Well, while decorating, and running a script on my router lots of times, I noticed that when the phone rings, CRC and HEADER errors go up a lot, like 2 (for each) every 5 seconds. If the phone doesn't ring, they sit still and stable (no errors) - I don't have to answer the phone either for this to happen, just let it ring!
So I unplugged the phone. Rang my number again, and, yep, CRC and HEADER errors go up again in the same fashion.
So what is going on here? Is my line truly that bad? Why can a simple phone call affect a ADSL signal if I have no phone connected? What can I do next after BT engineers say all is hunky dory*?
*I guess as the Government's aim is to get everybody at least a 2mb connection, then this is acceptable.
