      Where to plug in the router?

      Looking to obtain Sky Broadband, but I'm wondering how to connect it to the phone socket.

      At present I have socket > filter > {Sky box 1} {splitter{phone}{Sky box 2}}

      How would I introduce the router into this configuration?

      Another annoyance is that my power sockets are nowhere near the phone sockets, so is it possible to daisy-chain a Sky box and the router, like this...

      Socket > filter > {router > Sky box 1} {splitter{phone}{Sky box 2}}

      No reason why you shouldn't, just make sure the filter is the first thing plugged into the phone socket and use filters on any other sockets you use.
