      Try swapping the filter thingy for a different one

      It really does sound like an adsl filter problem. how many phones do you have? Are the phones being filtered?

      And your Sky box, you need a filter on that too.

      Try unplugging all of them apart from 1

      You can only have an REN of 4 in a domestic home

      Each phone is 1.0 normally etc, check the bottom of the phone base unit, it will tell you there. so 4 x 1.0 plus sky box could be tipping it over the edge?

      Just try this quickly

      If your dsl drops every time the phone rings, there are usually 2 things that cause this.

      1) a bad filter in your house. If a filter is bad or missing it can cause the dsl to drop either when the phone rings or if someone picks up the phone with the bad filter.

      2) The other reason could be on Qwest's side. It's called a POTS splitter. You have one of these if you have BOTH phone and DSL. It's what sort of combines the 2 together. There are a number of problems that can occur with a bad pots splitter. i.e. DSL works - phone totally dead, Phone works-dsl - totally dead, disconnects, etc...

      I suggest that you hook up the dsl modem by itself. DISCONNECT ALL PHONES IN THE HOUSE. Do NOT have anything connected at all except the dsl modem. No filters, phones, directv, digital cable, or anything else in a phone jack. Then when you are up and surfing, take your cell phone and call your house. Technically it should just ring and ring. Unless you have voice mail in which case it will go to voice mail after so many rings. Anyway, see if when the line is ringing in your cell phone if it is dropping you off. If it DOESN'T, then it's probably one of the filters, jacks, or wiring.
      although not Sky specific try the advice in bold
