The home phone service has not worked for one week.

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.

Hi,
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..
Good Luck!

Why does my DIR628 suddenly stop functioning and cyling off and on?


Recycle the router by unplugging it and plugging it back in. One thing to always remember is that if the modem and the router gets turned off, then when they come back on the modem needs to power up first, then power up the router. If that sequence does not happen you will drop connections.

No internet


Have you tried testing by bypassing your router and connecting your computer directly? If you were not able to connect, then your internet service provider should be contacted.

APPLE I POD TOUCH


Hi Rob

The IP address that the iPod is showing is a "self-assigned" address meaning that it has looked around for something to give it an IP (i.e. a DHCP server) but not found anything. There could be lots of reasons for this. First, on your wireless router, is it set to broadcast its SSID? If not, the iPod can't see it. Second, is the router set to act as a DHCP server so that computers etc can be assigned an IP address and the network info needed? Third, does your router have a setting to only allow connections from specific devices, normally identified by their MAC address? If so, you'll have to check the MAC address of your iPod and add that into the list. Finally, do you have security settings such as WEP or WPA encryption on the router that you need to enter the details of into your iPod?

Not working ,just red light


If you have all red lights, this indicates a problem with the router. Please contact your ISP to make sure that your internet connection is working correctly. Did you receive this router from your ISP or did you purchase it directly? Has it worked in the past and just suddenly stopped working? Please provide more details for me to provide you with further options.
