My Grandparents just got wireless 4G broadband with Spark. I've hooked up the new 4G router and plugged one phone into it, but my Grandparents have phones scattered all over the house that they want working. Is it possible to get them working too?

BT to RJ11 cord plugged between a phone jack and the ata port on the back of the router, be careful to first check if the incoming line has voltage on it (tone) if so simply snip the incoming pair from the street.

I'll give that a go over the weekend. I wouldn't even have a clue where to find the incoming line though, might have to give spark a call.

Do I need to remove those filters that are plugged into each jackpoint?

Probably cheaper to get a multi handset dect phone rather than pay a sparky to come out. I have read of people getting a set out of spark when moving to the wireless home phone.

I did this for a friend recently. Just had to work out which was the incoming pair and *snip*. Plug ata into jackpoint.

Yes. Get rid of filters now, nothing to filter any more.

Look for a small white box outside your house. That's the ETP where the incoming line connects to the house.
