      Adsl filter question.

      I recently installed 2 phone line extensions to connect my sky boxes to phone the line. Now I want to move my router to near the sky box so i can get anytime plus but I don't know if I will need extra filters now and if so where I will need them. My current set up is:

      Master socket (with 3 way splitter)
      \/ \/ \/
      Filter Extension Extension
      \/ \/ \/
      Telephone Sky+HD box Multi room box
      and router

      I would appreciate any help/advice.

      Thanks.

      Re: Adsl filter question.

      You may find that your broadband suffers if you move it away from the master socket. It will suffer even more if you are using plug in extensions.

      The main thing to realise is that the router is not filtered, so the extension leading to where you want to place the router should not be filtered at the master socket end, but a filter must be plugged into the end of the extension to filter the Sky box.
      Your set up would be
      Master socket (with 3 way splitter)
      \/ \/ \/
      Filter,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Filter ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Extension
      \/,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, \/,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, \/
      Telephone,,,,,,,,,,, Sky+HD box ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Filter
      .................................................. .................Multi room box and router

      Personally I would leave the router by the Master socket and use a long ethernet cable to connect the Sky box. This way you would need one filter into the master socket and the splitter and router plugged into it. No other filters required.
