It sounds like you have the wires hooked up wrong. Check both ends of the wire.

Fax problem


I want to make sure I understand this completely. You get no dial tone from the fax machine when hooked up to VOIP. In the past, was there an audible dial tone from the fax, or did it just dial silently and give you an error if there was no tone? When you said you got a dial tone by connecting a phone to the ext phone port of "the machine" did you mean the fax machine? If you get a dial tone by running a phone through the fax machine, then the line is good. I have used a fax machine over Sunrocket before they went defunct, which used the same technology base as Vonage - so it should work. If you used to get an audible dial tone when using the fax, and no longer do, and you are geting a dial tone on a regular phone that is connected to the ext. port of the fax machine, then the problem has to be in the fax machine itself, not the VOIP. If you can verify that, we can go from there.

Will not dial out on pulse on one line, works on second line


try changing phone to tone dialing . one phone line has been setup for Decadic dialing and the other line may be setup for tone dialing.
If tone dialing is working on one line but not the other then get phone company to change the dialing type on the phone line.
Dual tone multi frequency is the technical name for tone dialing and is more efficient than decadic dialing or pulse dialing.

How to keep gravel driveway from eroding


Yes sand and cement mixed with the gravel.

Another thing you can use is 'cold planings', (that is what it is called in the UK) and is what they skim off the top of the road when they are resurfacing. You will find it in various locations. Ask your local Roads Department.


Or you could use your gravel as a base, have it rolled and then asphalted (tarmacked).

No dial tone pressing hook, NG and Poor line condition transmission report on sending and receiving. Confirmed good dial tone on line in and on phone on ext. Copy, display, everything else fine. I hear...


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

Phone won't transfer to next free line when a second call comes


If you are not getting a dial tone then something is holding the line off hook. Disconnect any other device you have on your lines and check to see if you get your dial tone back. If you still have no dial tone unplug each phone and check again. You may have to disconnect everything for a minute or two so the phone company will reset its equipment. Plug in your phones one at a time and check your dial tone every time you add something new.

If you add something and you loose your dial tone immediately you may have a crossed connection in the wall socket, any splitters or in the phone plug. Check to make sure all of the wires in those sockets are straight before you plug in your phone wire.

If you add your CC machine and everything is good but it fails after you run a transaction you will have to contact the supplier of your CC machine. It is not hanging up the line.

Will not dial out on landline in the tone mode but


There's something wrong with the base unit that connects to the phone line. It's not sending any audio to the phone line, which would explain why tone dialing doesn't work and people can't hear you. (Pulse dialing doesn't need the audio tones so it will still work.)

I've never run across one doing this before. The problem is almost certainly some electronic failure, and I doubt there's anything you can do other than replacing the thing. If this is still under any warranty it should be up to the manufacturer to repair or replace it. If you got this from VoIP service provider, contact their customer service department.
