Can have problems ringing
on 16 July 2010
This extender does extend your phone signal fine, but it doesn't seem to send the bell line, which is something specific to the british phone system. Most modern phones don't use the bell line, so that is not an issue in general, but older phones like the BT Diverse phones only ring if you have the bell line connected.
You can work round this by installing an ADSL filter after the output of the receiver unit, because in addition to their normal job of filtering out the ADSL signal, ADSL filters also re-create the bell line signal. It's a pain that you have to do this though, and it wasn't documented anywhere on the manufacturers web site.
