Basic Faxline Install by tech or self

I currently have phone service with Comcast now, If I want to add a plain vanilla second line for faxing only does this require a tech visit or can it be done over the phone. I live in the Chicago Area.

Re: Basic Faxline Install by tech or self

You do not need a tech visit for a 2nd line unless you need help getting the wiring connected to the fax machine.  If you need wiring changes to the the second line to the jack for the fax, then you can hire Comcast or another local tech that does low voltage wiring.

 

If you are putting the fax next to the eMTA, you only need to plug it in the L2 jack.

 

Just adding a 2nd line with a new number can be done over the phone, and  the L2 jack would be activated.
