DSL stands for digital subscriber line and uses phone lines to transfer data. A DSL modem converts that data into high-speed Internet. Because data is being transferred on a phone line where only voice is normally transferred, a noticeable static remains on the phone line. To remedy this, you need to install DSL filters along with the DSL modem. As with setting up any DSL modem, setting up an STC DSL modem simply requires connecting all of the wires properly.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Phone line
  • DSL filters
  • Ethernet cable

  1. 1

    Connect one DSL filter between the phone line and the wall jack of each connected phone. This will prevent your phone calls from having the static of DSL interference.

  2. 2

    Connect a phone line directly into the wall jack (without a filter) where you want your DSL modem and connect the other end into the back of the modem. The DSL modem cannot work with a DSL filter.

  3. 3

    Connect an Ethernet cable into the back of the DSL modem and connect the other end into the computer.

  4. 4

    Turn on the DSL modem.
