You must have all your phones plugged into an adsl filter (not the router) otherwise the internet drops when you use the phone and the internet will make loud noises down the phone.

Internet signal keeps dropping


There's a lot of possiblities here.If you have a DSL/dialtone lineshare,listen for noise on the line(humming,crackling static,dropped calls).If you have a dry loop(DSL only),connect a phone in place of the modem and see if it has an "intercept" message(like "you have tried to call a number out of your service area" or something like that).If it does,you can use a phone to check the line when the DSL drops(don'touforget to put an inline filter on it).If the DSL light doesn't go out when the Internet light does,it is NOT a problem with the physical line.This would be an issue with the modem or the equipment at the serving end.( I am a DSL tech,and spend lots of wasted time diagnosing and trying to fix problems that are beyond my reach(central office server issue) or that I didn't need a dispatch for(it is cheaper to send a new modem than to send a tech).

How to Check main causes of Hissing Noise on phone line ?



The main causes of Hissing Noise on phone line

* Weather:
Precipitation can leak into phone lines and cause disruptions. Lightning, even at a distance, can damage the connection.
Checked the connections the cable and the Sockets
If you have the Test socket or the First Socket where the Telephone is is entering .. check the Connections there

* Electrical interference:
Check the Power lines,
Check radio or television transmitters, transformers and other electronic devices may causing noise on the phone line.

* Other phone devices:
Check for the Connection to the FAX check by unpluging the FAX Machine or answering machines,
Disconnect the other phones and line splitters --
Disconnect the Splitters or devices that allow two phones to fit on one phone jack -- can cause phone line noise.

* DSL services:
The high-frequency signals coming from DSL (digital subscriber line) devices sharing the phone line can create problems for other technology connected to the line.

***Note : high-frequency signals coming from DSL helps for FAST Internet Connection speed which sometime cause the problem to the Phone or Voice signals for this need to contact to ISP to check the Voice margin .. that may effect your internet Speed

IF the above wont work..

You can try keeping the device near Heater .. it could be the Moisture which might causing this issue
or
Show the Device to the Service provider to repair it

How do I boost the signal from an at&t 2wire dsl modem so that the signal will work better in some parts of the house.


for wireless signal 1st thing to consider is the EMI's (eletro-magnetic interference) anything that is near that modem that produces static electricity, radio frequency and magnetic energy (eg. cordless phone, speaker, anything electronic...) isolate the modem at-least 6 feet away from this said EMI's.
2nd you may check on the the wirelss settings on your modem's GUI(interface) see the link:http://support.2wire.com/index.php?page=view&article=60
wireless channel and power settings and the only once you should change... channel such as 1,6,7 are sometimes used by other device (wireless phone, neighbor's router) power settings: as you place it on a higher number it gives longer distance but gets thinner space(area)

consider the red signals as you place the power higher the signal gets longer but thiner.
lastly wireless doesnt penetrate walls/ glasses it only bounce back and forth to it... so less wall or interference the better chance of going directly to the access point...
if you really havea big house try consider buying wireless booster/repeater...

Printer is not connecting to wi-fi keeps staying red and won't go to green


This could be a firewall issue. Make sure to allow full access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall.


Place your printer where it receives excellent wireless signal quality and away from other electronic devices which can cause wireless interferences (e.g. cordless phones, microwave ovens, baby monitors, garage door openers, and other wireless electronics).

Theres no dsl light on the router, its a d link dsl2640b. so i need to know if its broke, the power light is on and the status light but no dsl light and no internet light on router, the pc is showing...


The flashing DSL light means that the modem isn't seeing the DSL signal on the phone line it's connected to. This might be due to modem failure, but it might also indicate a phone line problem. The most common trouble I run across is an unfiltered device connected on the line that interferes with the DSL signal. Other than the modem, all devices (phones, fax machines, security systems, etc.) need to be connected to the line through a filter. Check to be sure something hasn't been connected without a filter. Sometimes a phone gets moved or a new phone is added that gets plugged in to a handy jack without being filtered.

If you can, try connecting another modem to the line. You may be able to borrow one, or find one at a resale shop. I see them quite often for only a couple of dollars, leftover from people changing to FiOS or cable service. This can help determine if the modem is responsible.

One final possibility: your DSL service has been cut off. I've had two cases where loss of DSL was a phone company issue that they needed to fix at their office. (One following some wiring work done in apartment building, the other when service was mistakenly disconnected from the wrong customer.)

This kind of trouble can be a headache to solve, but it can be solved. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

My DSL 2wire modem always blink like crazy.


DSL light blinking green/red indicates you do not have a solid connection to your DSL signal. Typically this can be anything from the connections at your home all the way to the connections with your ISP. As I do tech support for this model of 2wire modem all day long here is what I would tell you to do if you were calling me:

Are you using the proper length of phone cord (15ft or less): people sometimes have a longer phone cord in use and while it MAY work for a while outside conditions will effect the DSL signal enough that it no longer cuts the mustard. The longer the phone cord the more resistance a signal has in reaching the modem.

Filters: Typically the 2wire modem comes with 3 1-way filters and a single 2-way filter. Often people put the wrong filter on the modem, which doesn't even require one, or they put the correct filter (2-way filter) but hook it up to the wrong end (that is to say it should be connected to the DSL side of the filter). All other devices in the house such as phones, fax machines, Tivos, DVRs, Sat TVs, and monitored alarm systems (AKA anything ELSE connecting to/using the phone system) should be on filters.

Phone service: Do you have phone service? Do you have a dial tone or static? If so all problems with phone service will effect your DSL service as that is how the DSL service is piped into your home...that is to say through the phone line. Do not contact your ISP for this problem as it is a phone line problem creating your internet problem.

Phone jack location: Have you tried moving the modem, it's power cord, and proper length phone cord to another jack? Granted the argument that "it worked yesterday, so it should work today" is a strong one but sometimes putting the modem on another jack JUST to test out any potential wiring problems is a helpful one and could save you a lot of frustration. If one jack gives you red/green DSL lights and the other gives you solid green...that should speak for itself.

ISP provider: IS your service turned on? It may be a bit...hmmm...how shall we say....obvious but if your service has been turned off, or not even turned on yet, then that would be why. In addition, if the above does not help in determining what the problem is, a technician may need to be dispatched to determine where the fault lies. Sometimes it's the box down the road and sometimes it's a few miles away.

Intermittent ADSL connection


The DSL light blinking or going out indicates that the DSL modem is loosing sync. This is usually caused by noise on the line. When you get the DSL service you should be given filters to put on all of your phones so that the phones will not interfere with the DSL signal. Those filters need to be attached to anything connected to the phone line that has the DSL on it except for the DSL modem. Other than that the problem could be on the service providers end, something outside your home, or the DSL modem going out. I would suggest that you verify everything is filtered, then contact your service provider so they can run test on your DSL line.

Interference from 5.8 GHz cordless phones


I fixed my own problem. I went to the system setup page for the router and changed the channel to another mghz setting. I found one that didn't conflict with the cordless phones. My son is very happy now that he doesn't get kicked out of Halo3 every time we get a phone call.
