    This may seem elementary, but just to make sure your setup is right...

    First, is your splitter also a DSL filter? If it is, it will have two ports and one will be labeled with something that identifies it as a DSL filter. The other port will be just a regular ol' phone line port.

    The end with the cable plugs into your house phone line. The 'ADSL' port on the splitter connects with a phone line running from your modem. The 'Phone' port, connects with a phone line running from your phone.

    A filter should be placed on all voice phone-based devices, including fax machines.
