What hasn't been said here is that eircom are supposed to check the line up to and including the first socket in the house
as it is their responsibility. If the linesman only checked up to where the line meets the gable from the pole then he didn't do his job.
But the filter is needed on that second phone as has been said.
As an aside, on occasion I've seen some sparks use stuff like alarm cable to put in phone wires and wired the extra sockets incorrectly even though the RECI have released a document showing how to do it (http://www.reci.ie/Portals/0/RECIDoc...minterface.pdf
). Joining up the different sockets the wrong way can cause suprising problems for DSL.
To_be_confirmed I love ya, 100% homo, unplugged all phones and restarted router, 3072Kbps
must be because of that socket in the master bedroom that doesn't have a filter, i'll attach it the minute it comes.
Also, I've done something like this before, and it went to 3072, but then went back down to about 1777 in under an hour, i'll report back.
