My ADSL modem disconncects almost every time an incoming voice call is received. It will reconnect during the voice call, however.
I have reduced everything in my setup to just the test socket, a new wired handset and modem/router with an Ethernet connection to a single PC. No WiFi and no DECT phones.
I have swapped out my (almost new) TP-Link modem/router for a new HomeHub 4 with no change to the disconnects.
My phone service is with BT and my ISP is Plusnet. Plusnet have raise the SNR margin but this has not changed the dicsonnects (but did have a big impact on broadband speed).
Plusnet are saying that ther is a clear fault with the voice service. BT are syaing that their testing of the line shows there are no faults and the problem must lie with Plusnet. I am in a complete stalemate now.
Anyone had any experience of how to unblock two companies pointing fingers at each other like this?
so you pay BT for your phone line and plusnet for you broadband - ie you don't pay your line rental to plusnet as part of your package?
you have a high resistance fault which you need to report http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/connectionprobs.htm
Hi - thanks for responding
It's a weird historical setup. Line rental and voice calls are from BT. Broadband service is from Plusnet.
BT continually ignore any references to HR faults stating repeatedly that the line has been tested OK.
I'll take a look at the link ....
Quiet line test is not quiet at all. Lots of gentle fizzing.
How come the comprehensive line test run by BT cannot detect this?
