      Scan.co.uk: ZyXel Excelsus Z-Blocker, Micro Filter/Splitter Kit for ADSL2/2+ DSL Modems/Routers Dual Socket BT - Z-200UK

      not sure how it compares to the filterd faceplates but it looks quite smart and tidy

      Hi what you need is a pre-filtered faceplate so you do not need to use filters. So the ADSL and Phone are separate. There is a the moment XTE-2005 Master Faceplate and NTE-2005 Master Faceplate. Link to NTE-2005 ADSL Nation LTD.

      Don't even think about that, they are inferior to the 'soap on a rope' type, even the Sky ones. If you want a good plug in filter get one of these-
      XF-1e - Professional Microfilter - adslnation.com

      A filtered faceplate is the best solution, but remember you have to plug the router into it, your extensions will be dead as far as ADSL is concerned.
