Phone does not ring

Phone does not ring

When I have my cordless phone base plugged into a phone jack in my house, I get a dial tone, and am able to make calls, but when I call my home phone it will not ring. When I plug in directly to the modem, it seems to be working correctly. Can anyone help me resolve this issue? I need to plug my base in a central location of the house so the phones work better, and my modem is at the far end of my home.

Re: Phone does not ring

I would guess your home wiring was never disconnected (phone box or in basement) from your local phone company.
Good luck!
