You'll just need to reconfigure the router. Hard reset it first. Press the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power for 20 seconds then plug it back in.

Using the main computer, open your Internet Explorer and on the Address Bar type http://192.168.1.1

It will prompt your for username and password. Leave it blank on username and type admin on the password

Under SETUP tab, click the sub-tab MAC ADDRESS CLONE
Click on ENABLE and click the button CLONE YOUR PC's MAC then click on SAVE SETTINGS at the bottom.

Now powercycle your devices. Turn off router first and then modem. Wait for 30secs. Turn on modem first, wait for lights to stop blinking then turn onrouter.

That's it. You should be able to go online behind the router and the phone should also work.

Panasonic cordless, no dial-tone, not ringing yet landline seems to be ok since computer is working.


although the computer and the telephone use the same line, they do not use the same system
frequency for a telephone is vastly different to adsl and it is in the exchange that the difference occurs
get ( borrow) an old phone and plug it into the socket and if you have a dial tone , it is the cordless system that is faulty
if the batteries are recommended at 1.2 vo then that is what you should be using as that is what the phone frequency will be set to use

Phone doesnt have dialing tone, cant make a call also when we ring home its goes to engaged tone


This means that your phone line is short circuited somewhere.
The technical name for it is Partial line Lockout.

Try unplugging anything connected to the phone line, including modems, fax machines, house alarms etc (as faulty equipment can cause this), then try ringing home again. If it now rings, plug things in 1 at a time and ring each time to see what is causing it.

If it is still an engaged tone with everything unplugged, then the short circuit is on the phone line in the street and needs to be repaired by your telephone company.

My phone doesn't have dial tone. Each time I dial a number and try to call,it wont work. I call my phone but it wont ring. I need help on this. What happen to the phone? Or what should I do?


If you have another phone connect it to the wall outlet to see if you get a dial tone. This will indicate if your base unit is faulty.
Check the power adapter to the base unit, make sure it is getting mains power.
If the base unit has dual phone lines and if line 1 is only connected and the line 2 has beed selected then you cannot get a dial tone. In the chase press the line 1 to get a dial tone.
If your base unit has only one line then check the phone line at the wall socket make sure it is plugged in tight, also check the the connection at the base unit.
If this does not work then ring the phone company and get the to test your phone line, you may have a faulty line to your home.

No dial tone, shows line in use when reciever picked up.


Plug another phone into the telephone socket that your fax plugs into if there is no tone it's your line. Otherwise, your telephone cable could be plugged into the wrong hole if there are more than one hole available. Hopefully it's nothing serious and most probably the line or wrong connection point as I said.

Greetings my hp office jet its not faxing nor receiving faxes. it says no dialing tone


At a guess, I would say your phine line is either dead, or you have the line connected in to the incorrect socket. The phone line needs to be plugged into the socket that has an 'L' next to it. Check this first. If this is plugged in, check the line to the wall socket to make sure it is plugged in. If all this is good, press the hook button on the front of the unit, if it has one. You should hear a dial tone. If there is no hook button, get a phone and plug it in, if there is no dial tone, get a telephone tech in to check your line. If there is dial tone and you still can't fax. the unit has a faulty modem and will need to be replaced.
Being it a HP ink jet, should this be the case. throw it out and buy a new printer as the printer cannot be fixed because HP do not supply spare parts for their inkjet printers.

BT Freestyle 2200 do dial tone


I have this model of handset but as a triple. I get three beeps from the handsets if the batteries are low or flat.
Are your phones getting charged?

However,

Try putting the base station into a different phone line/ socket if you have one.

if not - Try putting a corded phone on your phone line. Maybe there is something faulty with the socket, maybe there is no dial tone due to faulty wires?
