Been trying something. Think the in-line filter/splitter might be stuffed. If bypassed, phone can work and so far internet connection seems a lot better. Just can't have phone and internet together for now. Internet ftw!

Yeah, not a nice thing to have happen. I thought my problem was something much worse at first, as in my router was dying. Since it looks like I just need a new line splitter it's not such a big deal now.

Dang! Got a new line splitter. Things went fine for about a week. Go to use the phone this morning, no dial tone. Turn on the PC, internet connection dropping in/out. Take the new line splitter outta the loop and everything works. Idk how a brand new piece of gear with no moving parts can wig out so quickly. Oh well, back to the old phone/internet one at a time grind for now.

Sometimes going into your router admin section and resetting settings works + resetting router like a hard reset. Let me know if you need help with that m8.

LOL, I forgot all about this topic. I ended up calling the phone company and they sent a tech out to fix everything. There was some bad corrosion in my outlet which was causing all the drama.
