I've just got connected to broadband, everything seems to be working nicely except that i've just found out that i cannot dial out from my telephone, yet i have no problems receiving calls.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I take it you are using your microfilters on the phone line?

Do you get dial tone? If so, try switching your phone fom tone to pulse, or vice versa. If that works, come back.

thanks for your responses, i've just done a bit of fiddling and have found that if i disconnect one of my filters everything works fine, the question i have now is will it do any harm to have one of my phones without a filter, there is no interference when i am not using it.

Do you mean there is interference when you are using it? If the filter is faulty, which seems to be the case, your ISP should send you another.

Should have added, it won't do any harm to have no filter, the phone doesn't affect the BB.

You may have problems without the filter but it will not do any harm/damage.

thanks guys for your help, had to nip out for a while, so i've only just read your replies. Graham - there was no interference when i was using the filter + there is no interference without it, so i assume i can leave it out.
Keith - read your link, but as i've said i don't seem to have any problems without the filter and everything seems to work fine.
