Re: reconnecting linsky router

Make sure that DHCP should be enabled or you can put IP address mannuly. 69 port for DNS should be open otherwise it will not get updated from vonage.

Dial tone of my phone disappears whenever i switch on my computer and my d link dial up modem can't find dial tone. What should i do?

Disconnect the telephone-cable from the computer's modem.
Does your telephone regain the dial-tone?

If so, then replace the computer's modem -- it is going "off-hook" as soon as you turn on the computer, not just when you try to use the modem to open a dial-up session.

I have the RCA DCM425C cable modem and also Vonage phone service. So my modem ethernet connects to my Vonage internet. I would like to go wireless in my house. How would I do this?

You would connect from the output of the Vonage modem to the wireless router and then from the wireless router you can connect Ethernet to your desktop if you have one and then anything else can run off of the wireless.


get a wireless router / cable modem combo provided by companies such as netgear then you would connect the Vonage to the router through one of the available Ethernet ports and any other Ethernet connections to the router as well and anything else wireless would work wireless.

My AOpen modem fm56-svv say: NO CARRIER

Assuming you have checked the connection to actually make sure you have dial-tone, you could go into the modem's properties page (Control Panel -> Modems-> Properties) then go into the MODEM tab and make sure to UN-check the box that says "Wait for dial-tone before connecting". Sometime the modems don't detect dial-tone properly.

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.

if you are having problems with call outs its a problem with the connection of your vonage phone line, if you are using a filter double check it, about a router in the modem.. to verify that information, observe the connection of the modem if the cable at the back is connected directly to the back of your computer tower.. or if there is another modem-like box between your modem and computer connection, if so.. meaning there is a router..
aside from having problems with your vonage fone.. are you experioencing internet connectivity problems?
