DSL line. Possible that filters are not plugged in.
When DSL service is being used on your line, filters must be installed at every jack that is in use. The DSL signal can cause static/noise, squealing (similar to fax tones) and other issues on your line. (ex. Caller ID problems).
In order to avoid having this issue, the service provider gives DSL filters to all customers when they sign up for service. These microfilters must be used because they allow your phones to work properly by blocking the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted through the telephones. DSL filters should be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. If you are not using the filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly Caller ID issues on your phones that are plugged into jacks without filters. Please contact your service provider for filter information and proper installation.
