Im sorry but i had to create a new post coz nobody was looking at the reply i mentioned in an older post. since the prob was somewhat same i didnt want to start a new topic all together. but since no one was reading older posts, i created a new topic :I solved my earlier problem and the net doesnt randomly disconnect anymore. But now im getting a different type of disconnection. Whenever i pickup any one of my telephones to make or receive a call, my connection is showing still connected but there is no data transmission and all pages appear as page cannot be displayed. Even after i put the phone down there is no data transmission. I have to manually disconnect and reconnect again. At first my telephone line was splitted at three places, 1st a phone, 2nd the router and 3rd another phone. So all three devices were in parallel. Then i connected the router as the 1st split in the line. So now its router-phone1-phone2.This improved my SNR and reduced the line attenuation but the original problem still persists. Im using the bridged mode to connect to the net ie.bridge mode in the router settings and a windows pppoe dialer. Does anyone else observe this kind of disconnection when lifting the handset of the lan telephone with a same kind of splitting in the telephone line? If yes, how to solve it???
