A few days our connection started playing up, it would only connect for around 30 seconds and it would rarely even connect. I noticed when it got dark it did connect again, I thought it was a fluke, but its done it again tonight. We noticed crackling on the phone line too today.
I rang up sky yesterday and they did a line test found nothing wrong but could see all the disconnections from the logs, he eventually wanted me to take the faceplate off as usual but I need to find a converter for the square end (rj-11?) to a rectangle end so it can fit in the test socket as it fits into a filtered faceplate now.
Is my filtered faceplate kaput? We have had trouble with disconnections when it rains too ever since we moved here, so I doubt the line coming to our house is very good quality. I just don't see how it can go for being fine, then at 1:15 about 3 days ago it stops connecting.
Its connected a lot slower now than usual (4mbps down), but at least the connection is up
