yes I know all that bit about reporting faults and I have. It turned out to be an exchange fault after BT had a look at it. But what I wanted to know was how, when the Telephone Line was and is Dead can I still use the broad band on the same line? The bit about filters: I have filters on both the phones in the bedroom and Hall also on the phone in my office and the BB is conected to that filter, whilst that is the correct way to do it I have also come across phones pluged straight into the phone line on an enabled BB line without ANY problem both to the phone or the BB conection.
BT claim that the fault will not be fixed until friday night, but in the mean time I have BB to contact the outside world.
i have come across this prob before and it doesnt add up!!..you need a telephone line connection to get dsl and if phone line is down how the hell can the dsl signal be recieved....never mind ...another one for the boffins to figure out!! regards karl
their is a 50v acroos the line and yes you can have the broadband without the phone working i had a problem were their was to much power on the line and caused my broadband to drop so i would guess to little is ok with broadband to much and its no good
