Yes, DSL allow their customers to use their existing phone line for voice or fax. DSL modems are designed like a normal telephone, you just use router, hub, switch, you will need to disconnect and get help from good a service provider. Internet connections are available through cable connection lines. Verizon FIOS Promotion Code Save up to 50

A cable-modem connects with a coax-cable to the cable-company's network, but a DSL-modem connects with telephone-cable to the telephone-company's network.

Contact your Internet service provider to verify your modem allows more than one device to access the Internet if you receive error 3002 when trying to use MagicJack Plus. Some modems and modem/routers-in-one may not be compatible for use with MagicJack Plus if multiple devices are connected to your network.

I have an at&t 2wire 2701hg-b but i dont have at&t internet i have charter and i am not able to figure out how to get my internet to work with this router please help

att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet .
These two jacks differs and there working differs ..
Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication .
Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.

If i buy a dell inspiron 580 that does not have a modem, can i still plug it into the dsl router and get internet okay?

Yes, you do not need a modem. You connect a LAN cable from the computer to the DSL modem to access your Internet Service Provider.

I recently moved from Cable ISP to DSL ISP service. For the DSL service, I was asked to configure my Router to use PPPoE with Dynamic IP addressing. I also provided the router with my username and password...

The reason you have no internet is because the router is specifically for cable. your description contains errors what i think you mean is that you have gone from cable dsl to an adsl, correct me if i am wrong. Basically your modem connected to your router via an ethernet cable and then the router fed the wireless signal to your wireless devices or via ethernet through the 4 ports in the back. With adsl you have a feed from your phone line to an adsl modem so the only way for you to get the dsl router working is to have two ethernet leads connecting to your pc, one from the modem to the pc and one from the pc to the router. You would also need to setup internet sharing on the pc thats connected to both devices.

Either do it that way or buy an adsl router

Followed all the set up steps but my DSL light would not stay on

  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.

    Yes. D-LINK would be *STUPID* to try to market a router that is *NOT* compatible with *ALL* cable-modem (or DSL-modem) units.

    Can the microsoft MN700 Router be used with cable internet instead of DSL from the phone company?I switched from Verizon DSL to Comcast Cable internet but can not find an answer if the MN700 is compatible...

    I would say yes but i have not tested it personaly, but what i know about routers it should work with. Cable internet and dsl are exactly the same thing. The only difference is how its delivered to your house and the speed of it.

    DSL tands for "Digital Subscriber Line." It is medium for transferring data over regular phone lines and can be used to connect to the Internet

    cable the same thing except it is internet though the cable line. you u run the out of your

    you probably wont even have to change any settings on it either. the line out of the back of your cable modem will plug into the same spot the old cable ran to when you just had dsl.

    if this has been helpful please mark it has fixya. also please rate me, and if you have found it very helpful or informative please recommend me.

    Is your modem a DSL or cable modem?
    If it is a DSL modem do you have a DSL filter on each phone line to the phones in your house?

    A friend gave me old 2Wire 1701HG wireless modem/router. It didn't come with power cord, cables etc. I found a 4.5V cord from old walkman that worked. Anyway, have ATT DSL service with speedstream 4100...

    That would seem to be AT&T's favorite house brand...
    Me thinks the SpeedStream was their SLOWEST

    "2wire" was their next iteration of SLOW "DSL"

    Yes... You will need to contact THEM ... or whom-so-ever is your INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER (ISP)...

    As I recall... the PRICE DIFFERENCE from one
    service to the other was about $10 per month.

    Give them your pirated modem number and they
    will need to register it as a digital subscriber
    in order for you to gain internet access.
