Sounds like you're missing a filter, or have a dud filter connected to your phone socket.
The filter is either an inline connector/adapter thingy, or a device built into the phone socket. Its purpose is to prevent the ADSL and phone signals from interfering with each other and what you're suffering is precisely that kind of interference.
You will normally require a filter (or wall socket with built-in filtering) for _each_ phone on the same line -- it only needs one unfiltered phone or fax for problems to appear.

You should have gotten at least two or three when you signed up for your DSL service. Usually they look like small, rectangular devices about the size and shape of your thumb, with connectors to fit a phone line.
