ADSL up, phones don't work!

It was all so easy. The modem was delivered by the mailman at 8:15 a.m. and everything was connected and working (including Airport wireless) by 9:00 a.m. Then I tried to make a phone call and there was no dial tone even though the ADSL line was happily downloading software. We've been having problems with the phones for some time and have to put it down to the complications of installing the fiber optic cable to the local exchange. So if you're trying to call us, e-mail us! UPDATE: By trial and error I discovered that one of the ADSL filters may be the problem. So we have both phone and internet at last, but only on one phone. Sigh!
