      Micro Filter Help

      Hi guys

      Need a bit of help with the filter setup as I am totally unfamiliar to all this. Here's the problem...

      I have one phone socket which I have plugged a micro filter into and then into that, the router and the sky box telephone line. However, now I need to add my telephone into the equation.

      So, do I split it at the socket, plug the telephone into one and the filter (set as before) into the other? Or split it at the filter? Or can you put filters into filters?

      Any suggestions are appreciated.

      Thanks

      Re: Micro Filter Help

      You would be best putting the filter in the master socket. Plug the router into the adsl side of it and then maybe get a double adapter or small extension from somewhere and plug this into the phone side of the filter. Then plug your phone and Skybox into that.

      If you have had your Skybox over a year, afaik you do not need it plugged into the line.

      Mine has not been plugged in for about 4 years or so.

      It depends on what package you have with them. E.g I have multi-room with Sky and one of the T&C's for this is to keep both boxes connected for the duration of having multi-room. I assume this is so that they know you are not giving 10 Sky to your relative up the road, or whoever.

      I am not sure if there are any other circumstances whereby you would have to keep your boxes connected to the line, but it is worth bearing in mind.
