Like many people, my broadband uses my landline connection via an ADSL filter - recently my internet connect has been dropping out quite frequently - specifically when the phone is being used.
Currently I have a 5m phone extension cable from the BT master socket + ADSL filter + 2m phone/ADSL cables. No other extension phone sockets exist.
Q1) The 5m extension isn't in good condition so will get replaced but what with?
Q2) There's a big price difference between cheap and expensive ADSL filters - does that indicate a difference in quality?
Q3) Should I fit the ADSL filter into the BT master socket and run two seperate cables to the equipment, or is that pointless as the master socket still has 3 miles of shared cable to the exchange?
Q4) Are shielded phone and ADSL cables useful and/or available?
Thanks for your patience with all these questions, I'm a real numpty on this.
