take a coaxial cable and cut on of the ends off, throw the severed end away and strip the insulation of the coaxial cable (only strip about 3 inches of it away.

2
seperate the coper (or sliver wire) from the wire center wire and twist toeghter to make a neat wire

3
strip some of the insulation away from the white center post revealing the coper wire inside

4
cut end off phone cable and take about 4 inched of insulation away

5
connect the green wire of the phone cable to the copper outter most wire of the coaxial cable and tape it so that there isnt any of the outer most wire showing

I have an HP 2510 printer. I cannot use it to fax because once I plug the phone jack into the printer I get a busy signal. If I plug the jack into a phone, it works fine. How do I get the printer to...


Hi irwinbadin,

HP fax products are designed so that other telephone equipment can be connected on the same line as the fax. The unit must be connected first using a two-conductor fax/phone cable like the one that shipped with the HP product. Using a four-conductor telephone cable may cause problems receiving faxes or calls.

There are two different types of phone cables. There are two-conductor phone cables like what originally shipped with the HP fax product and there are four-conductor cables. HP fax products are designed to work with a two-conductor phone cable. Look at the end of the cable and verify that it has only two copper leads or wires. Replace any four-conductor cables with a two-conductor cable. Only two-conductor phone cables should be used to connect the all-in-one to the phone line.

Figure 1: The difference between a two-conductor phone cable and a four-conductor phone cable

Step one: Connect the phone line to the fax
The fax will have two or three sockets (or jacks) for phone lines. Some of these may have a removable plastic plug in them. These sockets will be labeled with text, To Wall Jack , or with a graphic of the wall jack. See Figure 1 below.

Plug the two-conductor telephone cable that came with the HP product into the telephone wall jack. Then, plug it into this socket as shown below.

reyjoshua07_6.jpg


In areas with above ground telephone lines and electrical storms (lightning), it is a good idea to purchase a telephone line surge suppressor and connect it between the telephone wall jack and the fax. This will help prevent damage to the fax from a lightning-caused power surge on the phone line.

Step two: Add other phone-line devices
To connect other telephone devices, use the other socket (or sockets) on the fax. These are identified by text or with a graphic of a telephone and/or computer.

Connect a caller ID unit between the fax and the telephone.
Use the information below that matches the devices you need to connect.

Fax and telephone
Connect a single-line telephone to one of the added sockets on the fax. The telephone will share the same phone line as the fax. See the illustration below.

Fax, answering machine, and telephone
When a telephone answering machine and telephone are connected, connect the answering machine to the fax and then connect the telephone to the answering machine as shown below.

Fax and computer modem
To use a fax and a computer modem on the same phone line, connect the fax to the computer modem. The modem socket on the computer may be labeled Line or Wall jack .

Fax, computer modem, and telephone
To use a computer modem and a telephone with the fax, connect the computer modem to the fax. Then, connect the telephone into the second phone line connector on the computer modem or the third fax socket (if it is available). The image below shows how to connect a computer and a telephone to a fax with two sockets.

Fax, modem, answering machine, and telephone
The image below shows how to connect a computer modem, answering machine, and telephone to a fax. Connect the computer modem to the fax, then connect the answering machine to the computer, and finally, connect the telephone to the answering machine.
If the fax has three phone line sockets instead of two, some of the devices can be connected to the other phone socket on the fax.

I've recently switched to charter as my providerand they installeda modem ( sbv51220) which works fine, but the monthly charge of five dollars irks me. I bought another modem from Bestbuy at the urging of...


Do you have phone service with Charter as well? If so the modem you have been provided is made to run both the phone service and the internet. If you purchased your own modem from best buy the phone portion would not be present so that is why those connections are not on the new one.

To cut to the point the new modem will work just fine for you internet but bear in mind it will now require another splitter for the coax cable line and each time that you add a splitter you will loose a portion of the incoming signal and this may affect your services.

Thanks,
Robert

I found my computer cable modem. the tip is green on the cable out. Is this the modem cable the right cable?


not all modem setup are all the same. However, you should see an Ethernet port, a power cord port, and a phone cable port at the back of the modem.

You connect the modem to the computer using the ethernet port (biggest port), then connect the modem to the phone line via the phone line port and power cord to power.

Hope that works,
Regards.

Phone line juction connection?


FIrst of all, you don't change the line from the pedestal to the trailer. It's not your cable and it doesn't matter. Dial tone comes in on that cable and it works just fine. It's also the feed to your DSL modem, based on high frequency and not data.

If you're trying to feed different dial tone to 4 phone jacks, you need to find a way to unsplice the cables. In truth, all you have to do is find the main feed from outside, wire it to the DSL modem, and backfeed the 3 other cables with the dial tone from the Vonage or whatever ATA. This backfeed will run on any cable and does not need to be Cat 5e.

If you're trying to run network cables, then you need to run a new cable and connect it to a router or switch at some central location. Those cables need to be 5e.

How do I hook up my acer aspire to my existing phone line modem? I know there is an ethernet cable that goes to the Aspire but I need something that fits the phone jack also. Is there an adapter?


Hello, I regret to inform you that you cannot connect a phone line directly into an ethernet port. The phone line is an analog signal and requires a modem to convert it to a digital signal the computer can understand.

Yes i want to find out if a cable modem will work with your dsl phone internet service?


No.

A cable-modem connects with a coax-cable to the cable-company's network, but a DSL-modem connects with telephone-cable to the telephone-company's network.

Modem connection


Your modem should have a RJ11 (phone) jack and a RJ45 (ethernet) jack. Phone line-in to modem RJ11. Ethernet cable from RJ45 to modem to router; maybe labeled WAN or modem port . Ethernet from any of the switch ports (or the only one avail, depending on your model) to you pc if it has a ethernet card in it. After that it's all up to the configuration.
