DSL and analog (phone) signals coexist on the same line. As long as the DSL line is not wired in any special way, the phone (or DSL line) theoretically should work anywhere there's a phone jack. I had some problems myself years ago---being right on the border of DSL service. I did have to have a phone tech split the line (which seems to have cured the problems).

You shouldn't need a splitter but what you will need is a DSL filter on any socket that has a telephone connected to it.

To the uninitiated this looks like a splitter because it has one input ans two outputs, one for DSL and one for telephone. But is isn't, it is a filter, The telephone line has the DSL signal filtered out. The DSL line is unfiltered..
