Having a phone line problem...

Hey guys. I really hope you can help me out.

You see, I'm having a very serious problem with my phones in my house. I have two lines, one for phone use and the other for dedicated dial-up. You see what happens is when someone else picks up the other phone on the other line to dial a number, my other line either disconnectes from the net or lags HORRIBLY for about 2-3 minutes.

My question is: Is there anything I can buy, or anything I can do to stop this problem? I'm thinking it might have something to do with the line wiring that was installed, but I'm not completely sure. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give.

If you have inside wiring coverage from your phone company, complain, & have them come wire you a dedicated jack straight from the NID (the box on the side of your house). You could try and re-wire it yourself but the phone company doesn't like customers opening up the NID.
