For the last couple of days I've been losing DSL/Internet connectivity every time I begin to work over the internet. As I start to input data, the DSL and Internet lights on my router start blinking red and I lose connectivity . The outages last from as short as 30-35 seconds, or I may have to reset the modem. I've done all the backwards troubleshooting (disconnect, power down, etc.) but nothing seems to completely solve the problem. Can you offer any suggestions? Thanks.....
I encountered the same problem, the problem persist until the provider repairmen found old an fragile terminals to their posts and cables need replacement...and i've spent days trying to trouble shoot on my end..better call them first.

yes, you can use them together. they'll find each other at protocol layer 2 (bridge) and layer 3 (router), and route packets appropriately. Check their manuals to make sure that their HTTP management page ip addresses are different - say 192.168.0.0 for one router and 192.168.1.1 for the other - so that you can manage them separately without disconnecting them. You'll want to manage them separately to assign them different wireless-N channels. Channel 6 is the default, and allowing both to compete on the same channel is a bad idea - give each its own wi-fi channel. There are 11 wireles 802.11n channels, labeled 1-11.
Each link in the diagram above is an ethernet (802.3 10baseT) cable (except the DSL cable, which is twisted pairs), and wireless devices can hop onto the Internet by wirelessly connecting to either the AT&T 2701 or the NetGear router.
Turn everything off for 2 minutes, cable modem, router and pc.
Turn on modem and wait 2 minutes for the modem to sync to TW. Turn on router after 2 mins and wait until the router syncs with the modem. Turn on PC It sounds like your router lost its connection to the cable modem, which happens from time to time. TW will not help with your router. I worked for a cable co and the router and modem losing sync was the at least 70% of the calls. FYI cable doesn't use DSL,just the phone co.
i worked for verizon for two years and I encounter this problem many times,to tell you honestly,its not with you internet connection since if you'll notice,while you are connected to the internet and you make a call or call someone,its interrupted... Obviously,its the phone itslelf,the signal comng from the phone is different from the signal of the internet...thats the reason why you need a modem to convert the signal coming from the phone line to make it work for internet,,,what I suggest is you change the DSL plan from the Dry Loop to the regular dsl with the phone...
