Yes it will.
You need to do some rewiring in the house so that the DSL signal only goes to your DSL modem and not to any of the other jacks in the house

I think you may have great intentions but your warning is not totally correct.

If you are not planning on using your house wiring to power corded or additional cordless base stations, then no rewiring is required. You can plug a multiple handset cordless base into either the hub or Telo and have as many phones as that system supports. I have a Uniden DECT 6.0 5-handset system plugged into both my hub and my Telo. No house wiring connection required. If you have the Telo, it also has its own built-in DECT base station that can serve as many as 4 Telo handsets. The only time you need to be concerned about DSL on your house wiring is if you are using the house wiring to connect additional phones or (on the hub) a scout.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.

I'm kind of confused here. I have dsl and at&t phone service. I am waiting to get my number ported before I disconnect at&t service but I am going to dry loop the line for dsl. Do I need to do anything special once I get rid of at&t?
