My System Specs


I just use one filter to cover the whole house. The phone wire comes into the basement and is split. One leg goes to the DSL modem and the other to a splitter and then to the breakout box that feeds all the phones in the house. I was a little worried that it might burn out but no problems after years of use. (Though, we rarely use more than one extension.) You might have to get a little more creative if you want the modem somewhere else.

These things are just very simple notch filters with two wires in and two out. If you are handy with a soldering iron take one apart and hard wire it in.
