Question about Siemens SpeedStream (SS3060) DSL Modem
It doesn't always happen, but is becomming more consistent. When I turn on my tv, it knocks everyone in the house off their computers. There seems to be either interference or a faulty modem or something b/c the "Active" light on the Speedstream 5100 modem goes out. The modem is connected to a wireless router (about 3 feet in distance from the modem).
The TV is connected to a satelite receiver which has an ethernet line hardwired to the router. The receiver also has a phone line with connected to it as well. Both ends of the phone line (into the wall jack and the receiver jack) has a dsl filter.
Possible issues in my mind are:
faulty modem (it's 6 years old or so)
interference with phone line
interference with ethernet line
bad fung shway (just kiddin')
What do you think?
If there is a filter on BOTH ends of the phone line that is the problem. There should only be one plugged into the wall. Take the phone line and plug it into the phone side of the filter. The end that plugs into your receiver should never have a filter on it. Also I've never heard of a receiver needing to be connected to a phone line AND a router. You usually only need one or the other but not both.
