      newbie question

      Following really helpful advice on this forum, I am getting excellent results by plugging my router straight into th engineer test socket.

      Probably daft question but - is it possible to connect my phone extensions somehow whilst router attached in this manner. I am getting some domestic grief with the current arrangement !

      Thanks

      You can, just plug the faceplate into the phone side of the filter.

      Re: newbie question

      Buy and fit a filtered faceplate. As a temporary measure plug the faceplate into the filter as suggested, but you may have to plug another filter into the first one to get it on. Make sure your router stays plugged into the first filter.
