I just moved in with a roommate who has DSL installed in the house. Each of the phone jacks has the ability to connect a DSL modem to it. Is it possible to connect two DSL modems in the house at the same time (one in his room and one in mine)? I've only tried by moving his modem and plugging it into my jack, but have not tried two at the same time. Would this be possible to use the existing jacks in each room or would I need to connect one modem to a router and then run a cable to the other room?
Also, the DSL and phone line use the same jack. I tried to connect to AOL via dial-up and was unable to establish a connection. I noticed that my roommate has some sort of splitting device on his line (phone jack goes splits to phone line and DSL line). Do I need this device to use the phones on all the jacks in the house? Thanks!
