urgently need help! wireless and modem arent working togethr

Last week i added voice of ip telephone services to my cable plan so when they hooked it up they had to give me a new modem that had phoneline hookups. ever since, my belkin wireless g has limited or no connectivity, or if i fidget with it enough my belkin will get internet but not my desktop.

the modem is the scientific atlanta DPL2203 i believe or something to that effect.

i dont know if its because they are incompatable or what. all i know is that i'm going to go buy a new laptop tonight and it would be nice to have it fixed (even if it means having to buy a wireless n router)

just before you guys say to unplug them all and reset them, ive already tried.... to no avail.

Can't start.

In reply to: urgently need help! wireless and modem arent working togethr found nothing. I can't check to see if such a thing has a router or needs some specific settings.

If you can't find a known make, model number then you should call up your local support people and have them come in and fix it.

Also this is not an urgent forum. That is, you post and it may be days for a reply. Longer if the details are incorrect. For urgent things you call up service people to come in and fix it.

the loud voice of ip

> i added voice of ip telephone services to my cable plan

typically that costs more than a reputable VoIP provider. Please compare your cost increase to the costs- and NUMEROUS additional features of these awesome providers (descending order of feature quantity): (as low as $8/mo)

they all provide excellent voice quality and reliability

> because they are incompatable

that is extremely unlikely

> even if it means having to buy

insist your isp address your issues first

Does the 'modem' your isp provided have its OWN wireless features?
