Cordless phone doesnt disconnect?

Hi, I have been having a problem with my cordless phone. I have ADSL internet and ever since I got it about 2 years ago I occasionally have a problem with my phone. It seems almost as if it is not ending the call when I press end?? So I will have a phone conversation with someone and when that call is over I press end and it is like I just left it off the hook. The phone does not appear to be "off the hook" and it is off, but if you press the talk button a few minutes later it will be making that horrible off the hook noise. This phone I have now had for a year and I did have the same problem with my old phone as well. Also I have moved in the last year so I am sure that it is not the house wiring. I have to unplug my phone to get it to work again. Does anyone have a solution to this or an idea as to what could be causing it??? any help would be appreciated. thanks.

Just had a similar issue with my in-laws phone. I had changed the adsl microfilter at that jack and it cleared up the problem but not for long. they ended up buying a new phone. does the trouble persist if you unplug your dsl modem?

One thing you could check immediately is the filter, they do go faulty sometimes, just swop it with another one that you know is a good one.

When my home phone rings my internet disconnects

You need to make sure that you have an ADSL line filter connected before any home telephone or DECT base station (eg. a filter is required on the line between your physical telephone device and phone socket). This can also be achieved via a central ADSL phone line splitter.

---------- ADSL Filter -----> Telephone Handset 1 or DECT base station
<--- main telephone line --/
\-----------------------------------> ADSL Modem/Router ---> Computer
\----------ADSL Filter -----> Telephone Handset 2

Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

There is a buzzing sound on my end of the phone line, my computer is on DSL and sometimes it disconnects when the phone rings. I've checked the cords and the phone has a new battery.

You have interference due to the DSL overlapping your phone line its usually very common, make sure you have a DSL filter inline with your phone line , if not I would check out the RJ-45 jack in the wall, your phone jack and make sure that there isnt anything wrong with your Jack, you may have to call your phone company and have the phone tech's check out your wall Jack for any interference, they have special phone line meters to measure all this out.

Good luck,

When the phone rings and I answer it, and I'm on

Hi, the problem is unlikely to be related to your wireless router and more likely your internet modem.
If sounds like you are most likely on a DSL internet connection.
If you have a DSL modem, you need to have a filter on your phones in the house to prevent internet disconnecting. Usually you get one with your adsl modem, but if you need more or if you did not get one you can purchase them from any computer store and possibly an electronics or even supermarket. They are very cheap.

No tone. When attempting to dial, phone just clicks. DSL internet working fine.

Have you installed the ADSL microfilters wich come with your modem? They are little boxes and should look like this
Plug one side to your phone line, the other side to your phone.

If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.

Ring your ISP to get them to test your connection to your ADSL

I cannot get an internet signal while connected through my router

if the ADSL led is on (=adsl signal found ok) then
most likely you got the username / password wrong.
this is 90% the cause of a "no - internet connection"
the easyest way to solve it is to call your internet providers helpdesk as they can see in their computers the satus of your connection (and many other technical details) and will guide you to solve this.

now if the ADSL led is off (=adsl signal not detected on phone line) then check the cables / connections from your wall telephone socket to the adsl filter and to your router.
also check if you forgot to put a filter in every phone (or fax etc) you might have in your home. also check if you have a faulty telephone set somewhere in your house (better disconnect them to be sure). if all ok then, call your providers help-desk.

2wire gateway signal range problems

1. Put the router in the highest location possible in the house.
2. Make sure the gateway is installed in the center of the house rather than in a corner of house, so it will cover area on all sides.
3. Make Sure you dont have any devices that may interfere with the signal eg. cordless phone , close to the gateway.
4. Use channel 3 or 7.

This is possibly caused by the internet connection.
Try new ADSL filter.
You need one each per device.

GE cordless phones

If the cordless phones are old 2.4GhZ phones, and you have wireless internet (which is probably also 2.4GhZ), the wi-fi could be messing with the phone signal/channel. Some cordless phones have a switch that allows you to switch channels. If so on your phone, try that.

This was happening to me, along with my internet connection dropping off every time the phone rang. So I went out and got a set of Dect 6.0 cordless phones, and the problem went away.

Good luck.
