Alright, can you people figure this out?:
I've had nothing but trouble trying to sign online, and I found out that the reason why is because whenever my phone line from the computer is plugged into the wall, all the phones say "EXT. IN USE", so its like taking the phone off the hook, therefore, I cant get online....
I've tried plugging the phone cord straight from the PC into the wall; same thing.
I've tried turning off EVERYTHING, and yet, if the line is plugged in; same thing.
Has anybody had this problem before?  :confused:

Did you have a power outtage? I had this problem where the power went out and I was online. After that my modem was unable to hang up. When I dialed it would say that it was opening the port, but the port was stuck in the open position. So what I had to do was plug in the modem a few seconds I was about to dial, otherwise it's just leaving a phone off the hook.

do you have a weird phone-system set up in your house where you have to dial 9 or some type of weird voicemail system that makes strange sounds when you have messages?

if so, then that may be the problem. If not, then its certainly not that problem. That's all I got for ya - good luck man :smile:

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Try to disable waiting for dial tone.
