Question about Cisco (VG248) Gateway

Intermittent On/Off hook condition on single line phones on VG248

We have modems and single line phones hooked to the VG248. The modems function normally but the phones go off hook on their own and can interfere with incoming calls. This indicates it is a real off hook condition at the VG248 and the phones work fine when hung off a Nortel 81c. Is it possibly a voltage problem with the phones since these are using caller ID screens?

Most newer fax machine seem to short line 1 and 2 together and this will cause a VOIP modem "called an eMTA" to go off hook. Your fax machine should have come with a phone jumper that has only a single line "2 wires inside it", you should be able to use that jumper to attach your fax machine to your house phone wiring. If you use a standard phone line jumper it has both lines "4 wires" and can cause your eMTA modem to go off hook which could be why it was disconnected.

Hello,

Make sure that you have your telephone line from the wall jack plugged into the port on the fax that says "LINE" and that your telephone is plugged into EXT.

All your cables and jacks seem like they are working since your phone gets a dial tone, the onyl thing could be that the wires are mixed or the modem on the fax is broken.

Thanks,

Pat

Just connected router to clear network modem and VoIP (wireless phone service), now when the phone ring, it disconnects me from the internet and the connection is lost until the phone call is complete.


Is your modem a DSL or cable modem?
If it is a DSL modem do you have a DSL filter on each phone line to the phones in your house?
The DSL modem does not need a DSL filter on the phone line.

CAN'T GET FAX WORKING.


If it's answering on your main number, then you are not plugged into the fax jack. You should have a separate phone jack for fax. If you have internet phone there should be a second jack on the back of your phone box. You can test that you have a functioning second line by plugging the fax into it and using the fax unit to dial your home number.

Hi Brenda,

Your All In One wants a phone line hooked directly to it. It won't fax without a "POTS" line directly hooked to it. POTS stands for "Plain Old Telephone Service" which is the line with good old dial tone on it.

Intermittent ring and now fading display


You may have the problem fixed by now; but I had the same thing happen to me with the same phone and also hooking up to a voip type phone connection. The person installing it hooked it from the modem straight to the phone. He didn’t know why and when he left I still had the problem. The problem being the phone would not ring. After thinking about it I decided to hook the modem phone line to my house phone wiring and then hook the phone to the phone house wiring. It worked and I am not sure why but I think that the house phone wiring is grounded and that makes more voltage for the ringer
