    Does my Ademco Vista 20P need a DSL filter or does it have one built-in?

    The reason for my question is that my ISP is cable and they want to
    almost triple the monthy charge. I may have to switch to DSL.

    So, will I need to order that filter for the Ademco?

    just get one, they're only abt 20 bucks, if you need it you'll have it...if
    you don't just return it.

    I don't use the cable for anything other than internet. My TV watching
    is all antenna. And I have come up with a better solution...
    A DSL splitter.

    I'm well aware of how the splitter works. It will split the incoming
    line into 2 separate circuits.. One for DSL and one for the phones and
    the alarm. Running the regular talk line to the alarm panel and from
    there to the phones will keep that working like it's supposed to. A
    separate DSL line will run to the modem. No need for those filters on
    every phone. With this setup, the DSL is supposed to work better.
