obvious!
No, you have not missed anything obvious, just that you will need to buy a surge protector with RJ11 inputs/outputs. B&Q are selling 8 way protectors with RJ11, BT and Coax (TV) sockets for £30.00 or so. you may need to buy additional leads though.
Smiffy99, Must admit, your is the best option and the one I took as well. The fewer connections the better, and using adaptors tends to interfere with connections at times, also trying to fit 2 adaptors into a standard Power socket with the phone sockets is a tight fit. j.
