Alarm system and dsl
So I have a problem. Just got DSL in this house.
I put a filter on the telephone, and I checked the signals to the DSL modem, they are all in the verygood-excellent range according to the dslreports chart.
In game my pings are very low and consistent until like every 30 seconds 999 ping and then it drops. I have only tested this with my alarm system on so far.
Now, I just got ADT installed here(installed before DSL) and it's just the small control box and it just goes into the wall. I don't see where I could put like a rj31x filter like I did in my other house.
Are new ADT alarm systems like filtered or something? I don't see how I could put one, as there is no central station like this, just the hand dialer box.

Typically they mount a small box in the closet areas and run a phone wire to it, that usually is locked so you have to have a whole house filter done in the NID. Some alarms are using cellular now so its best to contact ADT support to verify.

I see a wire going to the wall, but it might just be power, I will verify later. How could I have a whole filter on the house? How would my dsl work then... :?
If it's cellular then I am not sure what would be causing the lag.

You should know if its cellular. ADT charges extra for that. Look at the documentation that came with it and it should say.

Sounds to me you need a homerun ran directly to the modem with an outside splitter installed. I wouldn't trust the dsl filters they install inside the control panel. They dont work worth a dime many times.
