Question about Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port Switch, Retail Box (DSLSBEFSR41)

1 Answer

Answering the phone.

I have a BEFSR41. My ISP is Optimum Online. I am using an AIM phoneline program. When I dial my number, the call alert box pops up, it tells me I have a call coming in, and the number the call is coming from. When I click on "Answer Call", the ringing just continues, and then switches to voicemail. I've checked the headset, and it works properly. How can I answer a call ?

    I realize that I know less than anyone about all of this, but how do I know if I have an internet filter? How do I login to my router? The IP address of what? The username, and password for what? Sorry I'm so dense. Thanx for trying to help.

    I can't send you the router because my computer is not the only one hooked up to it. Do you want my phone number ? Can you send a program to fix this ?

Steps to program speed dial on the Walker/Clarity Model W-1000 Touch Tone Sound Amplifier desk set phone w/large number pad.

1. Choose phone number to program including the (#1) digit for a long distance direct dial if
Write chosen number(s) on a scratch pad as a guide for numbers. Identify numbers with the
names or contact description (ie."Mom's Cell Phone.")

2. Remove hand set receiver from phone.

3. Press "memory set" button ONCE on the phone located uder the receiver on the desk set.

4. Enter phone number chosen,including area codes and long distance prefixes if needed!

5. Locate the speed dial position button you want for that number...(located adjacent to
tag/pad slot for name and/or phone number to be written after entering.

6. Press the speed dial position button (ONCE). Then replace receiver back in craddle.

7. Try out speed/dial program. Pick up receiver, push speed dial button(position) listen to see if
correct phone number is contacted. Once established as correct; program additional speed dial
numbers: ie family, business, as needed.
own memory!
9. If you make a mistake while entering a phone number: Stop, Hang up phone and start all over
again in the procedure sequence.

10. Remove white "description pad with slots for names or numbers) from underneath clear

Tivo box

If you have call waiting or another service, make sure you have any codes you need in the dialing prefix. if you have dsl, make sure you have a phone filter on the line coming from the tivo.

Has your phoneline w/ the tivo ever worked? or is this just new?

You can try another phonejack in the house. You can also try a different dialing #. Sometimes they take them down.

If you have a broadband connection, you can use a usb to ethernet adapter and dial in over your network. It's quicker and doesn't tie up your phoneline.
