Good afternoon,

A quick question I am hoping...

When I had mt ADT alarm installed nearly 2-years ago the contractor offered to install the splitter at the same time..... He has done what I consider an odd wiring job...

My 2 questions:

Does any one have an actual diagram of how to wire a Splitter?? (The one that Telecom charges $150 + to install).

The contractor put a dual BT outlet in my office, one for voice and one for Telecom Broadband, my phone works in both outlets and broadband only works in one, Is that normal for voice??

Thanks in advance..

Brad Wright.

Yep that sounds right.

The broadband outlet has the normal unfiltered "phone line" on it so broadband or a phone will work.  Of cause if you want to use both at the same time then you will need an ADSL filter for the phone.
The voice outlet has the filtered side of the splitter so no broadband signal getting to it.

As CyBro says a correctly wired system will allow the phone to work on the DSL socket or the modem to work their, only phone will work on anyother socket.

As for a wiring diagram, in simple words, the inbound line is split to the filter and to the ADSL socket, the output of the filter will go to the alarm, the return from the alarm goes to all house phone sockets which will no longer support ADSL. This assumes the alarm has been wired to be able to sieze the line. If the alarm is just across the line and not able to sieze it, then it appears just as any post filter phone device.
