Just connected router to clear network modem and VoIP (wireless phone service), now when the phone ring, it disconnects me from the internet and the connection is lost until the phone call is complete.

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?
The DSL modem does not need a DSL filter on the phone line.

I can't hook my computer up to my phone line for internet. I have my router and another desktop hooked up to the phone line through the router.

That modem is in itself a router. However it only has one Ethernet port and no means of broadcasting a wireless Internet Signal which makes its function of a Router somewhat useless. What you need a(n) (wireless) access point. The Access Point will give you more Ethernet slots allowing more computers to be connected to the modem/router via CAT5 (Ethernet) cables. Depending on if you get a Wireless access point or not you might also be capable of using a wireless adapter to connect to the 2wire and get Internet access.

Let me know if I need to clarify any of the points above or if I can assist you further.

run the telephone line from your modem into the wall jack. From the modem connect a network cable (cat5) into the back ( via the uplink port) of your linksys router . Your router can now route the IP from the modem.

How to change Linksys wireless router?

When you get cable internet, the cable company provides you with a modem (usually). From the cable modem you can hook up the Linksys router with an ethernet cable and it will work just fine. Hook the router up to the desktop or laptop with another ethernet cable if you need to make changes to the router security or whatever. The router address is generally YOu can type that address right into the internet address and you router page shoud show up. If you have been using the Linksys router with the phone line all you need is to connect it to the cable modem to work. An ethernet cable is like a telephone line with a fatter connecter.

D Link wireless problem hooking up to 2 pcs

I assume you have an internet connection based on a phone line or cable with a modem attached to your router to your desktop -- when no computer can access the internet. When your desktop attaches directly to the modem without the router it works.

The following are the high probability errors there are many more.

This is indicative that the router may not configured correctly on the WAN side to connect to the ISP's modem. The requirements for this are generally capable of being retrieved from your ISP's website. Another possibility is that the DNS addresses wre not loaded into the routers lan side config or DHCP services may be disabled.

The same problems can be blocking wireless access although there can be others, too.

If you can provide your ISP's name or even better their a link to their support site in a comment that could start the process by which I can find those requirements for you. If you are not confortable configuring a router then I will also need confirmation of the model number of the D-Link Router, so I can assure we have the same version of the manual to reference configuration steps for you to execute.

I am going to give you a couple of other things to try, I'm not sure of they will work but if they do we will be closer to an answer.

Do these things when the desktop is hooked to the modem and when it is hooked to the router and from the laptop after you have attempted to connect to the router.

Open a command or dos prompt window

Start then All Programs then Accessories the Dos/Command Prompt

A new window will open in that window type the following command and press enter --

ipconfig /all

Copy down the following information if the command works
IP Address -- probably 192.168.0.? if attached to the router
Subnet Mask --- probably if attached to the router
Default Gateway -- probably 192.168.0.? if attached to the router
DNS Address(es) -- may be one or more

After than for each default gateway enter the following command replacing {default gateway} with the default gateways from the returned by the ipconfig command above (ignore addresses) and press enter

ping (default gateway}

This command will respond 4 times either with a timeout or a line if data with elapsed time in ms (milliseconds). If it timesout all 4 times it fails, if it gets elapsed times all 4 times it worked, if it gets a mixture we may have a flaky cable or something but it is working but not well.

Now the important information is as follows

The DNS address from when the desktop was hooked to the modem should match the DNS addresses for both computers when connected to the router. I expect the desktop to successfully connect to the router on one adapter (in case there is more than one) For that adapter where the ping works
the subnet mask and the default gateway should match the ones received from the wireless adapter on the laptop. The beginning of the IP address for both the desktop and laptop should match the gateway address normally for the first three of the four numbers (only when the subnet mask is

Please respond to this message with a comment indicating what you could do and what you found out so I can provide some next steps to complete this process. If you do not understand the address matching above send me the outputs of the ipconfig commands and tell me which gateway pings worked and I will make the judgements.

OK well I think it is better to set it up like this... Connect the Modem to the Phone Line, Connect the Modem to the Router with an Ethernet Cable, Use a CABLE connection from the Main PC to the Router. (Ya gonna ditch the USB WiFi) Set that Main PC connection up to connect to the internet from the Main PC, thru Router thru Modem.... Then from Slave, install the USB adapter in this PC, and use this to connect DIRECTLY to the WiFi Router... and thus to the internet. This way will give the best transfer rates, and reliability
