broadband and telephone interference

  poheZ 21:17 11 May 2009


I have used a Linksys wireless G ADSL router and digital cordless phone on the same line with a filter for many months witout any problems.

About 1 month ago we started to get interfernce on the phone (crackling and general fuzz), when i removed the modem plug from the filter the interfernece went. I change the filter and the problem was still there. So i plugged the phone into the first BT point and the line was clear, then i plugged the filter into the point and the modem and phone into the filter and the interference was still their.

I have even tried using a different phone with no success.

Does anybody know why this would suddenly start to happen?

Don't why it's just started to happen, but they work on the same 2.4 GHZ frequency so they can conflict.

Have you tried changing wireless channels - try 1, 6 or 11 - NO OTHER MIND!

thanks mate

i have tried that and no luck, i still get the interference when i use my corded phone so it cant be the phone.

I havent even brought anything or touched the house wiring-it just suddenly happen.

The line seems fine when i have the broadband unplugged

Sounds like a filter problem.

If you've swapped out for a known good one, I'm afraid you may have to phone your ISP. I hope your phone company nd ISP are the same, if not you may find that they'll blame each other :(
