      Conecting when outside call made

      Can anyone answer my query. I have Sky broadband and a BT land line. I have to make a outgoing call out every time I want my router to connect to Sky broadband. Once the call has been made the connection tends to remain in place until I turn my computer off. I have been in contact with BT who tested my line and advise that it seems to be a sky problem.

      Anyone with a similar problem??

      Hi there

      I have sky broadband ( connect )and BT line, I've never had to do that as broadband and telephone are two different lines.I had to dial a number when i was on AOL but never sky,just double click firefox and on the net.

      Have you something in your computer that is making you dial number?

      Did have

      Sounds like you have a noisy line BUT here is the weird bit, its only noisy when connecting to BB and somehow by making a call it masks the noise.

      I had this problem for a long time and only resolved it by T3 reducing my connect speed till the noise went away.
