Welcome To Linux Mint
Well I also have adsl,& I, or someone else could take a wild Guess & or come up with a theory as to why you have these issues. Or you could ask your ISP & get a more correct answer. Most of the time they can test the connection & line, as well as be able to tell you the correct way that your filter connects.

The ADSL POTS splitter is simply a series of coupled inductors and parallel capacitors forming a low pass filter that attenuates the higher frequency ADSL data and permits only the voice frequencies to reach the telephone. The series inductor shows high impedance to high freuqencies, so the ADSL signals on the line are not attenuated. There is nothing involved that would hurt the filter. You will simply have the high impedance at the wrong end. Simply take it out and reverse it.

The answer provided by FewClues is absolutely correct.

However, allow me to clarify a couple of points.

You do not need a splitter.

Your DSL device is impervious to the voice frequency.

However a lot of folks can hear the DSL frequency and thus a splitter is required
to filter out the offending noise. The closer you are to the Telco Central Office the louder
the DSL noise. If you are extremely close the DSL squeal is louder than the dial tone.

DSL filters go bad, some are defective right out of the box, yours may
have run it's course. If you don't hear any DSL noise on your telephone
then you can dispense with the filter completely.
Things are more like they are now than they ever were before.
