I want to install 2 modems on one line , yes i would not be using both simultaneously as it isnt possible , I want to have two modems on ame line as the signal of the first wifi modem doesnt reach 1st floor and I already have one extra modem with me.
The setup of line is like this

At the first split: I'm guessing u already cut the wire, make sure its a good insulated joint and pray attenuation doesnt increase.. If u havent: normal rj11 (non adsl) phone line splitter at 2nd modem and run the wire up tp 1st modem.

However setting up a better wifi router or a wifi repeater is the wise thing todo.. u should get one 2k onwards.

hey why did you suggest to put normal splitter before modem 2 and bringing the wire to modem 1 . can i use adsl plitter at both joints??? the joint that i made isnt working properly. The problem with joint is that the 2nd modm works fine but in first one frequent disconnections occur , and i dont understand this cuz first modem links directly to main (through joint ) but still it has disconnection problem whereas when i use 2nd one ( 1st one off ofc) ,it works fine .

lets use proper nomenclature. adsl splitter is in actual a filter. the other is just a plain splitter.

1. reason why a splitter is to preceed filter: filters will give u two outputs.. one adsl and one filtered telephone outlet.. now considering adsl output went to your modem, u dont want to send telephone output to other modem would you? hence u split signal 1st then filter it near modem.

2. I'm guessing the line going to your 1st modem is shorter than the other one. but to my best guess damage has been done. you WILL experience frequent disconnections, building as carbon deposits on the joint. try asking a bsnl lineman to make the joint for you. he'd distribute it good. but now u dont need a splitter do u?

Hey i'm facing another problem with joint , when i make a new joint ,the line attenuation and SNR both are about 33 .but if i put a plastic tape around the joint ,attenuation rises above 40 . but if i dont put a tape around the joint ,then the joint works fine for 10-15 days then again attenuation rises cuz of copper corrodes ,i dont know what to do pleases suggest some method to keep the joint work fine for long time . PS I have 2 more joints in line but taping them isnt a problem and line attenuation remains same but this joint of 3 wires is causing trouble and i have to make new one after every 10-15 days.

Wow shreeyashattal was accurate in telling the details. This can be helpful when there is a two office setup in a single location and where your computer wont accept wireless.

If you go on making new joints every 10 -15, soon you'll have to buy new cables :p. Don't mind the attenuation as long as your connection is stable, and use insulating tape, if you haven't already.
