The link for the Voip test is www.testyourvoip.com .

Given that your setup is simple, and you're getting wired internet service but not wireless and intermittent phone service, I'd guess that your WRT is going out and will need to be replaced. The fact that your phone light is on and you've got no dial tone is particularly disquieting.

Before you go out and buy new equipment, though, check the phone you're using and the phone cords. If you're using a cordless phone, then power it down and conduct tests with a simple corded phone. If it's a 2.4 GHz cordless phone then it could be the cause of all your problems, since these phones interfere with wireless routers and cause all kinds of interesting problems.

Thanks, Steve. Solved the wireless connection problem by adjusting security settings. Phone problem--plugged a wired phone into router, got dial tone. Plugged phone into house wiring, no dial tone. Very discouraging, since I had just had an electrician check and repair all of the wiring and jacks in my old house and everything worked great when he left. The next morning I woke up to dead phones, so, assuming it couldn't be my house wiring, I started rebooting to no avail. Could the firmware [1.00.62] be causing problems with my house wiring?
Results of www.testyourvoip.com=3.0.

You have the latest firmware, and I haven't heard of any problems relating to that firmware and house wiring, so I doubt that that's the problem. Are you sure that the electrician physically disconnected the old land line from the house wiring? I've heard of exactly the symptoms you're experiencing being caused by land lines disabled at the phone company end but connected at the user's end.

Does anything odd, such as a flashing phone light, happen to the adapter when you plug it into the house wiring? If you haven't already, try unplugging every phone that's connected to the house wiring except the one you're using for testing. If that corrects the problem, start plugging things back in until the problem comes back.

I disabled the telco line myself. I unplugged the phone jack-like plugs in the box outside and wrapped them in electrical tape just like it is described in this forum. Was I supposed to disconnect something else in addition?
The light flashes when the router is plugged into the house wiring. I've unplugged every phone and even ran a cord downstairs to the kitchen phone from the router to see if a different jack might work. Still dead.
I have recommended Vonage to so many people and swore to them there are no problems, and now I have an expensive mess and can't use my traditional jacks!

I have the exact same problem. Its was working fine, then suddenly stopped. I have another thread which may help you, but so far hasn't helped me.

No, you did it correctly. That should be good.

The flashing light indicates that either a phone is off the hook somewhere or you have a short in the wiring. That's why I suggested that you unplug all the phones. Since you've done that and the light still flashes, we have to conclude that you have a problem with the wiring. Since you've paid an electrician to check the wiring out, I would verify this result one more time. First, make sure that all the phones are really unplugged (you have kids?). Plug your Vonage box into the wiring and see the light start to flash. Unplug it and see the light go on steady. Then call the electrician and voice a complaint.
