Where to connect ADSL modem

  Baz48 12:32 26 Jul 06

Does a broadband modem have to be connected to the main BT socket or will an extension socket be OK?

Usually an extension socket will be okay. But you still need to put filters on every other socket that is being used by a phone, fax, skybox, etc.

You could use a proper ADSL data cable - about £7.50 for a 10m length - which can be taken direct from the Master Socket (via a splitter) to your modem.

Alternatively, you could buy a filtered face place to fit on your NTE5 box or standard phone socket and use the data cable without a splitter.

Thanks for the replies.

This question is not for myself but for two friends who are about to get broadband.

On the subject of filters, I have had broadband for about three years with no filters on my two telephone extensions and the skybox and have had no problems with noise or crosstalk etc. Obviously the need for filters is not universal.
