ADSL phone filters query.

Just put new ones on but nit sure if old ones are stuffed, can they be checked, seems a shame to chuck out anything usefull.

Well if they work then they're not stuffed

would you pay to 'check' a $10 item ?

Why buy new ones if your old ones still worked?If they didnt work, then obviously they are stuffed.

If they worked, they aren't stuffed.If they were making the lines noisy and the new ones aren't, then just bin 'em.

well sometimes when ya internet connexion aint that great u do try some new ideas , router flickers sometimes so try new filters ok, hard to notice any difference, could be a number if things but by putting new filters on its one idea tried ok hence the idea to check if they are actually stuffed , that was all but the question still aint been answered, can they be checked?

router flickers...........

test the actual line connection by running that router at a friends place or a friends router at your place

I have a question for you guys relating to this in my place I have 3 jackpoints for the phone the phone works on all 3 but it doesnt matter what I do my internet will only work from one of them any ideas?

Apparently you already have a 'splitter' installed, and you won't need to use filters on the two plugs where the ADSL modem doesn't work.

Wrong. Some cheapie filters will 'work', however will significantly reduce the throughput.
