Re: Can not make call

It may be a blocked port on the router that is stopping the phone connection.

Try logging in to the router's control panel and turn on the DMZ to open all ports for testing.

If you can make calls after turning on the DMZ then you will need to get the correct port from your phone company to open on the router.

Don't forget to turn the DMZ back off when your done.

No dial tone when I plug into netgear wgr614

I'm not sure why you think you should be getting dial tone out of a wireless router? If you have bundled service thru your ISP and they are providing phone service then they will provide another device that plugs into your router and connects to your phone jack. This device provides the dial tone.

When I try and install my E1000 linksys router it causes the phone line (dial tone) to disappear. Also it doesn't have PPPOA as a protocol option. Also the linksys setup software says that it is n

Don't you require an RJ-11 for a phone line, cause I don't see one on this model? In any case, the ATM protocol should be handled by the ISP modem, and the router should just pick up the established network over Ethernet.

Connect the ISP modem to main uplink port. Then connect pc to any other port. Done. Some models come with a setup disc, but not absolutely required.,0.pdf

Telecom Issue, when a Netgear router (DG834G) linked to a small server unit, dissconnects the telephone line. The router works fine but no dial tone on the phone side of the micro filter. Any assistan

a POTs (plain old telephone) line should never be connected to a router. that adsl filter does not make a phone line share a data line.
ADSL is a type of internet service supplied over a phone line. think of it as raw (unusable) when its on the phone line. then you use your dsl filter/splitter to feed the raw internet into a special dsl modem and the other port can be used by a standard phone.

you will know a dsl modem when you see it because its uplink or internet port will only be big enough to fit a phone cord into, not an internet cord. these dsl modems then feed usable internet to your routers and all devices on your network. but, like i said before, at this point it is too late for your phone and internet to share the same wire.

OK, thats not entirely true

pin out of RJ45 internet
1=orange/white *
2=orange *
3=green/white *
6=green *

1,2,3+6 are used in a typical network

if your network is typical you can "get fancy" and use 4,5,7+8 for telephone or even put 2 data lines on the same wire (not recommended for long distances). however, this may involve cutting some wires and splicing them together or something.

My printer is connected to a router and i use a laptop connected to the router wirelessly. I have a telephone cable plugged in to the printer but i cannot seem to fax, there is no dial tone. Also what...

is that the first time you install the printer? you need to set up and do port forwarding or triggering specially if your laptop can go online using your router wirelessly. call your router manufacturer to open the port and get the port number from the manufacturer of the printer. make sure as well your printer is compatible with your router.

I think you need help from your telco, not from me. This looks like a local loop problem if you have no dial tone. Call your telco and say, "No dial tone, no internet". They will dispatch repair..

Have setup in this order dsl modem,dir615 router,spa2102 phone adapter,get dial tone,hear ringing when making or receiving calls but no voice,what gives??

incoming voice ports are not open on the router. the devioce uses one IP port to set up the call (ringing) and at least 2 others for audio. read the manual I'm afraid.

Internet connection problems

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?
