Noise on telephone line

I can hear an abnormal noise in the telephone handset that wasn't there before. It disappears when the router is switched off.
Would I be right in thinking the DSL filter is knackered?

Try another ADSL filter/splitter one and see.

What happens when you press 1 on the keypad. Does the noise go away?

No I can still hear it. Its just drowned out a bit by the tone noise the phone makes when pressing 1.

I tried a new filter but it didn't make any difference. However, I moved the phone away from the router and that cured it. Cheesy
