I want to connect 2 ADSL routers on 1 BT line

Specs: Windows XP

Our church has 1 phone line, we run BTBusiness Broadband at one of the building where we have a couple of charities based. We have the phone line connected to an extension at the other end (where the Church is) >80m away. Does anyone know of a way of running a second concurrent router on the extension so I can set up an office with a VOIP number, pC's printers etc there too? We use Devolo ethernet over mains and wireless for the main building, but the church itself is on a completely seperate mains power supply so I can't use that. I could run 100m Cat 5 and locate a switch on that, but I wondered if anyone knows any way of achieving something similar over the phone cable which is already in place.

You can't use cat3 [telephone line] for connecting another router. 100m is the max for ethernet. Make sure you are within that boundry for total cable run. You should consider another dsl line to accomplish what you want.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

That was my initial thought, but I just looked and found a couple of options - e.g. The Jetcon2502 product see http://www.datalinkcom.net/industri...
and this product on the mayflex site

I don't know if this will work and have sent off a query. If the frequency could be sorted out, I can see that logically it should be possible.
