The wire was probably damaged during the remodel and is now getting wet or has a staple or nail in it and that is causing your problems. You will most likely have to have someone come out and reroute the wire and replace it. Good Luck

There are a few things to try:
  • Move the router to a location that is higher off the floor
  • Move the router off of metal cabinets or away from large metal furniture
  • Get rid of 2.4 GHz cordless phones and buy DECT 6.0 compliant cordless phones
  • Buy a 9DB gain antenna for the router
  • Change the channel that you are using to one that you're not using: 1, 6, 11 (choose the one you're not currently using)
  • If your house has lathe and plaster walls, realize that these walls are like concrete -- they reduce WiFi signals by 13dB ( a lot -- drywall only reduces signal by 3DB)

Need to reset circuit breaker


  • 1 Turn off the light switches and unplug appliances in the room that has lost power.
  • 2 Find your circuit breaker box and open the cover.
  • 3 Locate the tripped breaker. Circuit breakers are small, usually horizontal switches labeled by the areas of the house they serve (for example, "kitchen," "bathroom" and so on). The tripped circuit breaker will be in the "off" position or in a middle position between "on" and "off."
  • 4 Reset the breaker by moving it to the full "off" position and then back to "on." That may clear an overload and return power to the room. If the breaker re-trips, you may have too many lamps and appliances plugged into the circuit; a damaged cord or plug; a short circuit in a receptacle, switch or fixture; or faulty wiring.
  • 5 Identify and correct the malfunction before resetting the breaker.

  • Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    Something is blocking wireless signal, i live in flat so in one room there is wireless router and in other room signal is very poor sometimes it's not connecting. i tryed 3 diffrent routers the last one is...

    There are several likely causes, if the building has plaster walls it may have metal lath behind it blocking the signal.(this is fairly likely the cause) If there are high-power microwave transmitters within 2 or 3 km, can cause spotty interfering. Neighbors with a wireless router close to your wall can as well.
    If you can move the router to a position across from the door between the rooms, you can test by connecting (wireless) your laptop near the router, then walk it into the other room (stay where you can see the router). If the laptop stays connected move across the room to a point where you did not have a signal previously, if you are still connected leave the laptop there and move the router back to its original location and recheck the laptops connection, if it is gone, it is your wall...

    The line is shorting that is why you get a busy .Have you replaced the telephone .Can you disconnect the wires going to all rooms at point of demarcation when the problem occurs .

    ADSL modem hangs when booting!!!

    It doesn't really sound more than it may be a bad phone line, I mean the actual wire. When you move it your connection changes. There isn't enough signal really to interfere with the motherboard on a EFI level.

    I have RCA Executive Serices 4 lin system Phone and I used to use headset all of sudden I hace message saying " Error: inhibited ". Would you plaese help fix my problem. Thanks for your...


    I had the "error: inhibited" problem with my RCA 4-line Executive Series phone as well.
    When I checked the line from the phone to the wall outlet, I saw that it had come undone.
    After I plugged the phone back into the wall, it started working normally again.

    I recommend substituting in a different, known-good telephone to see if that works.
    If you can't get any phone to work plugged into that extension, then the extension is dead.
    If another phone works but your RCA still will not, then the problem is with the RCA phone.

    A similar idea is to try moving your RCA phone, substituting it in place of a working phone.
    If it works in room X but not in room Y, suspect the phone wiring running to room Y.

    This phone employs a common but awkward means of wiring up lines two and four.
    Line two is wired to the wall by piggybacking on the patch cable used for line one.
    Line four is wired to the wall by piggybacking on the patch cable used for line three.
    A phone cord has four wires running through it, but a phone signal requires just two.
    The piggybacking technique leverages the cable's free pair to feed a second line.

    The upshot is that one can test the wiring for lines one and three with a simple, plain phone.
    To test the wiring to lines two or four, some specialized knowledge is needed.
    In place of that knowledge, a different two-line phone which also piggybacks might be used.

    That's detail you'll need to consider only if your problem is specific to line 2 and/or line 4.

    Anyhow, I hope I'm not patronizing by being too simple. But, I had this problem too.
    It turned out to have nothing to do with the phone itself; the signal wiring to it was bad.

    I realize that this feedback is a bit late and that you've likely already resolved your issue.
    Perhaps this feedback will someday help somebody else (since these Q&As are archived).
