      Wiring to non NTE5 master

      Ok this is my scenario:

      I have an old style BT master socket (non NTE 5) in my house. Plugged into this is my Sky+ box and main telephone via a doubler.

      I have now installed an extension socket in one of the bedrooms to serve my broadband modem and an additional telephone (it has an ADSL faceplate with built-in filter so that I can connect the two). As I cannot wire the extension directly to the master socket, it has to be plugged in the front using a standard BT plug.

      The problem is that I am trying to plug alot of devices into the front of one master socket! The sky+ box and main telephone need to be filtered so I have them plugged into the master via the doubler with a filter attached to the doubler. However I also need to plug in my extension lead but this can't be filtered else the broadband modem won't connect! How do I have everything plugged in at once?!

      Master socket >>>>> Socket doubler>>>modem extension.
      -------------------------------------v
