Well, *one* way of doing this would be to replace the splitter with a microfilter and then plug the splitter into the "POTS" side of the microfilter. From the splitter one side would go to the phone, the other to the satellite box (ie both these end up feeding into the POTS side of the microfilter). Then you would need a long lead going from the ADSL side of the microfilter, past your satellite box, and all the way to the ADSL modem on your desk.

*Another* way would be to plug a microfilter into the phone branch of the splitter and then to plug the phone into the POTS side of this splitter. Your extension lead would stay in the other side of the splitter, but at the end of it, you'd plug in another microfilter. The satellite box would feed into the POTS side of this, and the ADSL modem would go into the ADSL side.

The choice is yours - you either have a single microfilter, but an extra run of cable, or two microfilters, and no additional cable run.

By the way, the ADSL side of a microfilter is usually an RJ-11 socket, not a BT phone socket, so you need cable with an appropriate plug.
