Xr500 wifi on only one lan port
Was in storage a few months and before using I manually updated to the latest firmware. I can only get internet on one lan port at a time and wifi works fine. Plug my decktop into any port and works, but if I try to add my phone or another computer, router displays an amber light and laptop says "no internet". Phone has dial tone but cannot receive calls. Hope someone can help. Tried resetting a few times but acts the same.

Hard to unravel that information dump. Too much going on.
What has this got to do with your router?
Phone has dial tone but cannot receive calls.
This bit is stuck in the middle there:
router displays an amber light and laptop says "no internet".
Maybe that is the key detail. The rest is just distraction.
It may help to reboot the whole network in the right order.
Be sure to restart your network in this sequence:
- Turn off and unplug modem.
- Turn off router and computers.
- Plug in and turn on modem. Wait 2 minutes for it to connect.
- Turn on the router and wait 2 minutes for it connect.
- Turn on computers and rest of network.
