    Hi.
    Well I have played about with various plugging arrangements.
    Following reading in the Philips HfC171 manual, it talks about this unit
    being the first item onto the line. This is was prior to broadband followed
    by a couple of phones.

    Following broadband and its filters (3) this was probably not as it saw
    itself.

    I have placed one filter into BT's socket run an american type plugged lead
    to the broadband modem, then plugged the fax/phone into the filter. The
    plug of the fax/phone has a skt on it to which I have plugged a tripple
    adaptor and run leads from this to my 2 phones.

    Computer works ok, phones work and incoming calls ringing problem seems to
    be cured.

    Question is ok to only use one filter for all 3 phones?
    Am I liable to damage anything?

    Volume is down slightly, but I think it was the same when I used all 3
    filters.
