heard this one earlier in the pub. No its not a joke.

This guy using FS broadband, when online and if the house phone rings the computer crashes. I told him to make sure there are some of them Micro-filters on his sockets.

Has anyone else heard of this problem.

Seems like another BT Glitch, its not connected to my older post.

But this crashes the computer when online with B.Band and when the phone rings. Is it a computer fault or BT Line fault ?

Unplug the 56K modem.

If the BB modem line is not plugged into the filter properly, then the computer will disconnect from the net, but I've never heard of it crashing! Make sure there are filters plugged in to the wall sockets where a)the telephoneis connected,and b) where the computer is connected. Any other device,(fax machine etc) MUST have a filter also. That any help?
