Alcatel 510 - Reconnecting


Alcatel 510 - Reconnecting


My Alcatel 510 v4 sometimes loses the DSL line when I am using the 'Phone. Once this has happened, I have to connect to the Alcatel and wait for it to find the line again, then re-connect manually. Is there any way of making it re-connect as soon as it finds the line again, cause its quite annoying.

I have got a filter on the Phone line, and the DSL line is wired directly into the master socket with some cat5 cable. I think it maybe the filter so I went to pc world to see if they had any decent ones but they only had the same as what I have already got (Same make but in a belkin bag).

In short,
1.How can I get my Alcatel to Reconnect automatically.

2.Can anyone recomend a decent microfilter for me to buy ?

My 510v4 reconnects no problem.

Have you saved your username and password? If you open the web interface there is a 'Save All' link on the left hand side in the maroon part of the page. Clicking this will save the username & password to the router. You should have no trouble with it re-connecting.

I'm using an Alcatel filter. Out of three bought two were faulty, but the last one is going strong.

Have clicked the save all button, and pulled the cable out and plugged it back in. Worked perfectly - Thanks.

I cant seem to get the 'phone to disconnect me by picking up and putting it down, which was giving me grief before - oh well - fingers crossed !!
