      Sky broadband being knocked out by phone ringing - only on V2 routers...

      hey guys and gals

      now over the last 12 weeks lots of threads including some of my own have been appearing on the issue of the broadband connection being knocked out by the phone/landline ringing.

      now i have noticed a trend.. i had a sagem router which i got sent to me from sky when i first joined 4 weeks later the problem with the phone occured

      i tryed everything filters. faceplates everything except from one thing .. a different router

      i was at a local car boot when i spotted a old v1 netgear dg834gt router for sale and that gave me a thought i havent tried another router so i purchased it from the old guy took it home and tried it got a nice 2.5mb connection on a long line of 63.5db !

      it has stayed like this since and even hasnt cut out when the phone rings

      now another member on here has got the same problem as i used to have with his v2 router but thing is that its the dg934g A V2 ROUTER


      so this is the trend ive spotted that this problem is only occuring on v2 routers

      please correct me if im wrong but i think this is a major bug in the v2 routers that is causing this to happen..

      Nope not a bug, probably just faulty routers. I've got about 5 V1 routers in my shed, none of them sorted out my Phone/BB issues. It turned out to be a bad joint and have never looked back since.

      If it's a major bug, how come they have not been loads of v2 users with the same problem. Mine is fine and dandy in all respects.
      Or do you mean just Netgear v2?

      ^^^^^^^^^^
      I think that is because most people with V1 routers have had their problems sorted out. V2s are still relatively new, as are the users, so faults are being sorted out on them now. If you had been on the forum over a year you would have seen plenty of 'phone call drop out' complaints, most of which were down to faulty wiring.
