Hi All,

Sorry for such a repetitive question (well I think anyway)..

I have just moved into a new townhouse and had my broadband relocated.   I previously had a ADSL Splitter installed in the Demarc.

Unfortunately that is not going to be an option here so I now need to buy some line filter.. Can anyone please recommend a brand I should be buying? Or are they all the same?

Thank you,

Brad Wright.

How many filters will you require, if its more than 3 I recommend you still get a central filter installed, if thought out this can be installed at the first phone jack, only installing a central splitter will you remove all mid span stubs.

Why can you not locate the demarc, if its in a basement comms cupboard you can still have it installed there.

+1 on central splitter if you can afford it.

If your wiring is old or long, or a sky tech cut corners or something when wiring in a new jackpoint or something, it will help. Our max speed doubled from 2mbit to 4mbit by using a splitter, thats in a 20 year old house.

I concur with the others, but if not an option, then try Dynalink filters. Don't use Dlink filters.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Thanks everyone, the place is only 18  months old but the owners aren't too happy about me doing anything that may cause 'damage' to the property. I might try my luck with Dynalink... Any reason why D-Link are so bad?

Thanks again,

Brad.

Just get the propper installation done. Filters are the cause of most of the dropout and other issues.

I've had experience with many of these causing static on the line, or much lower DSL sync speeds. Put in Dynalink filters, and big improvement.
