Question about Computers & Internet
I was working on a bottom levl 750k down 250k up cable modem connection threough cox in orange county and I am connecting to a pc that uses a 60 foot hard cable to my router. I am getting the beep and static and eventual cut-off after say 20 minutes of talkin.

2. Does the proximity to my router matter?
3. will it help if I upgrade to a 12MB down and 1MB up speed?
4. Can I compare Magic jack to acn iris 3000 quality, vonage, skype, et al...?

Right. I've fixed it!
Here's what I did.
- You need to upgrade to the latest firmware. This is available from the Philips website. Make sure you select exactly the model of your phone. There are some instructions about how to upgrade the firmware in the manual
- Then you need to perform a reset of the system. ie: get a sharp tool and ram it into the tiny little hole on the black box which comes with the phone. If you don't do this after upgrading, it doesn' t work.
- One other tip is to check the firewall settings on your router allow the traffic in/out as well.
I called the Philips service center, and they were a bit useless, but they said if it doesn't work you could try taking the batteries out of the phone for 4 hours. Hmmmm... only try this if the above doesn't work!

I will try to make this as clear as possible, but if you have nay questions, please come back here and let me know.
You will need 4 things: 1 Surfboard Modem, Wrt54G, vonage router, computer. Put them next to each other without having plugged in anything ( no ethernet, no power cable!). Make sure that the WRT54G router is back to default settings by pressing the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds.
If so, please come back and let me know. Others might have a similar question.
If not, just tell me where you got stuck and we will go from there. According to the movie 'Galaxy Quest':
"Never give up, never surrender!"

First of all: it would be good to know which devices you are using. This would help to be more specific.
