Xfinity voice wiring diagram

How are the voice features of the modem/router installed.  Does the phone signal come on the coax line to the router and then you attach a telephone cable to the wall phone outlet to feed all the other phones in the house and a wireless base unit?   Or does the phone signal come from the outside telephone box into the router?   Please explain.  ( I thought the coax cable handled the TV, Internet and phone signals but I may be wrong and need this explained further).   Thank you.

Thank you for the  quick reply.   You used the same words as I typed. 

 

So to make it clear - the coax cable brings into the house the TV, Internet and voice signals.  The router than allows the TV to get the signal, the Internet can be direct connect or wireless and the router sends the phone signal to anything - phone or base wireless system out by the phone cable attached to LINE 1.  Correct?

No not even close. Signal comes in through cable. Split to different equipment depending on services. Cable to cable boxes for video services. Cable to the modem/gateway. The gateway has dual internet/phone capability. Built in router for internet and phone ports for phone service. At that point you either have a phone plugged into the gateway or backfeed with a phone cord to a phone jack
