I was wondering if anyone has experienced the following problem.
I have 1 BT socket in my home and if I connect just my router it connects at about 4300k which for my area is about right. If I then plug my phone into the same socket (other side of my filter) the connection speed drops to 2900k then if I add my sky plus telephone connection this drops further to 1200k.
All of these speeds are from the Gateway Status screen on the router.
I have tried 3 filters and the speeds are consistent. I have had BT test the line and they say it is fine. They have even checked the internal wiring and said it was the extra socket we had, but this is now completely disconnected and the speeds are exactly the same.
It seems to be that the more I connect to the line the lower speed I get which seems to be a line fault, but if BT come out again and they say it's not they are going to charge me £120!!
Thanks in advance for any help ;o)

Suggest you take line stats for your standard setup, and also without phones connected. It might shed a little more light. It might be a number of things, such as the filter (seems a little unlikely if on your third) or even a line break / bad connection somewhere.
