My phone line has not been working at all, tried different phones and everything. Is it possible that pop spilled on the modem could do this? its actually a problem that was fixed this morning by the phone company....the internet was working and only the phone was down, but the tech claimed the dsl modem was bad and thats why the phone didn't work.... is that even possible?

Re: Is it possible..
1) Is your phone bill paid? 2) Have you installed filters on the phone line and data line? 3) as you said, check for anything sticky on the speedstream itself, something might have been spilled, or even water for that matter.

sounds like you may not have filters correctly installed. You should have signal filters which will seperate the Internet signal from the standard phone signal. There should be one which looks like a cable splitter with a symbol for phone and modem... make sure these are connected the correct way. If you also have any other phones or fax machines connected, they should have a filter at the socket....
This may actually be an issue with your ISP. There is a good possiblity that your ISP has bound your connection to the MAC address of the network card on your computer. This is a common occurance which is why router manufacturers give you the option of having your router clone your computer's MAC address. Go into your router's management an perform the clone, sorry I cannot give you more details but I don't know the specific model of your Belkin router.
The DSL light blinking or going out indicates that the DSL modem is loosing sync. This is usually caused by noise on the line. When you get the DSL service you should be given filters to put on all of your phones so that the phones will not interfere with the DSL signal. Those filters need to be attached to anything connected to the phone line that has the DSL on it except for the DSL modem. Other than that the problem could be on the service providers end, something outside your home, or the DSL modem going out. I would suggest that you verify everything is filtered, then contact your service provider so they can run test on your DSL line.
http://192.168.254.254/brgmode.html ...or if they have the gay firmware >.> go to http://speedstream/brgmode.html then click apply....now set your router to log in with your user information with a PPOE login...if your like me and using the dlg-4500 just go to setup and do internet wizard to set up easily...then your ready to go... it can take up to 10 minutes for your router to configure so give it time..and if it doesn't seem like it's working in that time...try cycling your power then check again...and if still not working, do a hard reset (hold reset till lights alternat from green to red) to reset to factor default (do it for your router too becfause it will still be set to sign into your isp for you)
If all of the lights go out or the DSL light stars blinking with no other light on then that usually indicates the modem lost sync. That is usually caused by noise on the DSL line. If the DSL line and phone line are on the same cables then you should have filters that need to be installed on every device connected to the phone lines except for the DSL modem. If that has already been done then you would need to contact you service provider as the issue is most likely going to be a problem with the phone lines in your house or their lines outside your house. Your ISP will be able to test your DSL line to get an idea of where the problem is. It is also possible that this is an issue with your modem and it needs to be replaced. Ig you are leasing the modem then once again you will need to speak with your ISP about it. If you bought the modem then you would need to contact Seimens about it if the modem is the problem.
First, I would make sure you are using the right type of patch cable to connect to your cable/dsl modem. There are two types:
1) Straight through
2) Cross over
The manual for this device says to use #1 when connecting directly to a computer, and #2 when connecting to a hub.
If the cable/dsl modem is powered on and you are not receiving a link light on either the cable/dsl modem or your computer, try using a different cable.
If this does not work, then you may have a problem with the device itself. At that point, call your Internet Service Provider, as they may be able to provide you with a replacement.
If you did not receive this device from an ISP, then you will have to contact the manufacturer directly. Unfortunately, it looks like Efficient Networks was bought by Siemens, so you may have a hard time receiving support from them.
