      I just took out the telephone that was connected to the broadband filter, the same broadband filter is used for the line connected to the router and found that my noise margin has increased by 1.

      Is this simply a coincidence?

      no, if you reboot when the internet is at its busiest and the lines are at its noisiest then you should hold that margin for days or weeks, lets see if it is the noise margin causing the problems first.

      you could try a new filter or do a search on the forums for faceplate, some people have had better results with a new faceplate,

      you must be quite far from the exchange ?
