  1. i have the usb single user modem that came with bulldog. the thing is that i own a belkin ethernet modem and the wire from the microfilter that currently goes into the usb modem doesnt fit in the belkin router. i know i need ethernet from the phoneline but don't know how to get it.

    1) is there a different microfilter that contains an ethernet plug??
    2)will i have to buy a different modem that allows me to put in the ADSL line one end and then get ethernet out the other?
    3)if i do have to buy a new modem can anyone recommend one???

    thanks, sorry if i didnt explain the problem very well!!!

    What kind of plug does your Belkin modem accept?

    If the one coming out of your microfilter is a narrow one (RJ11) then you can plug it into the wide (RJ45) socket no problem - the wires used by telephones match across these plugs. If things are the other way around then you can just go buy a cable with proper plugs or an adapter. You can also run the thing without a microfilter just fine.
