phone does not ring

My home phone does not ring anymore when my modem is plugged into a house phone jack.  I have had this set up for a long time.  However, I do get a dial tone and can answer calls when I see the caller id notification on my computer and TV.  The phone also rings when it is plugged into the modem.  This problem also seems to have started after I unplugged one of my corded phones from one of the jacks in my house.  This problem has happened before when I unplugged that phone from that jack.  Also, all of the modem lights started blinking after I rebooted the modem.  Is that phone jack bad or is there some other issue?  I would appreciate some advice on fixing this issue.


Thank You
