I just bought a magic jack. i accidentally unplugged it
And after that it doesn't want to work properly. the dialer doesn't want to launch anymore. I was trying to uninstall but i couldn't figure out how as it doesn't have an uninstall option. and i couldn't find it on the device manager.
Re: i just bought a magic jack. i accidentally unplugged...
Plug in the magic jack again. wait a minute or two, then go to "my computer" and see if the magic jack appears on one of the drives. Mine shows up on drive E. Double click on the drive yours appears on and it should restart. Other than than try to restart the computer or plug it into another usb slot.

Try this: Unplug EVERYTHING(related to both the router and modem). BEFORE you plug in power to anything, connect all of your ethernet. So, first ethernet goes from modem to router. Make sure they are in their proper places. Next, take another ethernet cable and attach that from modem to computer. NOW, power everything up. Google the linksys router splash page login. Im sure it'll be something like: 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or something along those lines. From there, you should be able to set up your wireless. Once thats all good, unplug just your computer and everything should be fine. If that doesn't work, its either time for a new router or you're having wifi card issues.
The first thing you should do is a proper 'powercycle' for all of your internet equipment.
To do this:
1) Unplug the power to your modem and your router, and power off your computer. 2) Wait a full minute. 3) Plug the power back in to JUST the modem. 4) Wait some more - for the modem to fully connect to your ISP, and the lights to indicate. If you're not sure, just wait about 2-3 minutes. 5) Plug the power back into the router. 6) Wait another minute or two for the router to finish connecting. 7) Then turn the computer back on.
You can bypass the computer turning on and off if you can repair your wireless connection.
If this doesn't work, there is a pinhole sized reset button on the router itself that you will need a toothpick or somesuch to press - press and hold the button for 5 seconds, and then try the steps above again. If you do this, the network id and password will be reset to the default, just like it was when you bought it.
hi Dan, your IP is either there or not.. so static doesn't matter. in most cases magicjack requires at least 2 gigs of memory (they claim much less) and the system can't be in heavy use during calls. most of us setup independant laptops as our magic jack phone systems. if you aren't dedicating a system to this function then the user usage will impact the call. check your system resources as it is the most likley to cause your calls to sound bad.
In the router setup, have you tried to disable "turbo G" option and click on "channel auto select" option? If your hypothesis of interference is correct, this may allow the router to choose a channel with less interference.
Hope it helps!
It could be the router which is giving you issue. Press and hold the reset button for 30 second and this makes the configuration to go back to its previous settings. The reconfigure the router with a new SSID and security key. Try connecting to the wireless network, the computers will consider it as a new network and will connect without any issues
