      Phone Charger!!

      I have my router plugged in to my master socket with an adsl filterplate, and my cordless phone main base unit upstairs plugged into the last phone extension, yesterday i was moving things around in the main bedroom, where this phone base is, i noticed that the charger was making a sort of crackling noise, thinking the charger was faulty i turned this off, as soon as i did my noise margin went up by approx. 0.5dB, i turned charger back on and again my N.M, decreased by 0.5dB, could this have an effect on my bband connection?, or is it just pure coincidence!!

      It is known that faulty electrical equipment can interfere with a broadband connection.

      It is more likely that the interference from the charger is interfering with the electrical supply to the router, which in turn is affecting your connection.
