Why can't i get my phone ring


I have a seperate phone line for the computer. My problem is: When I plug a phone into the line in the back of the computer I can use the internet but when I signoff the internet that line does not switch back to the phone unless I unplug the computer and plug the phone into the wall jack. I bought a splitter for the wall jack and I still have to unplug the internet line to use the phone. I am really frustrated.

Let me assume that you are plugging in the modem correctly, you may have a faulty modem try another modem because your modem may not be passing thru signal, it's only receiving signal.
