Hi,

We have recently purchased a new router (upgrading from RTA-1025W) and as the RTA has a RJ11 socket which we used directly from the socket via a filter and the DIR-615 has a RJ45 port we have had to get a different cable (RJ12 - RJ45) and upon connection the cable it kills the phones (all of them) within the house but it does not dissconnect any calls it just makes you unable to hear, and as soon as the RJ45 plug is removed from anything it is plugged into, the call goes back to normal.

My question is, as we need to go from RJ11 or RJ12 if need be to RJ45 and the current cable seems to be unsuccessful what can I attempt to get at least the internet link light going.

(I have even tried directly plugging a RJ11 to RJ11 into the router, obviously its not meant for a RJ45 lug but the result was similar, ie no connection but phones didn't die)

You mention a 614 and a 615. What model do you have?

Both are not ADSL modems. They are only routers. You still need to have an ADSL modem to connect to the internet.

The RJ45 connector is an ethernet network port, not a phone jack.

I believe most of the Dynalink's support brudge mode so you could continute to use it as your ADSL modem and use the Dlink as your router/WiFi AP.
