Here are some things to check...

First call the phone company make sure no outages (I am sure you have already done this)

Try another phone in the same jack and other jacks in your house.

If you go outside you will find a service panel. There is a customer side and a phone company side...you can usually open with a regular screwdriver...

You will find a phone jack...plug in any old working analog phone...if it works from there...the problem is in your house...if it does not work call the phone company....the problem is on their end.

Good luck my friend

    I see you added an additional comment after my post...well your comment changes everything. :) Of course my solution was innapropriate.



    Although, I do not have any first hand experience with Skype (We use a different VoIP provider)...here are some random thoughts:



    There could be a compression or bandwidth issue...

How do i connect a 1960 rotary phone up?Which wires do i hook up? I have a blue wire &a blue white wire coming into my building,


The Blue and Blue/white represent the first pair in a multi pair telephone cable. The second pair is orange the third is green and so forth. If this line is active, you will get a dial tone when you place a telephone instrument on this pair (or any subsequent live pair). Notice. If you are hanging on to the pair when the telephone rings - you will experience a 60 volt DC shock. It will not kill you but you may find it unpleasant.

On your Western Electric '500' telephone set, you should have three wires coming out of the original cable, a red, a green and a yellow. Normally, the red and the green will operate your phone on a 'private line' (only one customer on a private line). Try various combinations until you get a dial tone. You no doubt have a private line as there are very few party lines around these days if you are in the USA (and please do not say). Once up on a time, there were "party lines" where neighbors shared a line and they knew the call was for them based on the number of rings. The first customer got one ring, the second customer got two rings and so forth up th as many as 4 rings. When the telephone rang, you listened for the number of rings and answered only if it was your number. Picking up a call that was not your ring was frowned upon though it was not unknown for neighbors to listen in to other neighbors calls. It was like a reality show!

If your 500 has been upgraded with a RJ-11 wire, plug the wire in just as you would any modern telephone. If yours doesn't ring, remove the cover and study the interface. You will find several terminals marked L1, L2 etc. Move the wire you find on a "L" terminal to the various otgher L terminals until it rings when called. You may also have to adjust the spring on the ringer to get it to operate properly.

I hope this information helps you get your 1960 telephone to work.

Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com and enjoy your old telephone.

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.

Everytime the phone rings my wireless connection goes away. I am also unable to secure this network. the model number is f5d8235 4


Your phone is using the same frequency as the wireless router (2.4GHz). It would be very difficult to prevent this unless you change:

1. Phone to corded system.
2. Change phone to cordless DECT (5.8GHz) system
3. Change network router from "G" series to "N" series.

Internet Resets When Phone Rings


Logon to your router and change the bandwith you're using you might be on the same bandwith as yor phone, so when you get a call on your phone, the wireless router will get interupted,
thats if your phone is wireless !
if it's a cable phone your splitter might be bad :D

hope this helped oh..
almost forgot

on how to acesses your router.

go to run dialog box in your start menu. then type in CMD to the box
then you'll get a DOS looking command prompt, Type in IPCONFIG

then look for Defualt gateway, looks somthing like this

192.164.1.1

tpye your defualt gateway into your http bar (the top bar you tpye www.lol.com in)

then you'll probably get a box with a logon name and password. the defualt for it is

admin
admin

or

admin
password

then after you've logged on you can look for the wirless tab and change the bandwith you're broadcasting on.

if you still cant acesses or cant find how to

go to portforward.com then lookup your model and it will show you what to do :]

I need to change the channel on my dlink 625 router..can u help?


I presume it's a cordless phone? If so, it's possible that it's interfering with the wireless signal. If that happens you will see the wireless connection being dropped - go into the wifi config utility and check how good the connection is. If this is the case, changing the channel may help. To do that,bring the router over to your PC and connect with an ethernet cable (just in case something goes wrong with the channel change and you lose the wireless signal.).

You need to find the "router homepage" in your web browser. If you don't know what it is, in windows click start -> run -> type "cmd" and press enter. In the command screen that pops up type "ipconfig" and press enter. It'll show you a few things. One should say "Default Gateway" followed by numbers.Write those numbers down (probably will be something like 192.168.1.254).

Open your web browser (IE, Firefox etc...) and enter the numbers. This will bring you to the router page. There should be an option like "Wireless" and under there you should see "change channel". It may be in the advanced option window.


IF your computer is NOT dropping the wireless signal when the phone rings, but the internet connection does drop - check the DSL signal light on your dlink. If it is flashing or not on, then the problem is with the DSL filters (small white connectors sent with your modem.). Always ensure any phone on the same line as the DSL is filtered or it will cause the internet connection to drop whenever the phone rings or is picked up.

Losing connection lately, and no caller ID??


Hello Kimberlynbil,

You actually have two problems here, one can be solved (but it's hard) the other might not be able to be solved at all.

First the hard (cost wise) to solve problem: Caller ID
What you can do is get a wireless phone that works in the 5 GHz range.

Now for the second problem which is why I suggested the solution to the second problem: Router cuts off phone and phone cuts off router.

This occurs because the router (wireless) and the phone wireless are using the same frequency spectrum 2.4 - 2.5 GHz. when the phone tries to communicate with the hand set the router sees this as an interference and ups its power slightly and this drops the phone call on the first ring which consequentially is the ring on which the data for caller id travels. once the phone senses the interference from the router it up is power slightly and then "steps on the router's transmission cutting off your wireless connection to your PC. So the phone and the computer are off line until one of them stops transmitting.

I hope this helps,

WRP 400 Inbound call issue


This could be due to the fact the when using multiple routers you need to let the main router know the routes into the second router.

I do have a question as to why you would use the second router and not the dlink?

I would suggest dropping the dlink router/modem and get your ISP to send you just a modem and then use the linksys. Or of course don't use the linksys and just use the dlink.

Belkin N1 Router connection drops when phone rings


You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).
