Would I be able to install the DSL modem and phone filters myself?

Asked by gailcalled (54563points) June 11th, 2008

I have an automatic tape that dials the sheriff’s office for burglar alarm and four phone jacks – one of them a double thingy for computer dial-up. (Stop laughing.) Should I just pay someone? (iMac OS 10.4.11)

okay, just kidding. honestly, i don’t think installing the dsl modem and filters is that hard. they come with instructions and i KNOW you can read :).

and plus, if you have any problems, you can always tap the collective. I have installed them numerous times now, never had a problem. Don’t pay someone for it! They will know you are clueless if you are paying them to install something like this and will probably overcharge.

PnL: where did you say you live?

Nah! Just make sure you have enough filters for all your phone jacks, and anything else that maybe connected to the phone line. Let’s just say my 12 yo could do it when he was 10.

10 year olds are always good with technology they were the only people who could program a video recorder!
