cheers aredwood, both corded and cordless do ring once, it is happening now and it is 1 degree outside even at 9.30 ( lucky me), dsl stats are all good so I guess the cables may be too close and been interfered with. Anyway its happened since the home was built in the late 90's, so the riple control would seem highly likely.

johny99: dsl stats are all good

Move to VoIP? (Unless you are on one of those rural voice boxes and DSL1)

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

It's odd that you are getting one ring without an incoming call being cutoff. You do get transients but most phones are designed to ignore them as part of the dial pulse rejection in the ringer. Is there any regular pattern apart from temperature?
