DSL Splitter available locally in Houston area?

I"m visiting my in laws in Lake Jackson. They have DSL at their house with truly abysmal speed.

I think the problem is that all of the house phone wiring is spliced together throughout the attic for different jacks.

Trying to find a local supplier of DSL Splitters ( preferablly exterior or NID) so I can put a home run in for the DSL modem while I'm here on christmas vacation.

Does anyone know a local seller?

I wish I could help you find one, but I have no idea where you'd buy a NID. Any reason why your in-laws won't get the phone company to install a NID?

Electronics Parts Outlet on Fondren south of Westheimer might. I would call ahead and ask. Graybar or Grainger might also.

I'd get a 66 punch down and mount it in the attic.

then run a cable (a good quality one, likely class F aka cat7 just to be overkill) from the demark to the 66 block

then run all the plugs to the 66 block

The OP is not asking where to buy a NID but instead where to buy a DSL filter which fits inside a NID such as this one.

Sorry OP, no idea on finding one in the Houston area.

You know I read and re-read his post and I still didn't understand what he was asking. Thanks for clarifying.
