Q: Internet disconnects when phone rings

I've been having this trouble since! It's very irritating and I'd love to find a way to fix it.

I have a cable connected to the dsl modem in my sister's room and the phone is connected in my mom's room.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I just got DSL and now everytime the phone rings i get disconnected. When i got it they gave me a Westnel 327 router/ modem and filters for the phones. I have the phone line going directly into the modem/ router, then from there i have a wire running to my linksys N Gigabit 310 router. I have the router shut off on the westnel. Also all phones also have the filters on them.

Anyone have an idea what the problem could be or what to test?

lets me start off with saying I'm sorry for how long this is, but I will cover everything that has been done.
I had my 1st dsl account with verizon for about 3yrs it was terminated for nonpayment (their messup), never had any problems. they tryed to make thing right by setting up a new account new modem and 6 months free, from day 1 evertime you used the phone(either pickup and or hangup) the dsl disconnects, now it's to the point where 2 seconds before the phone even rings the dsl dissconnects and it seems like every 20 min or so the dsl randomly dissconnects. verizon has sent 32 techs to my house. after the 1st yr verizon decided to install the homerun package (NID is split house lines and jacks are filltered and dsl line unfilltered) problem is still there, this was tech 15 or so that did that. 2 yrs and 17 more tech still dc'ing. Even with no phone pluged in and calling the house with me cell it dissconnects
1st acount 3 yrs no problems

A:verizon dsl disconnects when, phone rings pickedup or hangup

This is clearly an ISP issue, and they're the only ones that will be able to fix it. Since they've installed the DSL filter and a direct line to the modem, that's as good as interior wiring gets.

The techs are correct, this is a problem either in the lines coming to the house or the CO.

This problem began last week after my connection dropped off completely but once it returned after about an hour my internet would disconnect (not when the phone rings) but rather when it was answered.

I looked into the issue online and found it could be related to wrong settings on my Netgear router (which I checked out and was fine), the other issue that came up was filters.

So I rang AOL who said to change the filters and I put two new filters on and this seemed to stop the problem until tonight.

We changed the filters on Thursday and the problem stopped so we thought fantastic! Until tonight the phone rang and off went my internet.

It's odd as the disconnect only occurs when the phone rings and the connect immidiaetly restablishes after the phone is put down.

I'm wondering if there is anything further I can do as I feel like I'll hit a brick wall with my ISP (AOL!!!!), I've heard that it could be my router/modem is there a way to test this?

Anyone experienced a similar problem or have an idea how I can solve it or what the issue is?

Here's my router log if it helps;

Every time my phone rings my wifi signal temporarily disconnects. I use Verizon Fios and my router is a Actiontec MI424WR , the phone that is doing this is a Vtech 2.4GHz model 2428. I've tried changing the channel on the phone but cant seem to get it to change. I dont have a control panel on the main pc to control the router so I can't change the router channel at the moment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thnx in advance.


A:Phone Rings= Wifi DC

Actually, you change the channel of the Actiontec router by logging into the router's web based configuration. If you have a connection to the router, you have the "control panel" to change the channel.

I have XP pro.

I turn off the computer but when the phone rings it comes alive!
It's very annoying....
What can I do ? (sorry for my rather bad english)

Thanks !

A:XP get alive when phone rings !

Welcome to the board,

ok..are you sure your turning the system off and not putting it into standby..

Check this: go into Start > Control Panel > Phone & Modem Options > Modems Tab > Select your modem, click on properties > Select the Power Management tab:

Make sure the box labeled "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby" is not checked.

If it is uncheck it click ok, and you'll be fine.

But why your system is going to standby when you select Shutdown would still be a problem...but one at a time let me know if the above info fixes the first problem before we move to problem 2. :D

I had this problem when I first setup my wireless laptop. I bought a 5.8 cordless phone & everything worked great till recently. I have all my filters on. For about the past week evertime I answer my phone, I get kicked off line. I recently reinstalled a.o.l. on my laptop & I don't know if that had something to do with my problem. Thanks

A:getting knocked offline when phone rings

If you are using DSL, I suspect you have either wiring issues or a missing/defective filter.

Here's my RX for bad DSL wiring.

Purchase a DSL splitter and install it at the telco service entrance. Run a direct line from the DSL port on the splitter directly to the DSL modem. Connect all of the other phone instruments to the telephone output of the DSL splitter. All of the DSL analog side wiring should be CAT3 or better twisted pair from the telco service entrance to the DSL/ADSL modem. You can use one of the twisted pairs in CAT5 cable if you have that on hand.

This is as good as it gets for DSL installations, and will usually solve in-house wiring issues.ing issues.

When ever i am on my laptop or playing my ps3 and my house phone rings i instantly lose my connection. Both of these things are connected via Router (Wirelessly).

So today I decided to call comcast (I have Comcast High Speed Internet) so when i called them they said that I needed a booster and that they would send a technition to hook it up. But is this really what i need?, is there anything i can do besides getting a booster?

And what would this booster do?


A:Disconnected when house phone rings?

I have no idea with regards the booster but do you have filters on all your phone sockets. I know that here you need a filter to separate the voice part from the Internet part and the router connects to the line through the filters.

That may not be anything to do with your problem but those are my thoughts.

A:Computer Starts When Phone Rings...

Go into the modem settings and turn off the auto answer. If the modem is set to answer when a signal is comming in it will activate the computer. I also do not think you are fully turned off check to see if you are in Hybernate mode and turn that off so when you shut down windows it actually shuts off.

A:computer restarts when phone rings- modem?

The first thing that comes to mind is that you have call waiting and it needs to be turned off. To make the modem ignore the call waiting inturept, go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Modems and under Dialing Properties, near the bottom is a setting to disable Call Waiting. Check that and select *70 from the drop down box.

I am still using dial-up as my main source of Internet access. I use a PCI SoftV92 Modem hooked up to a home phone line. This is the only line into my house, I have a slitter plugged into the line, with two ports, one has a line plugged in that is connected to the modem on my PC, the other has a line that connects my telephone. The telephone is a dual-system, it has a cordless phone and a base phone (not cordless).

My modem worked normal with my phone ever since I had my PC. Normally, when the modem was connected and one would lift the phone off the hook, you would hear the various noises of the Remote computer on the other end. If someone called while the Modem connection was active, they would hear a busy signal.

Recently, I had to reformat my HD. So of course I had to reinstall windows. So of course I had to reinstall the drivers for my modem.
This was about 5 days ago. Ever since, if someone lifts the phone of the hook, the modem will automatically disconnect. This is true with both the cordless phone and the base phone. If someone calls, they still get the busy signal and the modem does not disconnect, but if someone lifts the phone of the hook or turns the cordless phone on (like one would do to get a dial tone) noises can still be heard from the phone, but the modem disconnects.

I have searched through the various settings on Internet Properties, modem options, connection settings and stuff like that on my PC.

I have a large Toshiba P25-S520 running WinXP Home. In the summer I shift from Cable
broadband to dial-up. This year, When I connected my phone line to the RJ11 hook-up, my telephone connection literally died. When I tried to dial up the internet, I received a "no dial-tone error." The minute I disconnected the phone line from my computer, all of my phones started working again! I checked the hardware device list and the modem is o.k. and I also "queried" the modem as well. All seems to be in working order.

I should mention that my husband's laptop works just fine, with no problems whatsoever.

Hello, I just got a new computer and I'm having internet problems. I used to use an old XP desktop with direct connection and it stayed connected, used my vista laptop with direct connection and it stayed connected, and now with my new W7 desktop the internet does not stay connected. It just disconnects and reconnects in a split second. This interferes while I'm playing games (3 different games), it'll tell me I have lost connection, and when I check my internet connection it says I'm connected. Sometimes I see the little internet connection icon on the bottom say X then a little loading circle then back online in a second. It interferes when I'm streaming also. It happens every 10-30 min or so and it gets REALLY annoying. Anybody have similar problems? Any way to fix?

A:internet disconnects


First welcome to TSF!!!

Next I would try a couple of things. Start off with a power cycle of your equipment, and see if that helps. Next you would need to narrow it down to what is causing the problem. Does it only happen when you are using chrome or does it happen with other browsers, more to the point does it happen with other programs that use the internet like email, instant messaging, etc. Are you running any programs that allow you to torrent, that can cause issues with your connection.

Every so often when i am on the internet it disconnects and i cant open any web pages. The connection is still there in the bottom right hand corner, ip address etc. are still there but web pages wont open. I try to repair but i have to reboot to make it work again. I am using a laptop on a wireless connection, think this also may have something to do with the freezes it get occasionally.

Welcome to TSF.

We will take a look at your system for malware, but it's unlikely the cause of loss of connection. If we can't locate a problem, you will be encouraged to ask for advice in the Networking forum, here at TSF.

Download HiJackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HiJackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose [Do a system scan and save a logfile].
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit [Scan] and then click on [Save log].
3. Post the HiJackThis.log file here. Do not fix anything in HiJackThis since they may be harmless.

Hi All
I have been having internet disconnects every since I have had VISTA. It is the same that used to occur in WIN ME & 98. It happens when you spend a long time surfing on one web site. There was a fix for this problem then and I have forgotten it. It is not my server as I have another computer with WIN 98SE and it does not happen. I have to cycle my DSL modem off & on to reconnect. I am connected through a router to a second computer and to the modem and the second computer stays connected. The internet icon (lower right display) will indicate local only is connected.
Any help would be great. Forum


Dell E-520

A:Internet Disconnects

If you're using a laptop or server, the network card may be configured to go into power saving mode releasing the IP address after a set amount of time of non-activity.

Which version of Windows Vista are you using? Vista is known to have plenty of networking issues on it's own so it may be worth searching Microsoft's KB (Knowledge Base) at www.microsoft.com if you're familiar with it.

Also your computer system mentions a Dell E-520 which appears to be a standard desktop PC, would you be able to confirm this?

Finally, if you could post the results of an "ipconfig /all" while the network is connected and then when it becomes unavailable, this would help troubleshoot the problem.

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Thanks for your cooperation.

For as long as I remember my Lenovo G580 would randomly stop recieving an internet connection from my wifi, leaving it still connected but without the ability to go online. I have been solving this problem by disconnecting and recconecting from the wifi, however this has been a temporary solution as the problem keeps coming back. I know this is a problem with the computer because it never happens with the other lenovo laptops in the house nor the phones connected to the same wifi. Im monitering this post so if you reply expect a response very soonThank you for the help

Welcome to the Community Forums. 
You may try unchecking power saving features on WLAN properties under device manager and likewise place any similar roaming aggressiveness / tendency to highest .

Hello everyone, I'm running a windows 7 operating system and I need help I've been having this issue for a few weeks. Usually when I download something big or stream my internet on my PC specifically will go out and I cannot get it back unless I restart my pc I have tried ipconfig/renew and I get the unable to contact DHCP.

Now saying that, I have tried other methods that don't work at all however my wifi works perfectly on my phone and other devices in the household and it is only my pc. I am connected via Ethernet as well but I also sometimes use a wireless adapter however have not experienced the internet go out using the adapter but for network adapter I have updated drivers, tried different ports as well as using different cables and none of those have helped I've looked up many solutions and none seem to work please help thanks

Hi there guys. I've have had some great help from all you guys here and I need your help again.
So my internet recently has been acting weird, not for just one laptop, but for all of them, The only thing that seems to not disconnect is the computer hooked up to the routers. I thought it was time for a new router so I bought two new ones to replace the old ones, so I did. They were replaced but the problem still continued! I updated the router firmware and it would fix it temporarily, but after a day it started again.
Please let me know if you need any info at all.

I am having an issue with frequent media disconnects. Upon booting my system, browsers do not connect to the internet. A restart fixes the problem for a while and the system eventually disconnects again. I have hardwired cable and supplier provided cable modem. The system says I am connected but browsers don't function until a soft restart. My PC is for personal use and is owned by me. I have recently added Spybot AV and previously used Windows Defender. McAfee in the distant past. None of them show much and if they do and the item is fixed, I still experience the same media disconnects.
