need some ideas for filtering dsl

currently in my house there are only two phone jacks. this is unacceptable to me. i am planning to run a cat 5 cable from the nid outside to a closet in the 2nd bedroom. there it will hook into a "telephone distribution block" and plug into a 24 port patch panel. i will have runs to all the rooms in the house and whatnot. my question is, i am looking for a way to split the dsl signal so that i have all the ports running from the phone distribution block filtered and then have one port that is not filtered for the modem.

plan 1, take the primary run and wire it into a "wall jack" and split it there, filtered side goes to distribution block, unfiltered side goes to modem.

the only thing i dont like about this idea is that it wont follow suit with everything else. i want everything to be the same so i would like to have the dsl modem plug into the 24 port patch panel. i got 24 ports, i definetely wont have 24 phones so it wont be a big deal to "waste" a port. the filter will have to be in front of the distribution block because i dont want 20 little filters hanging off the patch panel. any interesting ideas on how i can do this?

One solution is to install a DSL splitter. This will give you one line for the DSL modem and another to feed the telephone voice line as you propose. An example of the device and a description of how it is wired and operates can be found here: http://www.homephonewiring.com/dsl.html

Hope this helps.

if i bought a nid splitter that was designed to be an outdoor wall mounted one, i could in theory just run some cat5 to the room and then split it there instead of splitting it on the outside. i would rather do it that way. the outside has cable and all kinds of wires that i am eliminating and i dont want to add another box for telco stuff if i dont have to. besides, i have a two post rack that i need to fill up. ;-)

sure just run to the room then filter the phone side ,run unfiltered to you modem .

you can use the filters provided with your dsl service no advantage in buying a outdoor on if you plan to mount in indoors

Let us know what you end up doing. Right now, I have DSL with the filters hanging at each device and I hate that setup. I like the idea of the NID filter on the inside, I hadn't thought about doing that until I seeing you post. That would work for me, since my voice lines are tied together, and I have a single home run from the block to my DSL modem.

Thanks for the idea.

Talk to your service provider. Sometimes, a radio filter on your phone line can help. When I first got DSL, they ended up climbing the pole to fix something up there that had gone bad over the years.
