    Hi guys,

    Long time reader, first time poster!

    I have a BT Voyager 2110 router connected to phone line in my living room, it works like a charm. All of our phone line points have DSL filters attached and everything works fine. However, I have tried moving the router to a more central point in my home (what I believe to be the main phone line in the kitchen) and the wireless just will not work!!! I just cannot understand it! Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

    You do realize that you must install filters on everything BUT the DSL modem connection, right?

    Some companies supply a special "filter" that has two ports, one for the DSL modem, one for the standard phone, which allows you to share the jack. If you're plugging ONLY the modem into the phone jack, there should be NO filter involved with the connection.
