cyril7: Signet make a pair of ears that carry a 1U patch panel, you may need to drill some holes in the rear of the box to mount it. It ends up that the patch panel sits at an angle, this is fine the patch leads will fit in fine with that arrangement.
Cool, will see if I can get those from Corys. Thanks for that.
The filter linked above is the one you want, there is only one, and thats its. Mastertrade, Coreys, Russels etc have them, you dont need an account with any of them but they will charge full price over the counter (around $70) trade is around $45-50.
Ahhh didnt realise they were all the same. So the Acquire one looks a good deal :) Plus our local Corys charges and Arm and a Leg for all things.
There is no real such thing as a splitter, there is simply a filter that all pots devices must connect via, the ADSL modem connects directly to the inbound line. When you get a splitter with a BT phone outlet and RJ11 modem outlet, the BT is via the filter, the RJ11 is infact just the input line.
I recommend that you mount a BT 2Wire socket in the Signet box, the inbound line wires to that, also wire to that the filter, and the output of filter wires to the phone distribution panel or alternatevly directly to 2or3 spare jacks on the patch panel and forget the phone distribution panel.
Hmmm I'll try and deicpher what you have said and see how I go. Do you have a photo for a non expert like me :)
