In a SMB with four incoming lines, two operate off of the ATA side of
the 2102 (never drops calls). The cable modem is plugged into the WAN
side of the 2102. The Polycom phone into the LAN side (two lines aare
assigned). A cable runs from phone to a wireless router. The phone
regularly drops calls. Suggestions?

Please add a comment with your router model number and the type of network service that you have.
Most routers need to be connected to a modem that connects to the outside line. (Depending on your service, this could be a DSL or cable modem or a unit that connects to a phone.)
For a wired incoming network: You connect your RJ-11 (phone cable) to the appropriate-sized port on the modem. Then connect a RJ-45 cable between the modem and your router. Then connect any wired devices via additional RJ-45 cables (many routers include a four port switch). A few have a USB connection option for one computer; most with USB ports have the other type of USB connection for sharing a hard drive or printer. Use one wired connection to set up the router, including your encryption and password to secure your wireless network. (For some ISPs, you'll need to do some extra setup, including programming your username and password. This is usually not needed for DHCP connections, where the IP address is dynamically generated.) Finally, use the encryption protocol and password to set up the wireless network on your wireless devices. (Under Windows, go to the Windows Network control panel and choose Add New Network. For other wireless devices, you'll need to find a similar setting.)
There are a few modem/router combination units. However, those are less common. They will have both the RJ-11 and RJ-45 ports. This is for wired networks. For the devices that let you share your cell phone's network, you will probably see a USB port of some type on the unit.
To reset your SPA device to the factory default values, follow the steps below:
1. Disconnect the Ethernet cable 2. Access the voice menu (****) and press 73738#. 3. Login with the username "user" when accessing to http://spa-ip-address OR login with "admin" when accessing http://spa-ip-address/admin/.
NOTE: Resetting your unit will erase all the configuration settings. If your SPA device was provisioned by a service provider, the reset function might be password protected. Contact your service provider.
your SPA2102-R seems to have one ethernet connection and one internet connection.
your WRT54G-TM seems to have one internet connection and 4 ethernet connections.
What you are trying to achive is; plug a ethernet cable into the ethernet connection on your SPA2102-R then plug the other end into the internet port of the WRT54G-TM
hope this helps, I have assumed that you intend to use a DSL broadband supplier not ADSL.
if you are changing service from DSL to ADSL then your WRT54G-TM needs to be first in line configured and working. then plug the internet port from the SPA2102-R into any of the WRT54G-TM ethernet ports.
The 2Wire 2700 is a residential gateway, a modem and router in-one. There is an RJ-11 jack in the back of the gateway and this is where your dsl phone cord plugs in. There are four RJ-45 jacks in the back for connecting devices using ethernet cable. As a router is can operate both wirelessly and wired. For wireless operation you'll need the WEP key which is located on the tag on the bottom of the gateway. It's the number enclosed in brackets, between the two bar codes.
You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).
If you are connected to Router and pulled up that Data, you might just need a power cycle. Turn off everything from PC to router - to Modem and Power on everything starting off with the modem this time. After power cycle, check if getting the same data. If yes, then type "ping yahoo.com" if you have four replies then you must be able to go online, if not then disable firewall (norton, maccafee etc)
