      Help with cabling / filtering

      I am just about to upgrade to a SKY HD box, so now have to connect 1 phone, 2 sky boxes and the router to one phone socket.

      Any ideas how i connect all this, while filtering correctly ?

      Any help would be appreciated.

      Plug a filter into the master socket, buy one of these and plug the boxes and phone into the phone side of the filter and the router into the RJ11 socket.

      The Sky filters are not very high quality so you may need to buy a good quality filter to prevent interference. One of these - Excelsus Z-350UK-Premium Quality ADSL Filter or a filtered faceplate shown on the same page would be suitable
