    Default Weird phone line problem...

    I am experiencing a very weird problem.

    Firstly, there is no problem with my adsl line...

    I used a Siemens CL-110 modem-router and no speed problems.

    When I changed it to a Thomson TG585 v8, problems started...
    Low speeds, unless I pick up the phone.....
    When I am speaking to the phone or just pick it up, speed comes back!

    Line voltages are:

    48 Volts when phone is resting

    -20 volts when ringing

    8,44 Volts when I pick up the phone or speaking.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    It sounds like you may have a bad or mis-wired DSL filter.
    Theory only works perfect in a vacuum.
