How should I connect cordless DECT telephone to an ADSL Microfilter?
Seems a simple question, but I cannot find a simple answer online anywhere. Our broadband occasionally drops when we make/receive phone calls.
I have microfilters on all sockets: Master Socket, which only has the broadband router plugged in; Socket 2 which only has a corded telephone plugged in, and; Socket 3 (the problematic one) which has only a DECT Cordless phone base station plugged in.
My problem is that the cable for the DECT cordless phone does not have a 'Telephone connector' with a side mounted hook, but rather has a modular connector, with a bottom mounted hook. On the Microfilter this cable will, therefore, only plug into the ADSL socket, rather than the phone socket. I don't believe that it would make sense to plug the phone into the ADSL socket, as this would presumably defeat the point of the microfilter.
Do I need an adaptor, to convert the modular connector to a telephone connector? Do I need a different microfilter? Crazy question: can I plug modular phone cable into ADSL of a microfilter, and then plug that microfilter into the 'phone' socket of a second microfilter, and plug that into the wall socket? I fear that filtering to phone, and then to ADSL, would ultimately filter out everything (i.e. not work at all?)?
Sorry if this has been answered before, but I have googled every combination of relevant words and phrases, and simply cannot find an answer!
