This article provides a pictorial representation of how broadband equipment should be set up from your telephone master socket. It also illustrates how additional telephone sockets should be used without disrupting the broadband service. In order to configure most broadband routers, the following settings will be required.

Aquiss Broadband setup from the master telephone socket:
For optimum performance from your Broadband line connect your ADSL equipment from the BT master socket as illustrated in the image below.

Using broadband with additional telephone sockets and devices:
You will need to connect an ADSL filter to any additional telephone sockets that you may be using with other telephones, fax machines or digital/satellite set top boxes. The guide below shows the right way to ensure that these devices are filtered correctly.


General Technical Details:
Once your hardware is setup as described above, you will need to configure your Broadband Router/Modem to connect to Aquiss. The method in which this is done differs slightly from manufacturer to manufacturer. You should consult your Router/Modem manual for guidance on how best to achieve this. However, the configuration details will remain the same. Below is a list of technical details that you may need to configure your Broadband Router/Modem.
