If i connect my sky wireless router to my BT phoneline, does it charge for the time you use as a normal phone call or does it just have a set charge whether it is on or off?

hi nikhil321...
if you have a broadband account with sky then there are no call charges from bt .
leave it on or switch it off it wont cost at all .Dave.

Oh ok thanks. Also, when i turn it on there is a background noise on the phone. Is there anyway that this can be fixed?

Have you fitted a Microfiler to the Phone Socket Like click here ADSL Modem in one side & Phone in the other.

Yeah I have. Is there a chance that the microfilter has a problem?

If you follow Sky's excellent instructions you shouldn't have a problem. My Sky Router came with 2 microfilters. If yours did have you used them both?

The Router is supposed to be connected directly to the main telephone socket and not used on an extension.
