New ADSL connection... is my filter busted?
Posted on 2004-09-09
Had my ADSL turned on last night. After a bit of fiddling I managed to connect to the web using my router. However, one problem was noticed. So long as the ADSL filter is connected I can't receive or make phone calls. The phone makes a kind of hissing noise rather than getting a dial tone. And inbound calls claim I'm busy.
Now I've only got one filter (Off to buy more today) so I disconnected all my phones and other paraphernalia form the telephone sockets, except the filter which has one phone and the router plugged into it. Still no joy. Could the filter be up the creek? Or will I need to attach a filter to every phone socket in the house (Grand total of 7) before I can get rid of this phenomenon?
Thanks for your help people
