    Hi, Is there any kind of an external splitter I can buy for my phone and internet modem so I can get my phone calls while I'm online?

    Hi,

    If you have call waiting, you can buy a Catch-A-Call unit that sells for usually around 30 bucks. It will ring when a call is coming in and you can shut down and take the call without a problem. I used to use one and they work great.

    If you have dial up you can use call bumping on a V92 modem. If you have Broadband you can buy a filter that splits the internet and phone connections
