Hi everyone,

I am having problem with my DSL internet connection for a while now. My DSL line seems to disconnect some days and doesn't seem to be able to hold the connection.  I noticed a pattern. On a good sunny day where the roof of my house heats up I have a lot of disconnects. On a rainy cold day my Internet works just fine and I have no disconnects at all. All winter I had no problems. Spring hits, it is getting warmer and sunnier and my connection keeps dropping. Is it possible that the wire in my phone line somewhere in the house can't take the heat. Has anybody had this experience before?

I had exactly the same issue when we moved in to our house 5 years ago. I decided to install a master splitter before spending a lot of time trouble shooting, and the fixed the issue immediately, while doubling my connection speed.

Do you have any joins in the cable in your roof?
My parents house had a similar situation the cause of it was an old dried out & badly joined scotchlok, The fix was installing a Splitter in the ETP and running new CAT5e.

So far I haven't found anything, but I have still a lot of ground to cover. The insulation makes my life difficult.
