How Many Wires Does DSL Require?

I'm going to be signing up for DSL service in the near future and am wondering if I need to hook up additional lines inside my home. Right now I only use 2 of the 4 wires in a standard phone wire.

Your DSL signal will come to the NID over two wires in the telephone line and thence to the dsl "modem" where your ethernet cable would connect. Your telephone voice and dsl will run over the same line. Usually, one employs a filter at the telephone to filter out the noise of the dsl signal. The signal is used unfiltered at the "modem".

Hope this helps.
