DSL ANNOYANCES

USING A SPLITTER

The Annoyance:

My home alarm started behaving strangely after I had DSL installed. Is there a way to fix this?

The Fix:

Simply put, DSL is broadband Internet access that runs over your existing telephone line. DSL service can coexist on your telephone line because it uses a different range of frequencies than conventional phone and fax equipment. However, other telco devices in your home can sometimes affect (and be affected by) the DSL service. To eliminate the interference, install a filter at each telephone jack in your home. Inexpensive filters prevent most telephones, fax machines, and other gadgets from interfering with your data service. You can buy inexpensive DSL filters from any computer store, including CompUSA, Staples, or OfficeMax.
