What type of phone?
Do you have a filter installed?

Couple of questions/suggestions:

1. is the phone plugged into a separate physical jackpoint from the adsl modem?
2. have you tried another telephone?
3. I had some weird things happen when I put a double adaptor for the phone that stops the other phone from being picked up. Lost caller id.

Any of these help?

Yip got a filter on the hpone, and its located from another jackpoint either than the modem with no double adapters, tried other phones with same disconnection problem :/

What sort of filter have you got.It may be faulty.To be honest,I would ditch those inline filters and get one of the proper ones that Telecom uses.I work for Telecom fixing ADSL faults,and I have replaced plenty of those inline ones with the proper ones and they always work better and have far less problems with it wired up properly.Not sure where to get them though,sorry.
