Ian Posted June 29, 2019 Share Posted June 29, 2019 If the phone rings while I'm using the internet, the connection sometimes drops. If I answer the phone, it always drops.Research indicates it's a poor connection somewhere, causing a weak signal.My router is connected to a secondary socket, which I installed many years ago. If I were to connect my router to the master socket and establish a connection, I could test it by phoning in with, eg, a mobile. If the ADSL connection drops, it's outside the house - if the ADSL continues, it's my shoddy workmanship inside the house.The problem is, the master socket is an old "T" socket, and I've thrown out any matching cables. To save me buying one, is there another way to discover whether the fault is internal (after the master socket) or external (before the master socket)?Cheers Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
