Configuring DSL for All RJ-45 Jacks

We just moved into a house that is preconfigured for all jacks to be CAT 5 RJ45. The DSL modem only allows for a single PC to be connected. I have a Linksys Etherfast Cable/DSL Router and appropriate network cables/Ethernet cards, but don't want to drill any holes in walls. Is there a method to run the DSL modem to the phone input coming into the house in such way that every jack is live for phone (currently) and DSL? We have 5 PC's that need to occasionally share the DSL modem..

The simpliest way is to have a wireless/ wired 4 ports router and install it beside your modem and locate where your Cat 5 cables central end is. Identify the Cat 5s that are connected to the 5 locations of your PCs if all of them are not capable of wireless connection you need to add a switch (4 port or 8 port) which you also need to connect to one Lan port of your router.

Hope this helps.

Cannot connect to my Internet. On my 2Wire modem at home, The Power LED light is solid green, the Ethernet LED light is green, the DSL LED light is continually flashing, and there is NO Internet LED...


With the DSL light always flashing, it means that either the ADSL signal (synchronization) does not reach your modem, or your modem cannot 'read' the signal.

You need to determine if the problem is from one of the following places :
  • outside of your house (your land line or ISP equipment) or from the modem;
  • your telephone-cable inside your house or
  • one of your equipment;


Try the following manipulations to determine from where the default comes :

  1. Determine if the problem is in your house or on the land line
    • Unplug each and every equipment which is connected to your telephonic installation (Fax, phones, answering machines etc);
    • Using the shortest telephone cable (RJ11) you possess, plug only your modem to the main telephone jack of your house.
    • If the DSL LED still flashes continuously, the problem is somewhere between your ISP's equipment and your house. You should call them and expose the situation. At this stage, you can't do much else.

  2. Determine if the problem is in your house installation
    If the DSL LED lights up when it is plugged to the main telephone jack, then it is either one of your equipment which is at fault, or the house installation. To pinpoint the problem, do the following :
    • With all the other equipment still unplugged, try the modem on all the other telephone jacks you have around the house.
    • If the DSL flashes continuously on one of the jacks, you will have found the source of your miseries. Depending on your ISP's terms and conditions, you will either have to call them of call for the services of a third-party technician to solve the problem.
    • If the DSL lights up correctly on all the telephone jacks, then your house telephone installation is good. Proceed to the next series of tests.

  3. Determine which equipment is at fault
    • Plus your modem to one telephone jack and wait for the DSL line to light solid.
    • Use a splitter (ADSL filter) to plug the equipments you possess (telephone, fax etc) one by one. Verify each time if the DSL LED is still lit or flashes continuously.
    • If one of the equipment causes the DSL LED to flash, it is that equipment which causes your problem.
    • If every equipment causes the DSL LED to flash, the it is the splitter (ADSL filter) which is causing the problem. You can confirm this hypothesis by testing each and every ADSL filter you have in your possession.
    • Replace any faulty equipment and you should have eliminated the problem.
If nothing of this solves your problem, you won't have any choice but call you ISP. Don't hesitate to tell them all tests you will have done.

May I also make some recommendations :
  1. Use a power surge protector (not a UPS though) to plug your modem to the electric outlet BUT plug it directly to the telephone jack;
  2. Make sure your modem is plugged in as far as possible from UPS, television, etc.;
  3. If possible, don't plug the modem in the same electric outlet as other equipments;
  4. Don't use any telephone extension cable to plug your modem to the telephone jack.

Hope this helps you. Let me know what happens next.

Have at&t dsl, no home phone, moved down the street had everything transfer, hook up modem have red light on dsl, after dealing with at&t they sent me new modem hook up last night still same...


If you can try the modem on a KNOWN working DSL line, then do so! What you want to do is confirm that the problem is, or isn't with the modem itself. Also, if you have access to a good, working DSL modem, that would help resolve the issue.
BTW - DSL modems are fairly cheap, you can pick one up at Best Buy.
From there, if the modem is bad.... you'll have to replace it. If it's a DSL issue, AT&T will have to resolve the issue with your line.

Adding new extension to Nortel Norstar Meridian Phone System


you should have a panel designated for the system phones only and a panel for your wall jacks.

you only need to take two wires from the designated phone extension you want to activate to the wall jack you need activated. If you have a RJ 45 panel all you need to do is patch one end to the system phone port and the other end to the wall jack port make sure on the back side of the panel that the wires are punched down. The thin wires will need to be punched down with a special punch tool that you can purchase from Home depot or Lowes depending on what kind of panel it is. White/Blue,Blue/White,White/Org.Org/White.White Green/Grn/White.White/Brown.Brown/White.Solid White with violet color stripe.Solid Violet with white stripe is the color code in which to punch down for each cable. What city are you in may i ask?

Not recognize my pc but not laptop


I have yet to see a single DSL modem that will allow USB and Ethernet connections simultaneously (and actually work properly). You should install a DSL router instead.
