Actually without a filter on the line you should hear static when DSL is
active at least that is what I was told.

I think you aren't supposed to tell whether a telephone line has a DSL
activated or not, so I guess you don't hear anything but a dialtone.  I
think the idea is that you don't have to synchronize the installation of
the filters with the DSL activation at the central office.

Pacbell messed up our hookup, so we have separated voice and data lines
(three wires -- one shared between the two).  When I hook up a telephone
to the data line, I don't hear anything (unless I have my DSL modem hooked
up, in which case I hear negotation tones).
