Hi - You don't need a filter on the router line, that would stop it from working!

The purpose of the filter is to stop the "modem" noise from affecting the phone call.

The dual filter you describe can be used as a "splitter" so you can use the phone & router (DSL) in the same wall socket.

Hope that clears it up!

Why does phone need dsl filter


Did the other phone quit working? If you have DSL there could be a splitter installed at you NID? (Network Interface Device) put there by the phone company, it could have gone bad. Do you have other phones in the house, and are they working or not. try another jack? you may just have a bad jack where you are.

1.Unplug all phone, fax and satellite TV cables from the wall phone jacks.

2.Plug the double DSL filter into the wall phone jack where the 2701HG-B will be located.

3.Plug the phone wire (for phone, fax, etc.) into the jack on the filter labeled "Phone."

4.Plug the gray phone cable into the other jack on the filter labeled "DSL."

5.Add the single DSL filters on all remaining phone jacks in the same manner, plugging the device phone cables into the filter. The single filters only have one jack.

Ethernet Connection

6.Plug the power adapter into the power port on the back of the 2710HG-B router and then plug the other end into a power outlet. This will cause the power light on the front of the router to turn green.

7.Plug the free end of the gray phone cable into the port on the back of the router labeled "Phone Line."

8.Plug one end of the yellow Ethernet cable into one of the four ports on the back of the router labeled "Ethernet."

9.Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into your computer's Ethernet port. The Ethernet light on the router should now be green.

Wireless Connection

10.Plug the power adapter into the back of the 2701HG-B and the wall power outlet.

11.Plug the gray phone cable into the jack on the back of the router labeled "Phone Line."

12.Open the Network and Sharing Center on your computer by right-clicking the Internet connection icon in your taskbar.

13.Click "Set up a new connection or network" and follow the instructions provided by the wizard to set up the wireless connection on your computer.

14.Enter the SSID and WEP key when prompted. The SSID is "2WIRE" followed by the last three digits of the router's serial number, which is located on the bottom side of your 2701HG-B router. You will also be prompted to enter a WEP encryption key, also found on the bottom side of the router. The WEP key is the 10 digit number that appears in brackets under the first bar code.

I have an at&t 2wire 2701hg-b but i dont have at&t internet i have charter and i am not able to figure out how to get my internet to work with this router please help


att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet .
These two jacks differs and there working differs ..
Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication .
Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.

WHENEVER THE PHONE RINGS OR SOMEONE IS ON THE PHONE OUR INTERNET STOPS WORKING. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING OVER THE LAST 4 DAYS OR SO


Im assuming you are using DSL. You need to have DSL filters on all phone jacks in your house that have phones plugged into them as well as having a filter where your phone line plugs into the phone jack. Any time the phone rings it will cause interference and cause the DSL to malfunction.

I have a hard wired wall mounted telephone (not modular). I need to insert a DSL modular filter into the circuit. What do I need to do convert the hard line to a modular line so I can insert the DSL...


Here's a thought. The DSL filter doesn't have to go on every phone, just the phone line that FEEDS the phone. In old residential, the phone line is looped to each location. If you open up another jack and break the loop, you could possibly find out where the first jack is in your house, put a duplex jack there, feed the DSL modem, and filter all the rest of the lines in the house at that location. Or, go outside, bring the dial tone in on the black/yellow or orange pair, install your DSL modem on that pair, and filter the dial tone back into the green/red pair for the rest of the house.

You can also buy a wall plate with DSL filter in it. Screw your chair closer to the floor before you go here :-) http://www.sjtelecommunications.com/sut-630lccl-s.html

Lose DSL connection when tv is turned on.


If there is a filter on BOTH ends of the phone line that is the problem. There should only be one plugged into the wall. Take the phone line and plug it into the phone side of the filter. The end that plugs into your receiver should never have a filter on it. Also I've never heard of a receiver needing to be connected to a phone line AND a router. You usually only need one or the other but not both.

you have the DSL filters plugged into all your telephones, but NOT plugged into the DSL modem?

is the DSL modem configured to automatically connect using your username and password?

have you tried using a different phone cable, or plugging into a different phone jack?

2701HG-B


Hi. I will not repeat the check the phone line and resetting comments as it's now redundant.

I always have a spare modem as a line tester.

I've seen several 2700HG-B 2wire modem/routers burn out and every single time it's the DSL signal or modem portion that is burnt out. Even if you have two or three phone line surge protectors these 2700s are prone to shorting out unless you have a direct signal splitter DSL setup.

Here are a few things you can try to confirm if the 2700 is no longer functional on the DSL signal light problem.

#1: Turn on (plug in) your 2700 without the phone line plugged in and wait. If the DSL starts flashing red then there is a hardware problem in the modem/router.

#2: Plug the phone line into the 2700 while the dsl light is flashing red. It might take about 3 seconds however it should start to flash green and let it flash for about (usually) three minutes. If it turns red then the 2700 is indeed damaged.

#3: If you can enter into your modem using the http://2wire... and check the connection status. The first two status lines should read attempting to connect and no connection.
