      Am I double filtering?

      Well, I have something similar to this;

      Clarity - UK ADSL BT Linebox Adaptor Faceplate

      On my master socket in my house - it looks just like the one in the picture. However, what I didn't know, is that you don't need to put filters on all the other phone sockets if you have one of these thingies.

      Inevitably, yes, I have put them there. :P Since there is some effort involved unplugging them again, I thought I'd best ask first. Should I remove the extra filters? Both also have Sky boxes plugged into them, if that makes a difference.

      I'm just wondering if doing this could see any improvement in my speed or anything.

      Provided your router is plugged into the unfiltered outlet on the filter then that's fine. There's no harm in you having a filtered faceplate plus all your phones/digiboxes also having microfilters.

      hehe thanks

      I might get around to removing them one day then, but no urgency
