      Decent Microfilters

      I'm thinking of changing my microfilters, can someone recommend a good type/make? I'm not sure if I really want to spend nearly 8 for the Adslnation XF1Es though and a filtered faceplate is out of the question due to the location of the master socket.

      I did get some BT MF50s a while ago off a well known auction site but I think they maybe dodgy.

      Re: Decent Microfilters

      Why is a filtered faceplate out of the question? Do not all extensions wire back to the master socket?

      Premium Quality ADSL Filter (BT Plug to BT Socket/RJ11)

      These have proved to be a good reliable filter.

      Re: Decent Microfilters

      The position of the master socket makes it awkward to have the router connected to it, ie, it's located in a corner of the room behind a door and the other side of a set of french doors with no nearby mains sockets, not to mention I've got wooden floors so no hiding cables under carpets etc.

      I'm lucky in that I get as good as a connection via the extensions than I do connected via the master, or even the test socket for that matter.

      Re: Decent Microfilters

      So why does that mean a faceplate is out of the question? Fit a faceplate to your master(is it an NTE5?) pre filter extensions for phones(so no plug in filters) and unfiltered extension to where router is. Do all extensions wire back to the master? Or are they daisy chained together?

      Re: Decent Microfilters

      The two extensions wire back to the master. I'll still need a microfilter for the unfiltered extension would I not?

      Re: Decent Microfilters

      You can either use a micro filter for the ADSL extension or an RJ11 socket if it is for ADSl ONLY. The alternative is to fit one of these :-

      BT Socket, Master, ADSL Filtered With RJ45/RJ11

      Do you need a phone where the router extension is?

      Re: Decent Microfilters

      Thanks I might just go with the single microfilter option then. I've got one of your XTE-2005 faceplates which I'll stick on the master. BTW for the unfiltered extension which way round does the 2 and 5 connections fit to A and B?
