The broadband link went down. Att runs a check and says that there is no dsl signal. What does this mean? They are coming to check out the inside wiring which they did two weeks ago - as well as outside wiring. In both cases they replaced something. I have 2 wire and my dsl is also connected to a fax. I have checked out all the connections. I have also replaced my battery backup. Today my connection started out ok and then was intermittent and then went down totally. Also, does shutting down the modem and rebooting the computer really do anything for this problem?

If that is the Voice Mail Waiting indicator light at the top of the handset and on the base, you need to press Menu on the base. Use the up/down arrows to select VMWI Reset. Press Menu again to select this sub-menu. Use the arrows to highlight Yes and press Menu again. You may need to contact your telephone company to make sure that the voice mail service is still compatible with the Frequency-Shift Keying message notification. Some broadband (particularly DSL) systems can cause telephone interference. Check with the broadband provider if you need a DSL filter (or similar item) to keep the interference from corrupting the VMWI information.
Are you using DSL? It sounds like you dont have filters on all of your phones. Each phone that is plugged into a phone jack needs a DSL filter on it, as well as the DSL; It needs to be plugged into a filter as well. You should be able to get these from your phone company or broadband provider. When you are online and your phone rings, the phone signal will cause interference with the DSL signal and cause it to drop.
the dsl connection is your broadband signal. check the router box. if the dsl light is off or flashing on the front, the setup will not work. this light needs to be solid. remove all devices from telephone sockets in your house, connect just one filter and your new router to it. check the dsl signal, if the light is solid green. the problem is with the physical setup in your house. If the dsl light still flashes contact your isp or broadband supplier.
Good morning! It's common to a Dial-Up connection to drop the line during session as signal strength is going low eventhough modem is working properly. Please try to use DSL / Broadband connection as signal strength is 1Mbps or greater. best regards.
Recreate your wlan network. WLAN signal refers only to radio signal between Router and PC no link with your capability to pass-through: wrong password, access list or firewall can block your access with the strongest radio signal. Check (or recreate ) your credential on your PC. Check if you can log as admin into your Router.
If you have a 2wire HG2701 it experiences problems. You will need a new modem or a new router. I have one but it has the same problems. I went to FRYS Electronics and bought an speedstream modem. WORKS PERFECTLY
Where is your exact location? You listed ATT DSL so I assume you have ATT DSL as your provider is this right?
I had them for years and I had the same problem. But its not your setup or your equipment, it is your service provider. You may be on the fringe area of the line signal. Any drop of power in the line which is already low voltage will cause it to drop out. The more customers using it the slower it will go.
All you can do is this:
1. check all the house phone lines for aging. If old replace the lines because they cause noise in the lines which degrades the DSL signal. 2. Check the connections at the phone box for signs of corrosion. Clean the contacts and wiring and reconnect. 3. Make sure you have filters on "ALL" your phones.
4. AFTER you do this( you have eliminated any issues with your equipment) then contact your service provider and tell them you are getting dropped connections daily. They should send some one out within a few days to check the signal strength. They also can check it while you are on the phone with them but not as effectively as them coming out.
