So I switched from AT&T DSL to Comcast yesterday and ever since then my connection just dies on me every time the phone rings and is in use. When hung up and not in use my DSL reconnects and has no problems. It also can't find the home network I connect to when it disconnected until the phone is not in use. I use wireless USB for internet on my desktop that connects through the DSL modem on my parent's computer. I'm shocked because this isn't supposed to happen with DSL and it's never happened before. any idea why this happens?

Well, the main problem is Comcast internet is the worst POS to be invented. I had a client with comcast, and they were at the end of the chain of connections, which means that instead of the promised 3 Megabits per second, they were running far below 1 Megabit per second. They had to wait almost a year before they got connected to a new circuit. I would look into DSL filters, which would help any reception problems with your phone line, but I would go with a cable line. Usually they are faster and more reliable.
