Crazy ADSL connection

  281apple 07:44 06 Aug 2006

Yesterday I was talking with someone in the States with Skype using ADSL and my home phone rang. My wife answered and it immeditely cut my Skype connection OFF and my modem no longer worked. The light on the modem just continued to blink and after 15 minutes I disconnected it and shut down my laptop. I opened my laptop 30 minutes later and the modem worked and I called on Skype. While talking someone again rang my home phone and the modem shut down again.
Can anyone help me to understand?

Have you got a filter fitted to the phone line?
