Broadband filters

I know this is an old chestnut and I have looked through the archives and diagram links, but would still like advice on my set up- which is:

BT line in socket.
From here runs a single line with a 3 way adaptor at the end.
The 3 outputs from here are:
1. To phone next to it.
2. To lounge where it splits into 2. One to phone and one to Sky.
3. To upstairs b/room where it splits into 2. One for phone in bedroom and one goes through to office where it splits into 2. One for PC and one for 3 in 1 with fax.( Fax I rarely use and could be dis-connected).
Can I not connect the filter into the single line from the BT box, put the 3 way adaptor into the filter ( if that's physically possible) and connect everything into the 3 way as now.? Plus, I assume, one filter in the bedroom for that phone, as that is the only extension with the PC on it.
My brain hurts now!
Basically how few filters can I get away with.

ie:wall socket,filter extensions or phone

stalion. Your system seems like mine, but sounds too good to be true! On the other hand I need four from fruit bat. I'll see what other replies I get before I close. Do you use the special cable ( whatever it's called) anywhere or are you all standard cables?

standard telephone cable, you may need to use more than one filter but I am useing only one

For what its worth my mony is on Fruit Bat. I've got various extensions and BT advised a similar set up. Don't worry with paracetomal try Glenmorangie

If you go to click here (it's based near where I live) you can buy the RJ11/45 each end data and telephone cable (3 metres) for £5 odd plus VAT or even better, a Lindy 10 metre version for £7.59 including VAT.

All I had to do was pay a visit but you can order on the website or by phone - the cable I bought wasn't listed on the website.

Cheapest cable of its type I've seen, yet a top quality brand.

PS got the cable B&Q years ago

main thing to remember is the filters are only to stop interference so just try a filter where you think it is needed but definately use one last thing before you plug in to the wall socket
