Cheapo landline phone (a tenner) has miserable effect

Had to replace landline phone. Now find with the thing plugged in, internet light on my 2011 router box won't come on. Have to disconnect phone and re-establish internet session. Do I have options? (and would be interested in what is going on) Thanks.

Are you using a filter?

Sounds like a broken filter!

I think you've nailed it in a way. I have 2 landline phones. I've put a newer filter which was with an older phone (20 years) with the new phone, and used the former filter for the older phone. It works!

 

Thank you and all who took an interest.
