I want to bring my router/model closer to the MySky box to allow connection of other web devices.

But the phone line is currently occupied by the MySky telephone jack output.

Where do I connect this Sky phone output to the modem/router to allow the newly placed router to occupy the phone line jack and connect to the web?

Simply where does the MySky phone line connect to a modem/router?

You dont need to hook up the Mysky box to the internet, i Haven't had it connected for years and if i want to book movies and such, i just use another device to do it.




Common sense is not as common as you think.


Banana?

It sounds like you may have a master splitter installed (DSL Master Filter), as by the sounds of it you do not have a filter on your MySky phone jack (a white plug in splitter looking thing).

If you don't, and your MySky is currently directly connected to your phone line, then your internet connection will be suffering. If you have a plug in filter on that jack point, you should just be able to connect your router to the DSL port on that filter.

If you do have a master splitter installed, you cannot move your router, as the jack it is currently connected to is split out from your voice jacks, and connecting your router to any other (voice) jack will have the DSL frequencies filtered out.

OK so the job is now done - successfully I think!

The supplied Telecom Filter is now going into the phone jack previously occupied by Sky.

The filter takes the Router/Modem connection directly and the other connection for the Sky decoder(supplied with its own Filter type box on-line) is also connected to the Telecom Filter. It means there are essentially TWO filter type connections on this line.

The question now is, after confirming all internet connections are working (which they are), is the Sky connection for Pay-On-Demand booking system working?

Is there a way to confirm this Pay TV circuit is live without buying something in advance simply to check the link?

Software updates come down from the Satellite. IIRC the phone only serves as upstream, satellite as downstream

Thanks for that, always wondered what that did. Not a lot in reality then.
