The filter might be bad. Try another filter. If the wires are cross in the filter it could cause that.

Why does phone need dsl filter


Did the other phone quit working? If you have DSL there could be a splitter installed at you NID? (Network Interface Device) put there by the phone company, it could have gone bad. Do you have other phones in the house, and are they working or not. try another jack? you may just have a bad jack where you are.

Can canon mf4370 fax on dsl line


Fax machine operation can be interrupted by DSL lines, however, because the DSL signal is also transmitted through phone wiring. This can result in a loss of data in the fax if steps are not taken to prevent it. Fortunately, this is not a difficult thing to fix.


Items you will need

  • DSL filter
Step 1

Unplug the fax machine from the phone jack.
Step 2

Plug your DSL filter into the phone jack. DSL filters are specifically designed to eliminate interference from the DSL line on your phone line.
Step 3

Plug the fax machine into the phone line jack on the DSL filter. You can now use your fax machine and DSL line at the same time without risk of data loss or interference.

WHENEVER THE PHONE RINGS OR SOMEONE IS ON THE PHONE OUR INTERNET STOPS WORKING. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING OVER THE LAST 4 DAYS OR SO


Im assuming you are using DSL. You need to have DSL filters on all phone jacks in your house that have phones plugged into them as well as having a filter where your phone line plugs into the phone jack. Any time the phone rings it will cause interference and cause the DSL to malfunction.

What to do if dsl light is blinking


This likely means that your DSL modem is not trained up with the DSLAM. - Geek talk for your modem is not connected to the phone company's equipment properly.

1.) Remove power from the modem

2.) Remove all devices (including the DSL modem) from all phone jacks in the house.

3.) Add the DSL line back to the wall jack, taking care to plug the wall jack into the correct jack on the DSL line. (Do not use a DSL filter on your modem!)

4.) Power up the modem/

Still not working? Continue...

5.) Try a different phone jack

6.) Try a new phone cable between the wall jack and modem

7.) Call the phone company for further assistance.

When my phone rings the kids get booted off xbox live and i have wireless internet and wireless adapter for xbox360


Hi Jeannie,

Based on your problem I assume that you have DSL. When you get hooked up for DSL they send filters that you are supposed to put between EVERY phone and the jack. (Don't forget phone lines for satellite and alarm systems).

If your dsl drops every time the phone rings, there are usually 2 things that cause this.

1) A bad filter in your house. If a filter is bad or missing it can cause the dsl to drop either when the phone rings or if someone picks up the phone with the bad filter.

2) The other reason could be on your ISP's side. It's called a POTS splitter. You have one of these if you have BOTH phone and DSL. It's what sort of combines the 2 together. There are a number of problems that can occur with a bad pots splitter. i.e. DSL works - phone totally dead, Phone works-dsl - totally dead, disconnects, etc...

I suggest that you hook up the dsl modem by itself. DISCONNECT ALL PHONES IN THE HOUSE. Do NOT have anything connected at all except the dsl modem. No filters, phones, directv, digital cable, or anything else in a phone jack. Then when you are up and surfing, take your cell phone and call your house. Technically it should just ring and ring. Unless you have voice mail in which case it will go to voice mail after so many rings. Anyway, see if when the line is ringing in your cell phone if it is dropping you off. If it DOESN'T, then it's probably one of the filters, jacks, or wiring. If it still disconnects, it's probably the POTS splitter with your ISP.

Good luck and if this helped please help me out and leave feedback!

Thanks!

I have a hard wired wall mounted telephone (not modular). I need to insert a DSL modular filter into the circuit. What do I need to do convert the hard line to a modular line so I can insert the DSL...


Here's a thought. The DSL filter doesn't have to go on every phone, just the phone line that FEEDS the phone. In old residential, the phone line is looped to each location. If you open up another jack and break the loop, you could possibly find out where the first jack is in your house, put a duplex jack there, feed the DSL modem, and filter all the rest of the lines in the house at that location. Or, go outside, bring the dial tone in on the black/yellow or orange pair, install your DSL modem on that pair, and filter the dial tone back into the green/red pair for the rest of the house.

You can also buy a wall plate with DSL filter in it. Screw your chair closer to the floor before you go here :-) http://www.sjtelecommunications.com/sut-630lccl-s.html

Cordless phone has volume problems with DSL


For starters that dsl modem should not be filtered.
You should place the splitter directly into the wall jack and place the filter on the side used for the phone. The side feeding the dsl line should not be filtered.
The filter serves 2 purposes. 1 it reduces data noise interference onto the voice line. 2 it prevents dsl interference from voice such as picking up and hanging up the receiver.

I have dsl and can't figure out where to plug my phone jack too.


your dsl should have come with some line filters to put on your regular phones as well as fax machines. Split your incoming phone line with a phone splitter from radio shack plug the dsl into one of the two ports and the filter into the other. On the output of the filter you are allowed to split again to as many devices as you need phones and fax machines alike.
