I have a bunch of old Meridien 2616D stations and needed another phone at home. Brought one from my office but it won't work on my home phone line when I plug the jack in. I know that the outlet has dial tone to it because I use it for my home fax machine.
Any suggestions on how to get it to work? I didn't want to have to go buy another phone.
Re: connect the Meridien 2616D to my home phone line
It wont ever work.this is a nortel proprietary telephone and will only work on the nortel products. there is also issues with voltages etc.you are lucky if you have not damaged the ptt end of your home line remove it as quickly as you can...hope this helps

When they test a line from the exchange, they only test is the line is free and if there is no reflexion of the signal. Only when they com into the house and they test the point here the cable is coming in, then you can be sure the line is working to that point.
Then the only thing you are responsible for is the wires in house.
You can check the line to, by connecting an old phone on the wires coming in you're house. When you hear a dial tone the line should be correct. Then you should be able to setup the phones one by one.
Connect the base station to the mains and the phone line. Then tr to make contact with the handset to the basestation. You even should be capable of setting up a contact between the two phones.
When that works, I still think the line is not connected correct to the base station, or in house your cable has a defect.
Try these first and let me know Intercom does not function correctly • Make sure line 1 is connected properly and common to all phones on the system. • Make sure all phone ID’s (station numbers) involved have been assigned. Transfer does not function correctly • Make sure receiver phones (stations) have same line connected. Intercom indicator turns red and green alternately • The station address needs to be re-assigned due to a duplicate station address in the system. See “Changing the Phone ID (Station Address)”. Good luck, Lee
So you want to connect your Play-Station to 5.1 surround sound speakers through a motherboard, so you can get sound from the Play-Station through the speakers while playing on your LCD TV (LED is something completely different)
You need to get a very specific type of Sound Card to do that. I would recommend the Creative Sound-Blaster X-FI it is relativity old now, so it will be quite cheap you could get it for about 60 pounds. It is a PCIE card and comes with an external connection box and External Creative X-FI USB sound card dongle thingy.
I would recommend some bettor speakers for this as well as you get 3D crystal sound automatically, unless you turn the settings off. There are options in the EQ for just about every music type and every environment you can think off. Best of all it comes with a remote control. The sound from the Play-Station goes in to the connection box and the sound out from the conection box goes to the TV. There are 6 Audio in 9 audio out on the connection box and a bunch of other connection ports for various things. MIDI, small jack connectors large jack connectors, I-pod connector wireless expansion port, Ethernet port, Fiber optic ports x2, component audio, scart and a bunch that I don't eaven know what they do. ,
You need to make sure that you have an ADSL line filter connected before any home telephone or DECT base station (eg. a filter is required on the line between your physical telephone device and phone socket). This can also be achieved via a central ADSL phone line splitter.
---------- ADSL Filter -----> Telephone Handset 1 or DECT base station <--- main telephone line --/ \-----------------------------------> ADSL Modem/Router ---> Computer \----------ADSL Filter -----> Telephone Handset 2
you may have had a lighting strike to the phone line causing a surg to your unit. it may be fried. try completly powering down the system and powering it back up, then try to send a signal to your monitoring station. also you my have your monitorimg station try and connect to your system and check the programing it may have been scrambled.
You don't need to connect your netgear, you have only to connect your computer to the 2Wire (is wireless also) - If your computer ins not wireless Only you have to do is insert a wireless PCI card in your computer or and USB wireless device and connect to the 2Wire Wireless Router
An "Optipoint 500" phone can not be used at home!
It is a digital phone, specifically designed for Siemens digital phone systems. Do not plug it in at home. That could damage the phone or may knock your phone line off.
However you can use a "Optipoint 500 IP" phone at home for voice over IP calls. But this would be connected into your broadband router and would connect via the web to your companys Siemens phone system.
