Connection dropped

Hi,

I am having problems keeping my broadband connection open at home. I am running Windows 2k and using a Binatone ADSL 2000 modem. I have this connected via USB to my PC.

I find that as I log-in there is no connection but if go to my telephone upstairs and take the receiver to make a call, then try to connect I seem to be able to get a connection. Why is this? I have an ADSL microfilter at the main point where the upstairs telephone and broadband connection meet.

Thanks,

Paul

Hi PaulSmith,
USB can have problems with loosing connections on susspend mode etc...(power saving)
That has nothign to do with the phone call thing however.  Just a thought.
consider disableing power managment if you think it is reasonable in your situation

Good luck!

nice page ;)

OT:
FYi my parents caller ID does now work when your on a call with DSL.  It did before. (call waiting ID).
To me it does not make sense if it works off the phone how it would not work on the phone.. unless they dropped that part of the service by accident.  Ever hear of that due to filters or whatever?

Thanks...  

regarding your CID..  never heard of that happening because of the filters, but I suppose it would depend on the frequencies involved..  It is recommended that they be placed on separate hard lines (wiring)..

I find it strange as well. But as soon as I boot up and want to connect, the only way is to lift the handset until I hear a shrieking noise on the phone.

You could try placing the filter directly on the line that the CID is on, instead of the split.  (This is where it is supposed to be located anyway.. )

I don't have Caller ID, just a standard phone. The filter is on the main socket point, there is no other place for it. I think I will have to speak to my phone company or ISP. Cheers for the tips anyway.
