Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
For the past one week, the blue light on my router has stopped functioning. It does not come on and therefore the home phone service does not work.
You can also type 192.168.0.1 into the internet URL address bar and it'll ask you for a username and password. If you haven't set one up, try 'admin' and 'password'. Then look for a menu listing like 'Diagnostics' or something. (The layout varies on different Router brands) Now click 'Reboot Router' and wait until it has completely finished and all the lights have stopped flashing and are remaining on.
Now try your Home phone.
If it still doesn't work, try replacing the microfilter thingy that separates the computer cable and the phone cable (Usually a spare is bundled with the router when you buy or receive one, look in the box that the router came in, if you still have it). Otherwise contact your internet service provider and get them to check the line, as sometimes the signal 'drops' for certain reasons..

Setup should look like...
Wall > ISP Modem/Router
> Wireless router(if any) > Wired/wireless
If using DSL, a DSL Filter
MUST be on ALL devices, phone, answering machine, faxes, etc..., everything
EXCEPT the DSL Modem/Router.
You may share a DSL
Wall > DSL Filter >
Splitter > Multiple Devices
