      Microfilter question??

      My wall socket has 4 RJ11 connections so my router is connected directly to the wall with no microfilter.

      In another room the phone is connected via a RJ11 to BT socket adaptor again with no microfilter.

      Will this impact on my broadband speeds??

      Re: Microfilter question??

      Why aren't you using filters?

      Does the BT master socket have a filter faceplate? If so then that might be OK if the other sockets are wired appropriately to the function you're using them for. But I wouldn't bet on it.

      The rule is that every telephony device (phone, fax, digibox etc) must sit behind a filter. The router must not be filtered. The ADSL socket on a filtered faceplate or on a plug in filter is just a straight pass through so that the router isn't filtered.

      If your set up is ordinary master socket feeding two extensions, one RJ11 and one multi RJ11 then that's bad. Placing a plug in filter on each telephony device will help but as the router doesn't have its own unfiltered connection to the master, it will probably still get interference from the extension wiring.

      Closed in favour of this thread.

      Please don't start more than one thread on the same subject. It just means that members waste their time answering something which has already been covered elsewhere
