I am getting blamed for Computer problems here, I have a land line dial up connection, in the garage workshop, but in the house there are 2 PC's that use DSL, wireless, connection, . .
today I was out and was told when I returned they were having problems with connecting to the internet, I thought I disconnected my ISP, before I left, whether or not I am told when they turned my PC off, they were able to access the internet immediately, . . .

anyone know anything about this, . . am I to blame ??

If you have DSL you might need a filter on the phone line in your workshop.

Most DSL carriers also give you access to a dial-up account in case you are away from home and need to access your email or something. Are you using that account or you have your own separate dial-up account that has nothing to do with your DSL? I ask that because if its the DSL account's dial-up, they may only give you one account log in and if you are using it the DSL can't log in.

Its probably the filter tho.

The DSL service is something I never use, only those in the house use it, but as stated it

appears that since there is only one dial-up line for the home, and I am using it, there somehow is

a use connection that involves the DSL, . . I have a filter on the line, is there a chance it could be

bad or the wrong one ?

Did you get a DSL "kit" and use those filters? As long as you installed them correctly then its cool. Altho they do go bad sometimes.

You didn't really answer my question about the dial-up. Who is your dial-up ISP? Is it the same as your DSL?

Sorry about that question I guess I missed it, but thanks for your help, . .

No, my ISP is someone totally different.

the filter is a 2 wire dsl filter for two line phones, although I don't know what a two line phone is ?

Is this your filter? looking at that picture, the phone cord from your PC should be plugged into the Phone socket.

And is it your PC is just on or you are online that is the issue? Because you said you didn't remember if you signed off or not but when they shut your PC down it worked.

Yes that is what I have my line from the computer connected to as it is then connected to a connector box which is attached to the lead line that goes to the outside box, . . .

she said I was on line and that she noticed that I had quite a few tabs listed on my browser, I was on line tonight and she had no problems but my browser was not on line.
