      Don't mean to be a pain but I have another question on this subject.If you don't microfilter all extensions,what will be the end result?Is speed performance etc. likely to be affected?

      I think you only need to put microfilters into the extension sockets that have a device plugged into it.

      A filter is necessary because once your line is activated with Broadband it carries 2 signals - an analogue (phone) signal and a digital (broadband) signal which are both carried at different frequencies. In order to receive both of these signals clearly you must connect all of your devices which normally plug into a phone socket into a Broadband filter. It is this feature of Broadband which allows you to use the Internet connection whilst on the phone or receiving faxes.
      If you do not connect your Broadband filters or you do not have all devices within your property connected using a Broadband filter you may face the following problems:

      * No connection possible on Broadband service: common symptoms include a flashing ADSL light on your modem and Error 680 (No dial tone) on your computer
      * Intermittent Dropping Internet connection
      * Fuzzy or bad telephone connection when the modem is plugged in
