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