ADSL won't synchronize - well, it will, but only when:
the microfilter is plugged directly into the phone socket,
then the telephone extension into the filter,
then router into the extension.
(That is to say, adding a splitter won't.
eg: Socket-splitter-extension-microfilter-router will not work.
It's a Solwise SAR715 router, all setup fine, and working great, somtimes.
It's an intermittent fault, it could work just great for a few hours, then go down and be unable to sychronize.
There's nothing else attached to the phone socket i'm using, just the filter and extension to the router. There WAS a splitter in the socket, then the filter in the splitter, but it didnt synchorinse until i removed the splitter.
You're going to suggest it was a dodgy splitter, but it was the 3rd one i've tried, and 2 of then were brand new. and All work with a phone.
Is there any reason a standard telephone splitter attached to the socket, before the filter, would stop the adsl from synchorinzing?
I'm in northen ireland, and I have asked the phone company to chek the line - we had a similar problem on another line - called an unbalanced line. they eventualy sorted it, but if the fault is at MY end, then we'll be charged for the callout fee (£100 ish)
