INTERNET DISCONNECTS WHEN TELEPHONE RINGS

When our telephone rings the broadband internet connection, disconnects. The only way to get it to work is to ring the home phone number (sometimes 2 or 3 times. Then for some reason the internet comes back on. I am with Wannadoo and tey cannot help (pretty useless all of them). I have bought new microfilters but that hasnt helped. The phones are DECT ones. The total REM for all phones and ADSL/modem is 3. I am using a BT 2100 ADSL/modem router, but i have also tried Netgear and Belkin ones and they are the same. Any suggestions???

I have replaced all the filters at least three times. They make no difference.

Erm... Hit it with a sledge hammer?

Is there not a setting with dissconect when telephone rings or something?

Before I had Dial-Up so I knew.

how exactly do you have the netowrk setup? ie in what configuration are your phones, pc's, router and filters?

The ADSL router is plugged into the master BT socket via a micro filter. A dect phone is also plugged in here via the filter. This phone is part of a 3 phone set. We have another DECT phone plugged into a seperate socket via another filter. This is also an answerphone and has another handset in a different room (but not connected to the phone line direct).

Try unplugging the phone that is sharing the filter with the ADSL router....

What happens? does the internet disconnect when the phone rings?
