    Sorry to be so ignorant, but what are slave sockets?

    Extension sockets (i.e. not the Master socket).
    Time has moved on (much quicker than it used to - or so it seems at my age) and my previous advice on residential telephony has been or is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.

    It's PAC not PAC Code, it's MAC not MAC Code, it's PIN not PIN Number, it's ATM not ATM Machine, it's LCD not LCD Display, it's DVD not DVD disc... It's no one not noone, It's a lot not alot, It's got not gotten... Panini is the plural of panino - there is no S!!

    Sorry, have to ask, an extension socket?
    Would wireless not be easier?

    Wireless is more expensive :) That's not just the cost of buying the router and and cards. You could simply have a phone socket with a adsl filter built in because it'd be easier on the eye than a seperate filter and wouldn't cost the earth to run! You wouldn't need to have a router plugged in the electrical sockets all the time (costing more money ;)).

    You still need a microfilter in every phone socket you use

    You don't actually! One filter can filter all of your extension sockets.

    HTH

    The OP mentioned a slave socket though not an extension, so this wouldn't be passing through the filter plugged into the master socket.

    A slave socket is another word for an extension socket i.e. not the master socket. Here I have eight slave or extension sockets all fed from one ADSL filter.
