Hey guys i am currently on AOL Broadband using a Thompson Speedtouch ST585v Modem Router.. My main problem is that my DSL Shuts off at least once a day and the only way to solve it is to dial on my landline telephone.. thats the only thing that "re-activates" the DSL its quite frustrating to be browsing or gaming and it suddenly drops any ideas to maintain it ???

Thanks

Tom

Purchase a DSL splitter and install it at the telco NID (Network Interface Device). This is the place the telephone lines come into your home wiring, usually either in the basement or outside near the other utilitiy connections. 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. The splitter I've used in the past is the Wilcom PS-36, it's good for any DSL/ADSL service worldwide.

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

Actually, you probably have a simple filter. In any case, the reason for the splitter at the service entrance is to run a clean line DIRECTLY to the modem and have all the other phone stuff behind the splitter. This eliminates issues with sub-standard wiring inside the house.
