Line filter & phone physical setup

 

pic 2.pngYour ADSL2+ modem does not require a filter to work properly, however other telephony devices (e.g. telephone) connected to the same phone wall socket as your modem does require a filter. In this situation you need an ADSL splitter. A splitter works in a very similar way to a filter, the only difference is that it also allows unfiltered signal to go through to your modem.
