If i connect my sky wireless router to my BT phoneline, does it charge for the time you use as a normal phone call or does it just have a set charge whether it is on or off?

hi nikhil321...
if you have a broadband account with sky then there are no call charges from bt .
leave it on or switch it off it wont cost at all .Dave.

Oh ok thanks. Also, when i turn it on there is a background noise on the phone. Is there anyway that this can be fixed?

Have you fitted a Microfiler to the Phone Socket Like click here ADSL Modem in one side & Phone in the other.

Yeah I have. Is there a chance that the microfilter has a problem?

If you follow Sky's excellent instructions you shouldn't have a problem. My Sky Router came with 2 microfilters. If yours did have you used them both?

The Router is supposed to be connected directly to the main telephone socket and not used on an extension.

If you want more help take a look at click here They also have specialist forums for Sky Broadband,
