      Microfilter Shaking?

      Well i got 3 Microfilters for the phone lines with my Sky broadband, but the one which my modem is connected to rattles inside when you shake it but the others do not. Do you think i should replace the modem microfilter with one of the ones that does not make a rattling noise?

      Also do you just use the microfilters with the modem? or do you use them with the phones aswell?

      everything that plugs into the phone line should go through a filter (unless you have a ADSL face plate)

      all phones / fax / sky box

      not sure about the rattle in the filter you use, i'd swap it over myself

      Re: Microfilter Shaking?

      This morning i swapped the rattling microfilter from the router to a phone one so i put a non rattling one onto the router. Found that the rattling one i had conneted the phone to had cut the line of completly when i put my ear to it there was no dial tone, so i guess i will have to ask Sky for another microfilter and obviously this is the culprit to some of my BB problems.

      Oh yeah also my upload speed is 764 kbps and with the rattling microfilter it had a Noise Margin of around 10+ all the time but now with the non rattling filter the Noise Margin is about 8.5 - 9db. Might find a little increase in download speed as i got about 600 when i use to do a speed test.
