Phones and Line Filters

The “phone” port on your modem/router is a filtered port ready to plug in a standard telephone. All other telephones need to have a DSL Line Filter plugged in between the telephone and phone jack on the wall. Three DSL Filters have been included with your modem/router. The filters will prevent line noise caused by the DSL service that may be heard during a phone call. To use your DSL Filters:

  1. Plug your telephone cable in to the phone port on the DSL Filter.
  2. Now plug the DSL Filter into the phone jack on the wall.


If you experience any problems with your DSL service, here are some steps to do before contacting Support:

  1. If there is line noise while talking on the phone, make sure that all phones have a DSL Filter between them and the wall.
  2. Power cycle everything. DSL Modem, any switch or router you have installed, and your computer. This will give everything a chance to reset and establish a new connection.
  3. Isolate a single computer directly connected to the DSL Modem. This will keep the connection as simple as possible and eliminate other equipment issues.

If you continue to have a problem, contact Support via phone or the contact form.
