Hi, this is my first post on here.
I have had problems with my telephone line; when my modem (BT Voyager
205 ADSL Router) is plugged into the phone socket, there there is a
hissing noise on the phone line. Then, when you plug in computer to the
filter as well, just static on phone; no dialing tone. Incoming callers
go straight to BT answer 1571.
BT engineer has dicovered that the fault is a 'redirected loop',. He
says that the phones on their own work fine; so does broadband alone.
He reckons that the fault is in the computer (Apple eMac) & also the
modem. Modem can easily be replaced. Any ideas what I can do to resolve
this on my computer.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
