PostPosted: Sat Jul 02, 2005 1:10 am    Post subject: RT31P2 no dial tone or short fast busy signal on either port Reply with quote Back to top

Earlier this morning, everything was fine. My RT31P2 sat behind a Buffalo WBR2-G54 and had worked flawlessly since my installation back in January. Then from work, I installed OpenSSH and forwarded port 443 to my main computer. At about the same time, we also had a pretty big storm. (But, the router's on an UPS.) And, ever since, we've had no dial tone.

I've deleted the SSH port forward, no dice. I've reset both routers back to their factory settings and started over, no dice. I've eliminated everything but the adapter and the cable modem, and no dice! I've made four calls to tech support. The first time, I hung up before I got anyone. The second time, the guy told me to call Linksys! The third time, we were making progress and my call was dropped. (I have to use my cell.) And the third time, while being transferred to level two, I get cut off again!

I can connect to the internet through it, but just can't get a dial tone, and they've had me try both ports. Is there anything else I can do?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Patrick

Two more calls today. The first one was dropped 11 minutes into the call (I hate Verizon wireless!). The second call, I was FINALLY able to get through to tier 2, which gave me an RA# and is sending a new unit. Of course, we won't get it until Wednesday or Thursday. Now to wait and see if a different unit of the same model will resolve the problem or not.

I received the new router yesterday, hooked it up, and my worst fears were realized. Same damn thing!! Spent FOUR F**KING hours on the phone with support, and it's STILL not fixed. Eek

The "advanced" tech support did tell me DO NOT SELECT THE NO DIAL TONE OPTION WHEN CALLING THE SUPPORT NUMBER! This will route your call to India, where you will be stuck in router rebooting HELL!! About any other option will get you to NJ, but you will wait on hold forever to get someone. Rolling Eyes

IF they get my service back up tonight, I'm still going to try either SunRocket or Lingo. It sux, because I was the biggest Vonage supporter EVER up until last Friday. Sad

My co-worker got Vonage a week after I did (end of January), and they STILL haven't ported his number!! He has way more patience than I. Well, that and they keep comp'ing his service.

Just got through to Jersey (my 11th or 12th call), explained the problem, and he said, "let me transfer you to our service dept."
I said, "Please don't send me to India."
"How'd you know?"
"Because I've spent three days on the phone with them changing ports, rebooting, and nothing's worked."
"Well, I can send an e-mail to my manager..."

I told him it's been out for a week tomorrow, and sending an e-mail to the manager is the solution?? F**K this company!!

And if anyone's questioning my motives or networking capabilities, I work for Charter Communications (but my ISP is Comcast), and I've had a wireless network in my house for over three years.
