hey guys, my friend got dsl internet. well i gave him my 2wire modem and he has the same problem i did when i first got it. the modem will not go online until a phone call using the landline is made. then the modem goes online (i know the modem is not bad becuase i took it to my other friends house and tested it). i had the exact same problem when i first got dsl and then somehow it fixed itself. i dont know if im right but i think the landline is not getting enough voltage thru the line for the modem to go online. when a phone call is made, the voltage increases. then when the phone is hanged up, the modem stays online for a few minutes and then drops the connection and constantly searches for a new connection... please help! its a 2wire 1000sw modem. i bought 3 of them and they have never failed me. do you think its the landline problem, or is the ISP still setting up the connection so its unsteady and it will get steadier in a few days?
