Placement of DSL Splitter Hi There,
One question for you guys. I am going to place a dsl splitter from my NID and I want to know this: Should the splitter be placed after my 66/110 block or before. I was thinking of doing it before and have the NID feed into the splitter and then the splitter have a home run for DSL and then use the splitter voice output feed into the wiring block, which in turn leads to the phone jacks.
But I suppose that the NID can be fed into the wiring block, and then have everything go into the splitter, but I am not sure.
Any advice you can give would be appreciated.
The way I did it with the dsl splitter is -
NID with 10 foot of 4 strand (solid wire cable) to a jack,
dsl side to modem,
phone side of splitter to another jack to run to phone jacks in the rest of the house.
I recommend keeping the splitter and the modem as close to the NID as possible to get the best connection. The cable from the dsl side of the splitter to the modem should to be as short as possible as well.

You could do it either way honestly. Home run the DSL to the NID and then filter the voice side as a whole before it splits off is the simplest solution and usually the least error prone. Otherwise, if you weren't rewiring anything or some other reason, you could just put filters at each phone.
Personally I've always done a single main filter somewhere in the chain. You could use one of these Leviton DSL Filter Boards: »www.google.com/products/catalog?···BEPMCMAA. They can be had with or without a bracket so you don't have to use it with their structured wiring panel. This provides an all-in-one type solution and is especially helpful if your DSL modem is near the rest of your wiring.
