I'm using an ADSL 2wire gateway and it's been working fine for the past year.... Although, the question really isn't about if my router is broken. It's more about why do I still have DSL even though my phone has no dial tone?
A few days ago, my router started to disconnect pretty often. After restarting it, I went to check my phone to see if it was working, and sure enough, I could not hear no dial tone. All I heard were static noises...
I used my cell phone to call my home number and for some reason it had a busy signal.... so I can not make or receive any calls from home.
So I'm wondering, why does my DSL still work(even though it disconnects every 1-2hrs, sometimes every 10mins) even though my phone has no dial tone?
This question is off topic but, is it safe to leave my router running 24/7?
