The DSL modem should plug into the phone socket WITHOUT a filter. All the other phone/modem/fax devices that used to be plugged into the wall directly should now go thru a DSL filter.

The reason being: The DSL signal itself comes over the same wires as the standard telephone (voice) signal, but while it doesn't superimpose itself, there can be some inconvenient interferences/noises that degrades voice quality. The DSL filter will clean/block that out and your standard phone devices will enjoy pretty much the same signal quality than before your line got the DSL signal.

The wall socket, since it's intended for phones, not ethernet
