Re: Losing connection lately, and no caller ID??
You actually have two problems here, one can be solved (but it's hard) the other might not be able to be solved at all.
First the hard (cost wise) to solve problem: Caller ID What you can do is get a wireless phone that works in the 5 GHz range.
Now for the second problem which is why I suggested the solution to the second problem: Router cuts off phone and phone cuts off router.
This occurs because the router (wireless) and the phone wireless are using the same frequency spectrum 2.4 - 2.5 GHz. when the phone tries to communicate with the hand set the router sees this as an interference and ups its power slightly and this drops the phone call on the first ring which consequentially is the ring on which the data for caller id travels. once the phone senses the interference from the router it up is power slightly and then "steps on the router's transmission cutting off your wireless connection to your PC. So the phone and the computer are off line until one of them stops transmitting.

reset your router should be a reset button on the back, hold in till the lights on the front flash then its reset open explorer browser type in 10.1.1.1 log in as Administrator add new user set password while adding new user save your new settings(write them down too) test the internet for function
if no function then contact your ISP to assist with connection to internet
Your phone frequency must be the same with frequency of your wireless router. To avoid this you access the web GUI of your router page..http://192.168.1.1..( in most cases)...and go to the wireless settings...look for the frequency tab and change the settings ( you can try 1-10). DO trial and error...
I'm having the same problem that I was at first attributing it to my telephone problems. But then I realized I couldn't contact the modem either during this time. I had been unplugging it for 10 seconds or so and when I plug it back in, it's fine. It's sounding like a modem problem. It's happening intermittently right now... about every few hours or so. So I'm probably going to look for another modem. Not a Westell tho..I've been hearing bad things about them.
Well, glad I found someone with the same problem, the answer will certianly surprise you.
The answer is cordless phones and satellite interent.
if you have cordless phones and/or satellite internet it will lose signal.
They run on the same frequency.
To fix it log into your router, goto wireless settings, then check the box for enable channel settings. You may have to reboot the router and PC.
Good luck and have a happy new year.
