Hi,

Not so. You can use ADSL over an extension cable if you so desire. Naturally you must take a common sense approach to filtering and get your wiring right but it's not a problem.

Just remember that you need to filter all phones unless they have already been filtered. This will vary with everyone's choice of extension setup / layout which is why I mention the whole common sense approach.

Regards, Torsten.

Do bear in mind that there are limits to the amount of cable that can be used (usually specified to be 30metres). This is down to signal degradation. Different modems have different sensitivities so will handle this differently but you're best not to have it borderline anyway so I would stick to a 25m limit. Seem fair?
