Answering phonecall occationaly forcing resync


[link to this post]
 
Is there any chance this is a router fault?

Only one socket in the house and it has a Clarity Faceplate on it, thinking it was a filter problem i bought an ADSL Nation one but the router still occasionally resyncs when the phone is answered (the actual ringing doesn't make a difference).

There are no audible clicks, hisses or noise of any kind on the line.

Usually a sign of a line fault ('HR Dis').

Ask you ISP to test the line.

Errrr?

Illegal?

Possibly wreck the exchange end unless one is a BT engineer or similar?

Why might it help anyway if it has been working fine for years? Do you think the gremlins might have swapped them over? In any case, does it matter which way round they are, as long as there is no cross-over on the premises?

Swapping the pair around won't cause any problems. Sometimes pairs do get reversed by mistake.

How long have you been there, and how long since the problem started? (You will have seen the stuff about the A/B wiring - which quite definitely you are not supposed to touch). So if you just moved in, then there may be a problem with it, but it seems highly unlikely to me. If you have been there for years and had broadband for a while with no problem then it isn't the cause.

Reversing the A&B wires ? BT Engineer ? Damage at the exchange ? Suggested it because it was suggested to me by a BT engineer when I had a similar problem. It cured it.
