Lost Sync when phone call made or answered
« on: March 08, 2006, 08:52:52 PM »

I have friend with AOL broadband on voyager 105
There is a BT portable phone attached to filter as well as modem.

when phone call is made or answered the modem drops the broadband signal instantly then resyncs whilst voice call in progress
Have replaced micro filter - no change

I Have not seen this before

Any Ideas

Hi there, and welcome to the forums :)

Has your friend got any other telephone equipment in the house? By this I'm including other phones at other points, sky boxes (they can be particularly bad and normally require quite high-quality filters), alarm systems, etc.

Not sure if you're aware, but all of these have to be filtered too.

Without more information it's obviously difficult to make assumptions and recommendations. What I find useful is sometimes to draw a diagram of your phone wiring and work out at which points it's best to place the microfilters.

Remember of course that the telephone port on a microfilter cuts off the broadband signal, so you can't plug the modem into an extension that has already been filtered further upstream, if that makes sense?

If there's no other equipment plugged into the phone line, it might be worthwhile trying a different model of filter, although the ones BT give out are usually quite good.

Failing that, it might be a fault with either the phone or modem, or even on the telephone line, but from the symptoms described, it sounds quite unlikely.

Hope that helps, please don't hesitate to post back with further information / queries if you need :)
