Are the lights off?

TEL lights are only flashing

If the TEL lights are the only ones flashing in the front of your telephone and internet modem, then your phone is in use according to your modem. Check all your phones to make sure they are hung up.

Reset the Modem

If all else fails, you can always try resetting your modem. Resetting the phone and internet modem will sometimes re-establish the connection if it was lost. To do this, look on the back of your phone and internet modem for the "Reset" button. It is a tiny hole that only a paper clip or pin would fit into.
