      Noisy tel line and internet probs please help

      Hi
      I am new to this site so hi everyone.
      I have had a very noisy tel line for about 8 months at first i thought it was our phones untill i bought another phone and tried that one which was the same. Then about 3 months ago we started having problems with our internet, (Broardband int using a belkin router) it took me a while to click that it could be a result of the line trouble.

      The noisy line seems to be an intermittent problem which is why i am unsure whether to get bt out as i can't afford 125 if they say they can't find anything wrong.
      I have tried running a phone strait out of the tester socket and i have still heard the noisy line albeit not as loud. Also my other worry is that about 7 years ago we had a loft convertion and the master socket and another little box was moved into the loft where it is now, not by me proberly the sparky.
      Anyway if anyone can help or ched any light as to what i can try i would be very much appreciative.
      Thanks

      It could be RF noise in which case a BT 80B RF3 would help. If the noise is present in the test socket then this is all you can try.

      Thanks for that,
      Where would this junction box be wired?,would it replace the little box that the main cable from outside connects to?
      Cheers

      Can you post a pic of what you refer to? Basically it goes in line with the NTE5, so you have :-

      BT Network>BT80B RF3>NTE5>Any Extension Wiring

      If you already have an INTERNAL junction box it can replace that.

      Hi
      OK i understand what you are saying, but this would be where i am not really aloud to touch, if i am right i am only aloud to touch anything after the NTE5.
      Cheers

      You are not allowed to fit an NTE5 (directly to BT wiring), plenty of people do.
