I want to have my phone line split into two physical lines-one to my phone and one to my fax machine. When I try this, using "Tel 1", all the lights blink and the phone goes off-line. What am I doing wrong?
Solved! Go to solution
I have the same issue, EXCEPT I cannot plug the "mother" phone into the fax machine.. they are on different levels of the house. Why don't the phone jacks in the wall work? Comcast/Xfinity came out and installed the lines so I know they are theirs...
Another question.... Why are Xfinity Techs NOT replying to these messages??!! Shouldn't they be monitoring for problems... one would think.. LOL
Your issue is a little different. Try plugging the telephone out connection from the cable modem into the nearest wall outlet for your telephone wiring (your extensions should be bridged together in the box outside). You should now be able to plug your fax into the outlet upstairs and your "mother" phone into it, or your fax and phone into seperate outlets. If this is not the case, Comcast has very excelent customer service available at 1 (800) comcast. They apparently do read, if not answer the forums.
There is no "Telephone Out"... THAT would solve all issues and that is why I have a splitter.... So what you seem to be saying is that without the splitter, there is no way for any of the wall jacks to work?
