Well yeah. you just tried to connect to yourself. I think what is
suggested is that 192.168.1.1 is the router that the ILEC gave you, try
setting your ethernet card to 1.2 (ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.2 netmask
255.255.255.0) or use dhclient on it to get a dhcp address (dhclient eht0)

You MIGHT hear some line noise on that one phone, the filter only
filters the high pitched DSL noise from your phone so you dont hear it.
Most of the time I'd forget to install them when moving phones around my
house, I never noticed. So yes, dont worry.
