Haven't BT now dropped the engineer install?


Indeedy they have. At the very least, BTOpenworld acknowledged that
no more Engineer assisted installations were to be provided. Other
ISPs are still quoting the service is available, but one doubts that
it really is.

'Shed'

When your exchange is enabled, contact your chosen ISP (Pipex,
Nildram, BTO - whoever). When you order, you will need to do the
installation yourself.

Installation consists of installing a modem to your PC (or a router -
depending on your requirements), then connecting this via filter to
your normal telephone socket.

All engineer installations ever consisted of really, was the supply of
a filter that replaced your existing telephone face plate. Now the
filter is a seperate "in-line" device instead.

Ummm - one thing. You don't put a filter on the ADSL modem - you filter
everything else. In many cases it will go into a splitter which has a
filter for the phone line, but i've seen a few cases where people are trying
to filter the wrong thing and nothing working.

If the modem has one of the funny shaped sockets, he may well need to use
the filter at the point at which the modem connects...

Thats the splitter - the ADSL side of the splitter is unfiltered though, its
just a passthrough. With those splitters its obvious what goes where, but
some people see all this talk about filters, buy a single line filter, and
then try to filter the ADSL too.

Doh ! I really must proof read what I wrote.

Of course you are right - the filter is required for the *other*
telephony devices in the house, *not* the ADSL modem/router itself.

Sorry,
