Pick up phone and ADSL drops line!!!

ADSL work fine but as soon as you pick up the phone the line drops. Filters are installed on phone and ADSL extensions. Anyone any ideas?

I had that problem. I wasn't using a microfilter thinking I could get away without using one.

Sounds like duff filters. The failure rate is pretty high on these. Take them round to a mates and try them on their setup.

I have exactly the same problem, and have had
since day one. Does that mean that the microfilters
are a bit naff then, or is it something more serious ? I see some comments about the m/filters.
It sounds like there's a potential problem here that
needs to be resolved.....

Hi John, Lee, Jasper

Are you guy using a BT approved m/filter like Fujitsu FDX100-UK?

You can check it out from www.dabs.com with a Quicklinx: 2849WS

Good luck!

I had a similar problem with the splitters supplied by PlusNet. I have tried a number of others, including the Fujitsu one, with varying results.

See the results of my experements at http://surf.whenyouwant.net/plusnet.html

The YCL microfilters supplied by PlusNet are junk.

I replaced them with Fujitsu FX100 from Dabs.com, they are £8 each but you get what you pay for...

I'll second that.

PlusNet said they'd send me some new ones because of the same problem, shitty YCL filters, they just don't like the phone being picked up.

I couldn't be arsed to wait so went and bought a couple form ye local computer shop. Problem solved.

So anyway, I took one of the new filters, and one of the YCL filters to bits.

YCL Filter: 2 components.
Cheap £4.50 filter that works from computer shop: 8 components - including the two that are in the YCL.

Re. the filters Mark.
Is it honestly as easy as that (just going out to
buy some different ones ?)

The type I have state on them :
YCL MicroFilter MF601UK.

And if they're as bad as a lot of people are stating
why the hell are they being dished-out with the
Dynamode A360 Modem ?

Jasper
