Adsl router line problem

  sezchwarn 12:42 15 Sep 2009

The internet will often stop working, generally later in the day and to fix it, we have to take out the adsl/phone line and reinsert it. This seems to fix the problem till next time.
Am I right in thinking this would be a problem with the router and not the isp?

It could be a lot of things, possibility the router but you could have noisey line and your ISP may have to raise your noise levels on the line, as this is the most common reason the line drops out.

Don't forget that every phone point needs a working filter. Try removing all telphones and just use the computer with a new filter and se how you get on, but I would contact your ISP.

Are you using the main incoming socket in the property, if not give it a try. Does the telephone sound clear when you use it when the internet drops.
