Internet connection issues....

So I use a phone line connection for internet and Xbox LIVE. Everything is fine, minimal lag, but whenever I get a phone call it logs me off of Xbox LIVE. It's really fvcking annoying, and since I'm still under my parents' roof, I can't get a new internet package.

Is there any way to remove this issue of disconnecting due to phone calls? Or am I just screwed?

Phone line? You mean like dial-up?

If so, you can add a string to your modem to disable Call Waiting for that session. Been a while but I think the code is either *70, 70# or one other one, I forget, depending upon where you live.

Have you turned off call waiting via *70? If not, you should make sure that your dial-up settings for dialing into your ISP includes that prior to the phone number.

No, we use DSL. We don't use a modem.

Do you have the filters installed on the line? DSL should operate alongside the telephone, not in exclusion to.

Then you need to have the phone company take a look at your lines and ensure that everything is connected properly as that should not happen. I have been running a DSL connection for 11 years without any problems like that.

Get the filters installed on your phone lines then. They need to be on every jack that has a phone plugged into them.

Call your ISP and tell them you need line filters. They shouldn't charge you, should have given them to you in the first place, and they look (something) like this:

You need to put filters on your phone. (Phones will gladly go out of their spectrum and invade your DSL w/o the filter)
