Gateway Connection to phone line

I read somewhere that you should not connect a gateway to an adsl filter :? . Why not ?
Do you stil need to have your phone on a filter?

TIA

Where did you read this.

Both your router and phones should be connected via microfilters.
The only exception to this is where you have a filtered face plate on the master socket, then both can connect direct to the master socket.
Also then extensions do not require microfilters, but you can not run your router from an extension.

It all depends on whether the extension is from the filtered or unfiltered side of things-- as stated by tomdonoghue you can choose to run an unfiltered extension for dual use
