Other than an ugrade of drivers I can't be sure what to suggest...

Ask Bt to do a line check first, and increase the gain on the line. This can sometimes throw up a solution.

Next would be to check your phone sockets filters and connections. If you are unsure about this get someone who is to do it.

How many telephones do you have in the house, try unplugging one at a time as a minot fault on these can cause problems.

Also check your modem settings, use Orange help pages here.

I had the same problem, the cure for mine was.Go into network settings, click properties, then configure,then advanced, then connection type,change value to 10 base T half duplex.then O.K, do this on both computers and that's it. hope it works for you, it did mine.

Re: the above comment. Remember that advanced driver properties for network adapters will vary with each brand and model of adapter.
