Wireless connection shows it is "Disconnected"

Recently I had our company computer service personnel put a long distance land line connection on my desktop for convenience. Since then I have not been able to connect to my home (or anywhere else) wireless system. I continually see the red "X" in the wireless connection box and it shows "Disconnected" and when I click on "disable" and then click on "enable" it goes back to the "Disconnected" sign and shows no local wireless sources. What might be the problem?

    Did you try connecting to any wireless network?
    By right clicking on the wireless icon that has a red X then go to view available wireless network.

Could be:

Try these.

Magic Jack long distance service on internet


I have a Magic Jack and it is plugged into my computer. I don't have to do anything to call a long distance call. Do you have the new one that does not need to be plugged into you computer? You do not need to have any other application running to use magic jack. I know you said something about outlook express and yahoo, but you do not need to have that open. All you need (if you are attached to a computer) is your computer running, magicjack running on your desktop, and an internet connection. I hope this helps you.

Inside telephone wiring is disconnected from phone company wiring


Yes, this is normal. The phone company connection provides needed power for land lines to operate...I believe this is refered to as "tip" and "ring". Hope this helps.

Our Lucent 4450 system all of the sudden says "your long distance carrier has been temporarily suspended." I've confirmed all our bills are paid and AT&T says it is not their phone lines. We recently...


Are these new lines that were recently added?

If the phone company says that the bills are up to date, and these are new lines, make them check all the lines individually.

I have seen that the phone company has given a new customer lines, but the lines were restricted because the previous owner of the lines was behind on the bills, and it wasnt changed when the switch happened.

LAND LINE TELEPHONES: Can you not assign a long distance carrier?


Yes you can have your phone set to local calls only.
You have to speak with your service provider and tell them you no longer wish to be able to call long distance from your house phone. but still want local calls only.

Caller ID


The caller i.d. option is a bit of a tricky service. Most businesses make it crucial that if clients are called or any call made from the company will show name + number. It really depends on the carrier. Land-line services have really captivated the caller i.d. option, but with wireless services available now, it's always hard to determine who's calling you, unless the number is already programmed in your handset.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you.

D-link dir 615 ; can't get other desktop to read wireless network


Please understand as I get very basic to start but things very obvious to you I cannot see.

Generally when including a router in a home network starting from the cable (tv) or the phone socket (dsl) in the wall with a phone wire plugged in. The next box is generally provided by your internet service provider and is a modem/something that connects to the phone line or cable. Then sometimes when only one computer exists computers are directly connected to the modem with an ethernet cable (looks like a fat phone wire with oversize connectors) or a USB cable (small flat retangular ends).

When you want to add a router for multiple computers. The computer gets disconnected. If a USB cable was used it is often replaced with an ethernet cable and that cable connects to the WAN port (probably separate from a block of 4 lan ports) of the router you bought (tell me if you have two routers -- that is a different problem). If your service comes from a cable (tv) company your router may already be properly configured. If however you have DSL service from the phone company the chances your router is correctly configured are less. To finish with the cabling story -- your computer then hooks to one of probably 4 LAN ports all in a block. Now if you are lucky power on all devices and boot up your computer and see if you have internet access. If you do great if not please provide me the name of your internet service provider or a link to their help/support website and I will see what I can do to assist in completing the router setup. Until your wired computer gets access to the internet your girls wireless connections will not work either. Once we get the wired connection working we will address the wireless connections.
If necessary unplug the router and plug the computer back into the original cable until we get the router working.
