You can connect your ADSL equipment (such as a modem/router) via a double socket microfilter to any telephone socket on a line enabled for BT Broadband. You must then connect your ADSL modem/router to your computer. The connecting line cords provided with the BT Broadband modem/router are 3 metres long. Connecting cords provided with modems/routers purchased from other suppliers may vary in length.

 

It is highly recommended, where possible, to attach your broadband modem/router to the master phone socket (otherwise known as the drop point, where the phone line enters the premises). DSL Synchronisation can only be guaranteed up to the drop point. It is the customer's responsibility to maintain any cabling beyond the main socket.
