Speed Stream 5100 Modem -

I've connected a Speed Stream 5100 modem to a split phone line and it cannot get connection to the internet. Why?

    Where do I get an AT&T approved phone line splitter if those you mentioned are no good? And, why is it if I run a 25 foot line to a regular phone outlet that is wired differently with a splitter on it, it works? I put that splitter into the problem phone jack and I still can't get a good connection. I'm tusing a Linksys SRX wireless broadband Router (Model WRT54GX) and a Speed Stream 5100 Ethernet ADSL Modem. Does how the jack boxes mater how they are wired?

You must use a phone company phone line splitter that is approved for DSL usage. If you use a radio shack or walmart phone splitter it will not work.

    Call your isp and they can provide you with one. DSL is real funny on what will work and not, but the easiest and for sure thing is to get one from your isp. Make sure the line you put the isp splitter on is not a split line itself.

How to fix wifi disconnect when cordless phone rings


If you are using DSL, you most likely do not have your line split between the internet and phone. At that point, you need to find the filtering devices provided with your DSL modem and connect one phone line from the phone slot to the cordless phone jack, then connect another phone line from the internet slot to your DSL modem.

Assuming that Windows has recognized the modem, and has loaded the correct device-drivers, Windows can use the modem.

You'll need to find an Internet Service Provider that provides "dial-up" service.

You'll need to have a land-line telephone (not a cell-phone) with your local telephone-company.

Connect a 4-wire cable (not an 8-wire Ethernet cable) from the "line" port on the modem to the telephone wall-jack.

Then, follow the instructions given you by your Internet Service Provider to configure your modem to connect to their dial-up server. Or, telphone them, and their Technical Support staff will guide you through the necessary configuration steps.
