Connecting Filters


Connecting a Central or Splitter Filter

This filter is used when you need to plug a telephone and the modem in the same telephone wall socket.

There are three ports on the central filter as follows:

Line - This port connects to your telephone wall socket. 

ADSL - This port connects to the modem's Grey port labeled ADSL. 

Phone - This port connects to a telephone or other types of telephony devices (for example a fax machine).


From the diagram below you can see the splitter (micro) filter acts as a double adapter and filter.



This filter is used on all telephones, fax lines, etc.

An inline filter is placed between the telephony device and the telephone wall socket and should never be installed on the ADSL modem's phone cable/connection.
