[kwlug-disc] YAK Internet + Home Phone deal for Kitchener

In not sure it matters where the alarm box goes. I've often put it in front 
of the DSL filter. In other words it's not protecting the alarm box.

The alarm box actually cuts off the rest of the house phones in order to 
make a call. This would drop the dsl and any phone conversation in place.

I would guess that you could have both the DSL and alarm use the line at the 
same time requiring the dsl filter in front of the alarm system.

Also, there is an alarm system in our house, and there is a box thingie that 
would interrupt the line if busy to dial out to the security monitoring 
center, if needed.

How would that interface with the demarcation filter? Would the filter be 
upstream or downstream from this security tap?

Installing a DSL filter at the demarc. is a fun way to simplify your
telephone wiring.  The advantage of not having to find a wall-mount
filter for a wall-mount kitchen phone is worth the price of admission.
 Plus the geek-cred of saying, "Demarc."

This could probably be a super-trivial 20 minute presentation if one
spoke really slowly while presenting it.  Shame it is hardware only.
Nothing to compile.
