Plug the microfilters into your broadband-enabled telephone socket. Microfilters stop any interference from other telephone equipment affecting your broadband service. For more information read our Guide To Fitting Microfilters. Important: Take care extra when plugging your microfilters in. Microfilters plugged into the wrong places are a common cause of broadband faults. Your broadband hardware should always be plugged into a microfilter. If you have any equipment attached to extension sockets on the same line, they should also be plugged into a microfilter.
Connect your microfilter to your broadband enabled telephone line. You should also connect a microfilter to any extension on this line that is in use. This includes extensions used with fax machines, alarms or satellite equipment.
Connect the power supply to your router and plug the power supply into an available power socket.
