Same problem at home for me, I have 3 iDect phones (bought about 2 months ago). When the phone is picked up from the main base station it kills my BB, the sync drops.... I keep meaning to hunt around for a filter that will stop this but hey ho, haven't got around to it..

Is base station plugged into bb filter have you tried putting it on one off the extensions.BT recently where telling me about interference from electrical devices like power supplies, florescent tubes and free view boxes knocking out broadband up to 150mtrs away.
I am writting this on my tablet pc using bluetooth to my mobile to provide internet as we have a bl**dy power cut.

does it kill the wifi, or drop the ADSL to the exchange?
Try calling up BT and asking for a line gain boost. My phone is really hissy/crackly with the ADSL running, and I've tried 4 different ADSL filters. If the line power is low, possibly it can't cope too well.
it should be a free upgrade..they've never charged me for it.

It drops the adsl to the exchange - wifi isn't being used.

I put two filters in tandem on the phone and it now works! Picked this tip up off thinkbroadband.com
I've also ordered some high quality filters from ADSL Nation - XF-1e - Professional Microfilter - rather impressed with this company as I ordered them yesterday lunchtime and they arrived today (Saturday) and postage was only £1.50 + vat!
I'm going to test them today and see if they do make a difference.
