    Hi folks,

    This is possibly a stupid question, so please be gentle...

    I'm about to get BT broadband in and was wondering if this is possible:-

    Since my PC and XBox are in a room with no phone socket, can I use a regular phone extension lead (about 20 metres) directly from a phone socket into the room with the PC and XBox, attach a microfilter to that and then hook up a modem/router to the microfiter and hook up the PC and XBox to that? :zonked:

    I was going to go wireless but for everything it would probably cost around £200 or so, doing it the above way would cut this cost at least in half... I just don't know if it can be done :blush:

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Regards,
    Iain.

    Hi, Iain

    I do just what you describe with a 10 metre extension cable from the telephone point, works fine with my bt broadband.

    this is basically just what is done when adding new phone points..... it should work a charm as sheks says.
