Broadband phoneline problems...

We recently upgraded to bt broadband and have a broadband line coming straight from the voyager router. Went well for a week or so.. now that line cuts off every 15 minutes or even less sometimes....Highly infuriating!!!
Any ideas anyone?

Have you put filters across ALL or any other phones in the house? I fell foul of that when I recently installed my Broadband. I had missed one of the extensions and if someone picked the phone up or someone had tried to ring in I was getting cut of.

Yes Expat all filters have been fitted.......hmmm although I did get two of them from ebay!! maybe they are a cheap design?!

It could well be the filters are poor quality. Is this 8 Meg?

  funbubble 21:57 11 Feb 07

Yes Dipso
...(up to 8meg!!)

See if your router is listed click here and post your line stats.

Have you got an electrical appliance that is cutting in and out on 15 minutes?

  funbubble 22:06 11 Feb 07

Thanks for that woodchip....
Other than my fridge or freezer possibly???....this could take a while to sort!!
I'll try to knock out the possible variables before posting again...
Cheers

It could well be your wiring. Do you connect through an extension? This is worth doing click here

Also check the Phone line does not run near Mains cable at any point

I took the filters out from (safecom Model SAMF-1000) that I had bought on ebay and it seems to have done the trick as we have not had cut offs since.
I did want to put the line stats up for comment but I do not know the administrators password on the home PC as I did not set it up.(Ideas welcome)
Cheers for now
