    The filter is to be used between each phone and the phone jack, not the modem to the phone jack. That's why you typically get more than one.

    As for the adapters, Helen is right on the mark. Although voltage is important, the single most important issue is the polarity of the pin configuration of the plug. Pin Positive or Pin Negative, first and foremost. Then Voltage and finally Amperage.
    Life is what you make of please read the instructions carefully.

      yes Craig = you are correct. However, since I don't have a landline phone and only had a modem & fax machine at the time - the filter was used for those.

        That's what I did. I bought a 4 handset cordless phone on WOOT. Since I only need one handset, the other 3 batteries are held in reserve and I cycle them in and out periodically to keep all 4 batteries fresh.
