Hi I have a Broadband connection with a Siemens wireless router, but am using a wired connection via an Ethernet cable.
This has only just started happening of late, but 95% of the time, when i'm online & the landline phone rings, web pages don't load up & i get the 'problem loading page' error & also when i go to Mailwasher, check mail, i get the 'socket error # 10051' & the 'online' light on my router dims!! I've had the error # 10051 before, but not the dim light & page loading issue.
I say 95%, as occasionaly it works, but very slowly!
Hi Yes i have adsl filters & this has only of late started to happen having been ok for ages! I also have an issue where when i go to my webmail, i get several little 'bad username' prompts, i think this is because mail is coming in to my Outlook Express & my webmail at the same time whilst i'm logged in! They share the same addy! I'm on Orange Broadband plus.
Yes you can swap filters, it won't affect your router settings.
You need to shut down one of the email clients at least until you've sorted this problem. It certainly complicates matters!
Use a logical approach to determining the problem: First unplug every phone or other device from all phone sockets except the router/modem - ideally this should be the master socket. Do you still have the problem?
If it's Ok try adding a phone/device at a time - each with a adsl filter. Each device plugged in is likely to draw some power from the line and it's possible to overload the phoneline, this will affect your ability to connect.
