RE: [vox] dsl redux

I solved the filter issue at my last place and current place by having a
completely dedicated line to the DSL modem.  

In the past on an Alcatel modem on PacBell lines, I was occasionally the
subject of ping floods.  I would get packet loss and slow connection, but I
do not remember any time I lost a connection to that.  Not to say it can't
happen, just additional information.

I currently use a 3com dsl router on Frontier (formerly Citizen's DSL).
<sigh>  No competitors down here.

ok, perhaps.

maybe for you, but i've had an unfiltered phone for over a year without
DSL kicking out, and without a ton of line noise.  no bad effects at
all for over a year...
