I have voip phone service from xfinity. I currently have a cable connecting my xfinity modem to a single phone. My home is wired with a landline home phone network (4 wire telephone cable, rj11 connectors). Is it possible to connect this landline network to the phone service I receive from xfinity and thereby be able to connect phones at various locations on the landline phone network? How do I do it? Can I connect the phone network to a router switch (rj11 at one end, rj45 at the other)? What does the wiring look like?

Yes, I have a phone jack near the modem and it is part of the wired phone network. But I don't know how to use it to connect xfinity phone service to my wired home phone network. I thought the answer may be to connect the wired phone network to my router switch. If that is correct I need help help making a cable going from rj11 to rj45.

That should allow any phone plugged in to any jack in the house to work. If you have a phone in the room where the gateway is located and only 1 phone jack there, you'll need some sort of phone wiring "Y" connector for that.
