Of course, if you want a phone point in the living room (as well as router) then you should run a normal extension, from the extension point inside the main part of the master socket, and use a microfilter at the extension.
You have that precisely and completely the wrong way round.
The modem (within the router), always does and always has received the full signal on the line. The filter system merely removes the broadband signal from the phone socket. Otherwise your eardrums would disintegrate rapidly!
On the Openreach filtered master faceplates of all generations, the ordinary extensions from Terminals 2, 5 and sometimes 3, are phone only. There is no broadband signal on them.
Edit: To clarify, on the old NTE5 with no filtered faceplate
then yes, 2 and 5 carry both. But the filtered faceplates change that. It's the telephone that has to have the broadband signal removed, not
the modem that needs the phone signal removed. The modem simply ignores the phone frequencies so doesn't care.

Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests normally 35-45Mpbs down, 65Mbps off-peak, 9-24 up. BQM
If you never think of anything off the wall, you'll never think of anything original.
