    You must be talking about ADSL then.
    You need a filter for each point to which you have a phone connected. Unused sockets (nothing plugged in) do not require one. I should have said "voiceband appliance" rather than phone in that FAXES & POTS modems (including the 1 in the dreaded $ky digibox) also need filters.
    Chris Muriel (1 ADSL line shared with phone, 1 separate ISDN line, 1 separate fax line,all BT + 1 NTL domestic phone line , cable STB & domestic cable broadband - wires everywhere).

    Thanks Chris
    Further to the above (I hope this makes it more clear???) the outside line goes to a box from it, wired inside the box lead goes to a other room but on the box socket I have a single to a duel plug that that supplies the Sky box and a phone.
    The lead that goes to the other room is to a box from that is a plug a phone is plugged in and a lead goes to my computer room. I only use the computer in this room no phone is required.
