No this is not a drawback of DSL. I have DSL and I know of 4 other people that have DSL and none of us have experienced anything like you have. The first thing I would do is disconnect the DSL modem and see if the trouble stays or disappears. If the trouble stays then it sounds like AT&T changed your cable pair when you ordered DSL. If the trouble disappears then it sounds like the DSL modem is the problem.
