Re: Corning POTS Splitter To ST546V6 Modem

said by morisato:

ignore the Labels Clique, Plug the DSL modem Into the Dsl Modem Jack from the Phone jack on it.

The DSL Modem jack is filtered is why it is labelled as such and the Bottom is labelled as Phone, While the top is the Raw Unfiltered Line.

Makes no sense... if the modem jack was filtred, internet wouldn't work.

Both sides work the same... Phone jack should be filtered.

Voice is filtered from the DSL jack on a POTS splitter, not the DSL signal. Likewise, the DSL signal is filtered from the phone port, but not voice. Both ports are filtered, just different ways - this is why they call it a POTS splitter. If you hook up a telephone to the DSL port it will not work for voice in any way, shape or form.

I'd love to try that one, see if a phone works in the modem jack. But this would make sense.

I did it out of curiosity when I was making some changes in the wiring closet at my store. It doesn't work. It is a splitter is the truest sense of the word.

It's not just a splitter... it's obviously a filter. Splitter don't come filtered in most case. Hence why people used them for fax and phones.

I think everyone here knows what a two-way splitter does, but we're talking about POTS splitters - they split the POTS line into separate and dedicated DSL and voice (and fax and whatever else that runs over the voice network) lines that can't be used for anything else but that.

Plain old telephone service ... it doesn't say much.

A splitter simply splits the wire in two direction... Obviously this splitter is for DSL and phone service to work without any issues.

Now that you know what a POTS splitter does and that it isn't merely the same thing as putting a microfilter between a line from the demarc and your DSL modem, why do you need to care what POTS means? Would you prefer it be called a PSTN/DSL isolator or something instead?

No I don't care... but to say it's a pure splitter would be wrong, IMO.

But thanks for letting me know both are filtered for their dedicated purposes. I never really had the chance to play with one, since I have a dry loop.
