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.

WiFi with my Samsung TV. Today I get wireless connection; next 3 days no wifi. It comes back and then goes away again. I use wired connection, I get internet. I disconnect the wire and no wifi.

Sounds like your wifi signal strength is marginal, or you have interference.

How far are you from your router/access point?

Are there cordless phones, microwaves, fluorescent lights, large motors nearby?

I would just the wired connection. It will be far fewer problems!

Philips SJM3152 will not send signal to tuner from far

I don't have one of these, but I'm researching it for a gift...

The remote uses RF (radio frequency) only for the IPOD controls. For the other devices, it uses basic infrared. The RF works through walls - that's why you can control your IPOD from anywhere in the house. The infrared works like a flashlight - you have to point it at the device you are controlling.

My HP 6310 printer / fax is too far away from the phone line. Is there a way to fax wirelessly using this printer?

Only if you have fax software on your computer and scan an image to the computer to fax, otherwise you need a really long phone cable you can buy at Radio Shack or Best Buy.

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?

The phone on my Sharp FO-175 has background hum.

Make sure the machine is far away from radio generating devices like a power line, microwave oven, etc. try moving the machine around. Also, replug the earpiece. If it still persist, I suspect that the outlet is grounded. Our fax machine here has that hum also but the machine works fine..

Locate phone away from devices which may interfere, basically anything with a transformer. Dont use long extension cords to connect phone to a wall jack that is far away. Plug ac power adaptor into spike-strip line filter like an isobar. Try another extension cord and/or a different location to see if you can isolate the cause of interference. Interference will get in 1 of 2 ways, through the phone line, or through the power supply.
