clicking noise whenever i talk on the phone

clicking noise whenever i talk on the phone

when I talk on the phone, there is a constant clicking noise (about every 3 secons).  I hear this noise whether i am on a wireless home phone, or on a corded home phone.  this noise just started today.  the people I am talking to also hear the clicking. i even hear the noise just on the dial tone, before I dial a number, so I know the problem is with my set up.  any ideas on how to get rid of the clicking?

Try hooking your corded phone directly to the modem rather than a wall jack.

I have a similar problem. It is not confined to my talking. I hear it during dialtone. It does not have a predictable clicking rate...at random times but typically less than 10 seconds and often less than 5 seconds between between them.

 

I disconnected the DHG modem and removed the battery. The battery seems pretty hot to the touch to me, but I had never checked it before so I have no reference. I let it cool, put it back in and reconnected it. After a few minutes I got dialtone again but the clicking remains. After I did the reconnect, I happened to be watching the DHG535 modem while listening to dialtone and noticed everytime I hear one of these clicks all but one of the LEDs on the DHG535 modem blinks. The one that doesn't blink is the one indicating power. All the others that are normally on (DS, US, Online, Tel1 and Battery) turn off long enough for me to notice (probably around 0.25 seconds).

 

Is this a problem with my modem? If so, what do I do about it?
