I’ve got the $39.95/month Citytel DSL service. I’ve got the modem plugged into the phone terminal nearest my computer. I recently acquired another phone, so I thought I’d use the RJ11 splitter that came with it and have it nearer the computer than my other phone. However, when I plug the modem and the phone in together via the splitter, neither work. Phone is noisy w/ no dial tone, modem isn’t linked up.
Is there some sort of noise issue here? Do these devices need to be separated? I remember reading something about DSL noise filters and stuff, would something like that help me here?
