Hi, for some time now i lose internet connection whenever the phone rings. This is quite annoying especially when Im in the middle of something.
The internet comes back on about 2 minutes after the phones down, but is there anyway i can stop this happening?
Thanks

Sounds like you're missing an ADSL Microfilter. You'll need them for phone extensions as well as the main socket.

I have ye exact same problem. Contacted BT about this and they say they will charge me £100 to have it fixed.

However I did realise that if you have more than one landline phone in use at home. You should disconnect the other phone, but keeping your main phone on. That way your Internet connection will not be disconnected.

Sorry to hijack this thread but I'm also having the same problems as the OP but I have a filter in the only place where the phone line is connected.

You need the filter on every extension.
