New Phone line filters and help in installing them!

Hi,

I recently renewed the phone lines within my house as they were all over the place and looking awful. This has changed the layout of the phones and where things are connecting, and I'm now getting problems with my broadband. I'm with Sky, but the problem is with the telephone and filters. Basically whenever we make or receive a call the broadband drops for a short period of time. I've had a look about on the internet and they say it a result of having duff filters, or not having them in the correct place.

If anyone knows a good place to get new filters from can they post it please?

My other quetion is where do I put the new filter? My setup is as follows:

Main line comes into the house
Splits in two

First line goes to my living room where Second line goes straight to my Sky
I have an adaptor which my phone and Router, where I currently have a filter.
Sky+ Box connect to. There is no filter
here at all.


I currently have a second filter but regardless of where I put it on the living room line I either get a really bad phone connection, no phone connection, or the problem continues.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I got my filters from Maplin and they stopped the cracking noise coming from all of my phones in the house.

I think this is the one that I bought: http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=33169

Google XTE-2005. Basically you replace the faceplate on your BT mastersocket. This has a built in filter so you do not need those awful microfilters on every other phone connection socket. When I fitted mine, my broadband speed also increased.

I got my filters from ebay, 10 for £15, but the pound shop sells them, basically you need them on every 'end of the line' connection.


Unless you get the XTE-2005

Like the idea of this but I took away the master socket as it wasn't being used the way the house had been wired up. Rep left for the good idea though!

I take it I'd need to fire a filter onto the line going into the Sky+ box as well then?
