Re: it wont connect
If you have reset the router for any reason, you must have the incorrect settings eg PPOA PPOE or you have not entered the correct password and username.
It is also possible that your broadband connection to your isp server is down.
On the other hand if you have installed this modem/router in place of a dial up modem or a broadband modem, your modem is still trying to connect, which needs to be dissabled as when you use a router you do not have to click connect unless you are in the routers settings as you are always on line, unlike a dial modem, so you should have uninstalled the modem driver.
If you have just installed the router you need to open up internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections and choose never dial a connection, unless its all greyed out, in whicj case you need to go back into the router and check the settings.

I'm not sure why you think you should be getting dial tone out of a wireless router? If you have bundled service thru your ISP and they are providing phone service then they will provide another device that plugs into your router and connects to your phone jack. This device provides the dial tone.
a POTs (plain old telephone) line should never be connected to a router. that adsl filter does not make a phone line share a data line.
ADSL is a type of internet service supplied over a phone line. think of it as raw (unusable) when its on the phone line. then you use your dsl filter/splitter to feed the raw internet into a special dsl modem and the other port can be used by a standard phone.
you will know a dsl modem when you see it because its uplink or internet port will only be big enough to fit a phone cord into, not an internet cord. these dsl modems then feed usable internet to your routers and all devices on your network. but, like i said before, at this point it is too late for your phone and internet to share the same wire.
OK, thats not entirely true
pin out of RJ45 internet
1,2,3+6 are used in a typical network
if your network is typical you can "get fancy" and use 4,5,7+8 for telephone or even put 2 data lines on the same wire (not recommended for long distances). however, this may involve cutting some wires and splicing them together or something.
try power cycle by removing the power of the router for one minute then plug it again.
check the cable if all of it tightly connected to the specified port
if it is a modem router it should have a 3 cable connected to it
Phone line, Ethernet cable and the power adapter.
the Ethernet cable should be connect to the back of your tower( computer).
check you phone for a dial tone.
check the light in the router like dsl , ethernet ,internet and activity.
all of these must have a light.
More likely your telephone junction box outside your house has a bad wire connection - I've experienced the same problem before for my DSL. In addition, sometimes my phone line would go out as well - no dial tone. Listen to your phone and check if you have a dial tone when the Internet connection drops out - they may be associated.
You are mixing concepts here. Router = Broadband and Dial tone = dial up.
It's one or the other NOT BOTH.
Forget about modems and dialtone completely because you are not using that system.. You are connecting via DHCP to your router, either by wireless or ethernet. Most computers will connect automatically.
because you are using a dial up connection instead of an open conection, open internet explorer, click tols, internet options, the clik connections tab, then tick the button, 'never dial a conection', click apply, close internet explorer, then open again and you ma need to refresh the page a few times
Make sure you unplug the power from the cable modem for atleast 30 seconds and reconnect it. make sure the ethernet cable is plugged to the router NOT the pc. What's happening is the cable modem is obtaining the Mac address of your pc, and once you change the cable to the router, the modem is still looking for the original address it obtained earlier.
Try this, assuming you're using Internet Explorer:
Go to Tools > Internet Options and select the Connections tab. Does it show your old dial-up connection in the list? If so highlight it and click on REMOVE.
Close IE and re-open it. It should now use the Belkin LAN connection.
