Yes you can use this router to a DSL or Cable Internet Service, so it will be fine if you switch from cable to DSL......

Theres no dsl light on the router, its a d link dsl2640b. so i need to know if its broke, the power light is on and the status light but no dsl light and no internet light on router, the pc is showing...


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!

Hi, I need to connect my comSwitch 5500 to the Cable/internet/VOIP. Command Communications ComSwitch 5500 is a Telephone Line Sharing system- (automatic phone/Fax Switch) sold under the following...


I'm not one hundred percent sure on this, but it does look like you need a separate phone line since VOIP revolves around using your internet as a gateway for making phone calls. And since majority of VOIP uses ethernet connections, or wireless, there is no phone line to use.

Followed all the set up steps but my DSL light would not stay on


  • 1 Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on your wall. If you do not have Internet ports installed in your home, connect a phone line adapter to a phone line jack. The adapter makes the phone line wider so Ethernet cables can connect to it. This does not block your phone from use.
  • 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Internet port on the back side of the Netgear DSL modem.
  • 3 Connect the Netgear DSL modem to a local power source. The power plug inserts into the modem via a small port on the rear of the modem.
  • 4 Insert a second Ethernet cable into one of the numbered ports on the back of the modem. Run the cable to your computer and plug it into the Ethernet port on the computer.
  • 5 Look on the back end of the DSL modem for an HTTP: address. Type this into your Internet browser's search bar. The Netgear DSL modem menu appears on the screen.
  • 6 Select how many computers are to use the modem, if you are using it with other DSL modems and set up a password (the default username and password is "admin"). Click "OK" to initiate the changes you made to the menu. You can now use your Netgear DSL modem to connect to the Internet.

    Can the microsoft MN700 Router be used with cable internet instead of DSL from the phone company?I switched from Verizon DSL to Comcast Cable internet but can not find an answer if the MN700 is compatible...


    I would say yes but i have not tested it personaly, but what i know about routers it should work with. Cable internet and dsl are exactly the same thing. The only difference is how its delivered to your house and the speed of it.

    DSL tands for "Digital Subscriber Line." It is medium for transferring data over regular phone lines and can be used to connect to the Internet

    cable the same thing except it is internet though the cable line. you u run the out of your

    you probably wont even have to change any settings on it either. the line out of the back of your cable modem will plug into the same spot the old cable ran to when you just had dsl.

    if this has been helpful please mark it has fixya. also please rate me, and if you have found it very helpful or informative please recommend me.

    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.

    1st: Have you paid your bill?
    2nd: Have you power cycled?
    Full Power Cycle is as follows:

    Turn off all components plugged into the router(Computers, Printers, etc.) Unplug the power from the router. Unplug the data cable(DSL, Coax) going TO the router. Wait aprox. 1 minute. Plug data cable and power cable back into router. Wait about 1 minute. Turn computers back on. Problem Solved?

    If not and you're using DSL make sure all DSL filters are in place and that none have come undone. Make sure the phone line is still plugged in. Problem Solved?

    If not contact your ISP and ask if they are doing any maintenance in your area that may by effecting your service. Ask them to perform a line test on you. If all else fails ask them to have a technician come out and help solve the issue.

    Kick out of the line during internet surfing


    verify AT&T if your modem have built in router, if does disable the DHCP server from second router, if you are using wireless, change the channel to 8 instead of 6, maybe you have neighbors using the same channel.

    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.

    When the cordless phone is in use the internet on the laptop cuts out can anyone help


    Assuming you have DSL - Verify that you have a DSL filter in the phone line that leads to the base unit of the cordless phone.
    Assuming your laptop connection is wireless - See if there is a frequency conflict with your wireless internet and the cordless phone.
    If neither of these suggestions help, please reply with specific details regarding your internet connection (Cable/DSL) and the connection of the laptop

    Wireless router installation


    Please see my response to this question. Your university's connection is most probably a LAN connection, so you'd need to follow the instructions as if you had a cable internet connection (unlike DSL, a LAN connection and cable internet connection don't require authentication with the ISP).
