Filters should not be fitted to the phone connected to the magicjack device.
You need a computer to register on line for the first time also connected to the same Wi-Fi as the magicjack.

The magicjack device must have external power on and plugged into the Ethernet connection on your modem/router.

Check you have an internet connection first, via your computer, or it will never work.

I have constant trouble with my toshiba laptop using windows vista constantly losing the dial up internet connection.


If your telephone line may have disturbances from any electronic devices at any point then this could happen. Try moving other devices especially speakers, mobile phones and TV near the modem. Does your laptop wifi enabled one? Do you use telephone in that line? If so use a line filter with two out. could you give your laptop model no.? There is not enough details to pinpoint the problem

Can hook to the wifi, just not to the internet, any suggestions?


check the connection from your router to the phone line ensure you have a filter installed.
Then check the phone line with an ordinary phone to see if you get a dial tone.

If there are any problems with the dial tone or you still cannot connect, contact your service provider.

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.

The magic jack is pluged into the phoneline directly


OK.. First of all, I am hoping you understand the basics of the MagicJack concept ?? Highspeed Internet connection on your PC, MagicJack plugged into your USB port, with a phone plugged into the other end of the MagicJack ? It requires High Speed, no dial up, and marginally works on my wireless Broadband due to atmospheric influences. It DOES work on my bluetooth wireless cell modem just based on the better speeds I get from the modem vs. my wireless Broadband.

1. If you have a Cable Modem or Wireless Broadband Dish for internet, follow the steps below.. IF you have DSL, skip to # 2.. if you have Dial-up skip to # 3,

I personally own wireless Broadband, so my ongoing experience is from here. I own a MagicJack for traveling and a Vonage line, for my house fax line service because the MagicJack is not strong enough, power wise, to push through my CAT/5 house, phone lines. Vonage does provide phone for the entire house, for the most part, cleanly, because Vonage uses a powered router to provide the final signal, which I then jumber over to a phone jack to connect into the house. It also requires that you disconnect your external phone lines, that would normally go back to the "Big Bad Phone Company". This can be done at the demarcation point, where your regular phone lines connect into a box, outside your house ? The internet I have, is in my shop, about 150' from the main house, Vonage's router power's the whole house, just fine.

2. With DSL, you will have good solid speeds, but you will still have the issue of, MagicJack, being too low in it's power source, because it comes from the USB port of your PC. You are basically going to be stuck with a single wireless or corded phone, for the MagicJack service. In this case, since the DSL is fed through the BBPC phone lines, you will not be able to 'pipe', even Vonage back through your house phone lines.

3. If you're on dialup, you're going to have poor service, out of the box.. you're just not going to be fast enough to be clean.

As an added note.. Your query for help is concerning.. again, high speed internet into your PC, MagicJack plugged into your PC's USB port, the phone plugs into the MagicJack's RJ-11 phone port.


Thank you for your time in these matters.

Respectfully,

Using MagicJack for faxing; however, Brother MFC 290C is stating poor line condition - why? Also say's low ink Magenta - would that create this problem?


I had the same problem trying to send out faxes out using my Brother MFC 7340. I use a magic jack phone line. Page 106 of the user manual says if sending via VOIP phone line, you should press menu, then 2, 0, 1 to select "Basic (for VOIP) mode. Then press ok. Then press stop/exit. This cuts the modem speed down to 9600 bps and turns ECM off. Then retry to send the fax. I did that and can now send and receive faxes.

No Dial tone using Symantec Winfax Pro 10 on Windows 98


Check the physical connection of the phone line to the computer make sure that it is connected to phone line symbol of the Ethernet adapter. Then make sure that the driver of the adapter is installed properly on the computer or you can try to scan the hardware first before the re-installation of the driver using the adapter.

I have a Qwest Actiontec modem that has worked fine until today. Now the DSL light is blinking and the Internet light does not come on. I have rebooted, but no fix. thanks!


If the DSL light is blinking it means that there is no DSL carrier signal to your modem. Check the phone line and make sure you have no open lines and filters are on all the devices hooked up to your phone system except your modem. You can check for an open line by hooking up a phone to the phone line going into your modem and listen for a dial tone.

Trying to launch internet explorer.it gives me error 680.


680 - There is no dial tone.

All versions of Windows are affected by this error.
No dial tone: There are many possible causes of a No Dial Tone Error.
First, try testing the modem's ability to detect dial tone and to dial by using HyperTerminal with the direct to COM port connect method - see Using HyperTerminal. If you give your modem an AT&FX1 command, and then a dial command, dial-tone detection will be disabled; if you still do not get dial tone, the modem may not be installed correctly (especially if it is a PCI or soft-modem); or the cable from the modem to the phone-line jack may be bad or installed in the wrong connector on the modem - try another line cord, and make sure you are plugged in to the LINE - not phone - jack on the modem. Plug a regular phone into the phone jack on the modem and make sure it has dial tone. The modem may also be defective. Many new modems come with an electronic circuit instead of the traditional electro-mechanical relay used to take the modem off-hook. Some of these designs are proving less reliable; often, they will be 'stuck' in the off-hook position, so unplugging, the plugging in the phone cord may give dial-tone. If this is the case, the modem needs repair or replacement.
If the modem will blind dial (x1), but not detect dial-tone otherwise, the problem is likely to be in the proper selection of the Country in Windows->ControlPanel->Telephony or in improper installation of the modem or lack of support for your country in the driver you are using. Check to see if there are updated drivers for your modem.
If the modem dials properly with detection (x3) in HyperTerminal, but does not detect dial tone when using DUNs, the problem may be DUNs (check for upgrade or re-install) or the proper setup and modem selection for the DUNs connectoid.
For Embarq telephone service customers, this error can indicate that you have a message waiting in your voicemail. Embarq changes the dial-tone sound to a "fast" busy signal when a new message is present in your voicemail box. This "fast" busy signal can confuse the modem into thinking there is no-dial tone present on the line.
