Re: how to connect two remote device with a phone line...
No, not with a phone line... you could but making a bridge connection with an utp cable... but with all respect, if you were thinking about a telephone cable you are surely not qualified to do that bridge without assistance... so i recommend the following.
You surely know that UTP cable (lan cable) supports a distance up to 90 metres which is about 295 feet. If you need to go outdoor for that connection i would recommend outdoor cable for that connection its very cheap... and you dont need two routers if you just have four computers tops...
other stuff like amplify antennas might help your reach the far away computer via wireless...
other way is to find info on how to build a bridge with two routers on the net by searchin on google, its not that hard, but you still need utp cable... never phone line.

if there are no line of sight issues or interference or obstructions then you can be atleast 300-500ft. however in homes depending on the building materials etc it could hinder your wireless signal and strength.
You can reset both the modem and the router by removing the power cord where it connects into the router (Called Recycling the Power) I would do it with both the modem and the router for about a full 2 minutes.
Sounds more like you have a connectivity issue from interference from something on you desk. Some known culprits are:
High Intensity Lamps
Radio Interference coming from your wireless phone
Power strip with filters for telephone signal
any other environmental issues including computer monitor.
Next door neighbor's router signal bleeding through.
Filter device missing from phone
Filter device missing from phone line connected to you TV
Try moving the router back to the old location. Does problem go away. You are now too close to something thats breaking your signal. I can log into my neighbors access point across the street and two houses away. Signals are strong but can be blocked by a lot of things mentioned above or tin foil.
Check it out,
A subscribed internet connnection would likely have been the providers responsibility. Once, the devices appear to be in functioning conditions as usual only has a remote signal compromise, contacting the service internet provider should resolve the issue. Also, the provider of the signals usually a remote computer would require to reconnect to your computer in processes discussed. Once informing the admistrator of the remote computer, your systems would require powering of completely, thereafter, the remote server computer searches to acquire the devices requiring reestablishement. Shortly thereafter your systems of computers modems are powered back on to ascertain the new settings of signals. The condition would have been caused by the remote computers replacement of devices where their disconnection causes yours to disconnect. However, the subscriber has to reach to the provider for reestablsiment unless notification of the shortage is being communicated with an alternate arrangement least yet arrived. Contact the internet provider. Goodluck
Most likely causes are:
Your router is to far from the computer..try to move nearer.
There is an obstacle in the building that causes the drop. Walls, metal objects like fridges or filing cabinets are likely culprits.
You have a device that is near the router transmitting on the same frequency. Dect phones or microwaves...move router or device further away.
There are other routers nearby transmitting on the same or close channels. Google, download and run a utility called INSSIDER, this will show other router and their frequencies. Find a channel where there are no other routers and change your router settings accordingly.
If your not sure how to do this, please request another answer with that topic.
If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.
How far away from the router are you? Try moving close to the router, then when connected you can move away. Does your network have a hidden ssid? Your network maybe hidden for security reasons so you will have to type in your ssid manually. Also make sure that your router will allow such devices onto its network, e.g the router may only allow known computers onto the network, in which case you will have to add your ipod to that list. Last but not least, make sure that your router is set to use all Draft wireless B/G/N 802.11. Good luck :)
how far away is the computer? this usually happens when the signal is weak and the computer has trouble keeping connected, try moving the devices closer together, failing that do your windows updates as the newer updates improve wireless capabilities.
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?
Usually this is because of radio frequency (RF)interference. Typically, if you have three devices that are working correctly for over a year then it is none of these devices...it is something else. Did you get any new electronic gadgets (Blue Tooth, portable phones, wireless anything) when this started to happen? It is probably something in the area of the router that is interferring with the WIFI input and output.
Solution: move the WIFI router away from the device that is causing the interference as far away as possible.
Also, it may be caused by a device on you...new cell phone, new Blue Tooth that is causing the interference. Try removing or turning off all these devices and see if that doesn't help.
