Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Internet connection dies when phone rings

I don't lose the network, just internet. I have wireless 5.8ghz phones. My ISP is ATT and I have their DSL modem with the filters on all the phone devices. My wireless router is Netgear WGR614v8 and I just upgraded the firmware. Normally, I'm very pleased with my service and the wireless network, but it is getting so I dread hearing the phone ring when I'm trying to work. Router and modem have to be rebooted every time!

    Thanks Michael. I'll try these steps and and get back with the results.

    I went through the steps suggested and didn't get much change, although I was able to resolve the problem for the most part by unhooking one suspect phone.



    I then did an upgrade of the drivers for the Westell DSL router and that resolved the issue completely. Now even if I lose the connection briefly when the suspect phone rings it comes back within a few seconds.

    I would talk to AT&T and tell them of the problem. You've got everything setup right with the filters if they are all installed.

There are a number of tests you can perform to find the problem unhook all the phones in your house and then call to see if it still does it. If it doesnt it may be one of your phones. If it does check the wiring in the jacks and make sure the wires are not backwards in any of them. If they all appear to be fine there maybe a problem at the pole or box whichever the company has installed in your neighborhood. Once you have determined that none of the above is present its not your fault and the providing internet company should not charge you to come out and check the outside lines. It can be as simple as a little short in the wire especially if its underground.

You may also wanna locate the phone box on the outside of your home and see if it disconnects when connected to there.

The box Outside Should Look Like This

And You'll Need To Disconnect All Of The Lines From These Plugs And Then Plug Your Internet Directly Into One Of Them. This Will Disconnect All The Phone Lines In The House. Now Place A Call To Your Home Via Cell Phone Or Have A Friend Call And If It Doesn't Disconnect Your Internet The Problem Is In The House.
If It Still Does Its The Phone Company's Problem And You'll Need To Call Them To Fix The Problem.

2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.

I went from a ATT dsl modem to a net gear modem and i cannot get the net ger mode and linksys mode to talk to the computer


Most DSL providers use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections for end-users. To set up a Linksys router, you need to enable PPPoE on the router’s web-based setup page.
To setup a Linksys router with a DSL connection you need to perform four steps:
  1. Verifying Internet Connection
  2. Connecting the Devices Together
  3. Checking the LEDs
  4. Setting-up a DSL ISP on a Linksys Router
Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If not, contact your Internet Service Provider.
