Phone won't ring?

I have two phone sockets in my house, both have filters attached. Upstairs where my PC is plugged in, the phone won't ring. Any idea why? There is also noise on this line. Cheers.

This sound to me like a broken filter. You should have no noise on the line when listening through a handset which is attached to the socket through working filters.

This is the filter from Plus Net - can it be returned to them as faulty? I am a new subscriber. Thanks for your help.

Before returning the filter, have you tried swaping the filters around just to prove it is the filter.
Also, without a phone connected downstairs, remove the filter downstairs and try it upstairs.
I would suspect that the "ring" line is strait through and does not go through any filter components. (anyone got a circuit diagram to confirm this ??)

If you prove it is the filter, you will have to contact plusnet for a replacement.
