There is no port for broadband(RJ45) output in ZTE720 so if your phone line terminates at ZTE720 then Motorola cannot be connected to it.
On the other hand if you terminate the your phone connection at Motorola NVG589 then you will get broadband and no output to connect to a phone line.
However there is a way and that is the phone line coming to your home can be connected to a splitter (it has one input and 2 outputs, one for phone(ZTE720) and other for router(MotorolaNVG589)).
Splitter will provide output for both devices and they can work simultaneously.

The flashing DSL light means that the modem isn't seeing the DSL signal on the phone line it's connected to. This might be due to modem failure, but it might also indicate a phone line problem. The most common trouble I run across is an unfiltered device connected on the line that interferes with the DSL signal. Other than the modem, all devices (phones, fax machines, security systems, etc.) need to be connected to the line through a filter. Check to be sure something hasn't been connected without a filter. Sometimes a phone gets moved or a new phone is added that gets plugged in to a handy jack without being filtered.
If you can, try connecting another modem to the line. You may be able to borrow one, or find one at a resale shop. I see them quite often for only a couple of dollars, leftover from people changing to FiOS or cable service. This can help determine if the modem is responsible.
One final possibility: your DSL service has been cut off. I've had two cases where loss of DSL was a phone company issue that they needed to fix at their office. (One following some wiring work done in apartment building, the other when service was mistakenly disconnected from the wrong customer.)
This kind of trouble can be a headache to solve, but it can be solved. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!
It sounds like you have a fault on your phone line which is affecting the performance of your broadband.
As long as you haven't added any more phones to your house without a splitter, then I would go with the problem being your phone line.
You might want to give BT Broadband (assuming you have BT broadband with the BT Hub) on 0800 111 4567 they will be able to advise you further, failing that, you may need to log a call with BT about the phone line itself, which is just 151 from the line that you are having problems with. It is always best to phone from the line that you are having problems with, so they can hear that there are problems with the line.
This may be a filter problem on the phone line.
Have you got a plug in filter on the main phone socket?Usually they provide 2 filters with routers.
when you pick up the phone can you hear crackling if you can it's the filter.Bad connections on plugs.cable short or open.
If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.
Sorry but that seems to be a pretty convoluted explanation. Here is how it should go. Vonage unit connected to phone line(s) and cable modem. Linksys connected to Vonage box. Computers connected to Linksys. Ethernet has a length limitation of about 300 feet before you need another switch (hub) or a repeater. Does your wire length exceed this?
