      Creating a filtered an unfiltered extension on same line

      Hello,

      I have managed to create an ADSL extension and telephone extension at home but now it is time to do the mother-in laws.

      So this is what I am thinking, tell me if it works:

      Put an ADSL Nation filtered face plate on
      Run one cat 5e cable from this but use the wires in the cat 5e cable to take a filtered and unfiltered line to an extension socket
      Fit an extension socket that will have a phone and ADSL face plate (All in one) that will have no filters in it as the phone will be filtered at main socket.

      will this work or will i get interference as the filtered and unfiltered are running down the same cable, all beit in separate wires?

      Also anyone know where to get cheap cat5e? I reckon I will need quite a bit of it. Still to measure it though!


      thanks

      Yes that will work, the isolation between the pairs will be fine. Don't forget to run a ring line as you will have no filter at the other end and your phone may not ring without it.
      Suggested pairs.

      DSL= Green pair.

      Voice (filtered) = Blue pair.

      Ring line = Orange with white rings.

      If you are pushed for cost, then 3 pair CW1308 would work just as well and is a bit smaller.

      Thanks Brian any idea where I can get this equipment at a decent price.

      Clarity seem to do the extension box I need but it is 6.
      ADSL main filter is always a little expensive so I know I have to pay for that, after all it does all the work.
      And cat5e? Any ideas where it is at a good price?

      Don't know where to suggest, trouble with trying to get cable at a low price is that you may have to buy a large amount. Bite the bullet and try Maplin.

      I think you are over complicating things, all you need do is run one unfiltered pair to the extension and fit a filtered extension faceplate.

      ADSL Nation - XTF-68/85 - Pre-filtered Telephone Socket
