    I had this problem when I first setup my wireless laptop. I bought a 5.8 cordless phone & everything worked great till recently. I have all my filters on. For about the past week evertime I answer my phone, I get kicked off line. I recently reinstalled a.o.l. on my laptop & I don't know if that had something to do with my problem. Thanks

    If you are using DSL, I suspect you have either wiring issues or a missing/defective filter.

    Here's my RX for bad DSL wiring.

    Purchase a DSL splitter and install it at the telco service entrance. Run a direct line from the DSL port on the splitter directly to the DSL modem. Connect all of the other phone instruments to the telephone output of the DSL splitter. All of the DSL analog side wiring should be CAT3 or better twisted pair from the telco service entrance to the DSL/ADSL modem. You can use one of the twisted pairs in CAT5 cable if you have that on hand.

    This is as good as it gets for DSL installations, and will usually solve in-house wiring issues.ing issues.
