Since you have a DSL Connection, have you installed a DSL filter on all connections that plug into a phone? Also, just making sure, you have no DSL filter connected to your modem correct?

How long have you been having the problem for?

Is this a new router that you got?

Have you tried power cycling both the modem and the router?

yes, I have filters for all of the phones, and the modem connects to the phone jack through a filter, but it plugs into the filter through a designated modem jack. I just switched to a wireless router a few days ago and like I said, it happens about every other time the phone is in use. I have tried resetting the router and modem a few times. Should I plug the modem directly into the phone jack, or continue using the filter? Because previously I had a wired router plugged into the filter and it worked just fine.

The modem shouldn't be connected to any filters at all. The modem should connect directly to the phone jack. After that the Ethernet cable should be direct from the router to the modem.

Try doing that and see if you are still having a problem or not.
