First some info: Modem (DSL-302G) on Orcon's NL/NL 15gb plan with a splitter installed. 3 other phones in the house with working filters on all of them (I checked that the filters were fine).
Yesterday morning, my phone rang and my broadband connection proceeded to drop out immediately (this happened sometimes before as well), and then would not reconnect (this was new). I restarted the modem and still nothing. I proceeded to pick up the phone receiver and bam... modem reconnects. Hang up the phone... internet drops out and cannot reconnect. I went around the house and unplugged all phone jacks, swapped around filters and no faults were found in any of the usual areas affecting broadband. I'm no expert, but that one got me stumped. I rang Orcon and quickly found out I am not the only one thats stumped either. They generally had no clue why something like that would happen.
So basically after talking with them, its down to 2 possibilities: 1) There is a modem fault of some sort, or 2) Wiring got screwed up somewhere. I think its the latter, as the modem seemed to work fine. Anywho, before I check these possibilities, I was wondering if anybody had any bright ideas or maybe solutions to the problem. Mind you the wiring in the house is pretty bad, but I never had any problems with it prior to yesterday.
I just hope there is some very simple solution to this, because I really can't be bothered going around picking up modems and testing stuff, then waiting for the tech person to come around until I get my net back. Any input is much appreciated.
