    Hi, ive had this problem for a while now and I really havent thought of it.

    Ok, so the title says it all but i do have a single ADSL in line splitter/filter connected to the 1 phone in the house. Ive read similar forums and they say do that.
    Im a bit of a n00b when it comes to internet so stick with me.:D

    Thanks

    There isn't anything special about ADSL2 as far as frequencies goes, a standard DSL filter will do the trick. You need to have filters on ALL of the devices EXCEPT the modem. Do you have any other phone devices like an answering machine? If so, that needs a filter too.

    Just put a filter on the phone, should be all that's required.
