Theres no need to "Reprogram" your router.
A) Remove the power cable from the back of your router.
B) "Reboot" your DSL modem. In some cases there is a reset button on the bottom or back of the DSL modem. In other cases you must remove the power cord then remove the battery - then put it back together.
C) One the DSL modem has power, restore power to the router.
D) I would at this point reboot your PC in case a new IP was assigned (Unlikely, but to be safe)

Have just new ish house. Internet if fine .. works ..well ..however previous person has a ADSL Filter. If I take if off .. I get BB but no Internet


The DSL filters should be connected to your telephones, it filters out the internet noise from voice calls.
There should be no DSL filter connecting your DSL modem to the incoming phone line.
(you can have one after the modem to a phone though)
Depending on your phone system, it may interfere with DSL or internet connections without the filters.

If you don't have enough you can pick up extras on ebay, used ones should be just as good as new ones as long as they weren't hit by lightning.

If your router is a cable router call the cable company and have them reset the router back to factory specs. If it's a DSL modem, the phone company can do the same thing.

Zoom X7n Dsl 2/2 Modem/router/gw DSL light will not stop blinking - trying to connect with Earthlink


Earthlink is not your local telephone company? You would need to contact your local service provider. If earthlink set up your DSL thru your local telephone company, you may have to have them contact them. Does your local phone to you or do you subscribe thru what they call a CLEC?

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.

DSL loses signal during VOIP call.


hi,

i worked for verizon for two years and I encounter this problem many times,to tell you honestly,its not with you internet connection since if you'll notice,while you are connected to the internet and you make a call or call someone,its interrupted... Obviously,its the phone itslelf,the signal comng from the phone is different from the signal of the internet...thats the reason why you need a modem to convert the signal coming from the phone line to make it work for internet,,,what I suggest is you change the DSL plan from the Dry Loop to the regular dsl with the phone...

thanks and God Bless

Yes i want to find out if a cable modem will work with your dsl phone internet service?


No.

A cable-modem connects with a coax-cable to the cable-company's network, but a DSL-modem connects with telephone-cable to the telephone-company's network.

Lost internet connection


Change the calbe from the router to the dsl modem. Make sure you check labels on the rear of these devices to make sure the connections go where indicated. Is there and ethernet light on your modem. If that is on then the connection is made. Also check if the DSL modem works directly connected to the pc.

Power off the router by unplugging it. Also power off the DSL or cable router. Shut down the PC. Located on the back side of the router is a small reset button. Using a pen press and hold for ten seconds. Same for the DSL or cable. Power every thing back up starting with the DSL/cable, than the router and lastly the PC.

Reprogramming


Open Internet explorer and type the ip address of the router in the address bar and hit enter. (it should be 192.168.1.1) The setup page for the router should open. Click "Advanced" then click "ISDN Configuration" then click "ISDN Parameters" You can enter the new SPID's the phone company gives you there. Good Luck, El Duderino
