Phone and ADSL at the same time

I've got one of the dodgy batch of plusnet splitters, with from the usual problems of the line dropping every 4 or 5 minutes.

However, I've also noticed that when I use the phone at the same time, it is very difficult to hear the caller, because of the ammount of electronic computer signals on the same line.

Anyone else got the same experience?

This is what the filters prevent!
when you get some good filters the phone will be clear and the connection will stop dropping out.

RE: Phone and ADSL at the same time

I thought that might be the case, but not having experienced anything else I just wasn't sue whether the noise on the line was 'as good as it gets'.

Looking forward to the carrer pidgeon bringing the new splitters! Taking a while!

I just had my line activated and I installed 1 filter only (on the same socket where the router is connected), my other phone is connected without DSL filter and I have not experienced any noise or similar so farHuh
I can use both phone and Internet simulteniously with no line drops, sounds bizzar does'nt it, but I am happy if it stays this way.

Hope you get it sorted soon...
