Re: Treadmill causing U-verse gateway to loose connection is simple to fix!

Did some trouble shooting last night and seemed to resolve the treadmill issue.
As mentioned above at first I tried putting my A/V equipment on a different circuit than the treadmill and this did not work. Both were hooked up to cheap power strips without noise filtering.
So last night I then tried:
First -- AV Equipment (Receiver, TV and Cable Box) and Treadmill on same power circuit with Treadmill hooked up to a Tripp Lite Super 8 (SK6-6) with > 60 EMI/RFI filtering. Cable froze when the treadmill turned on.
Second I put the all the AV equipment on the Trip Lite Super 8 with the Treadmill on the cheap power strip. All on the same power circuit. Still froze.
Third I put the AV Equipment on one Tripp Lite Super 8 and the Treadmill on another Super 8 (All on same power circuit) - Still froze.
Also my TV upstairs would freeze in these combinations as well.
Finally - Put the treadmill on its own circuit with a Tripp Lite Super 8, then put the AV Equipment on a different circuit with a Super 8 and this worked. My TV upstairs did not freeze either. It's not on a Tripp Lite. Just a cheap power strip.
Hope this helps. By the way the Tripp Lite's run $28.97 on Amazon.com
