You've spent a lot of time carefully weighing all of the options available before choosing a modem that's appropriate for your specific needs. Between analog modems, cable modems, DSL modems and radio modems, there was a lot to consider. Now that you've picked the right modem, there are plenty of modem accessories to choose from.
Prevent voice calls from interfering with an established Internet connection using in-line filters, which help improve the performance of DSL modems. A DSL filter features two RJ-11 ports that allow you to plug in telephones, answering machines and other analog phone devices, which the device then filters to guard against interference.
For simple powering solutions, an AC adapter is the right tool for the job. AC adapters keep modems fully powered and ready for use by connecting a modem to an available, operational AC wall outlet. Look for adapters with longer cords for flexible placement options or shorter cords if the unit will be placed directly next to an outlet.
Do you spend a lot of time traveling internationally? If you're planning on studying abroad, working from another country or simply going on an extended vacation, modem accessories that offer global converters are an option that allow you to use a compatible modem in select countries around the world.
Don't forget to help keep your device protected and powered - whether at-home or while traveling abroad.
