Question about Phones
We get a dial tone on the intercom calls, but none on the outgoing calls. We can dial numbers and they all connect, but there is no audio transmitted either way. Both sides have a DSL connection
First disconnect the phone and the telephone line for about 10 minutes to allow for the memory to clear. Then press the "store in" button once and then press a storage button repeatedly until the light stays on constantly. You should have a dial tone after that

unplug everthing from all jacks in the house. call your # a couple of times. if the line rings, plug everything in 1 at a time, but call again after each hook up. if the line goes dead or is busy, that phone you just plugged in is the problem. [ a short in the phone, computer, answer machine, or any piece of equipment plugged into the phone line.] if the line is busy when everything is unplugged, call your phone company. there maybe a problem with your inside wire.there also maybe a box [called a nid] inside your basment/garage or on the side of your house, where you can plug your phone directly in, bypassing all the jacks in your house
hope this helps.

I bit the bullet and canceled my landline! I did so without an internet back-up though. I HAD an appointment with comcast so I could stay online, but I canceled it. The reason being, my wifi is still working fine! I'm scared to shut my modem off, for fear I will lose this gift from the Cyber Gods!! I bought myself a "magic jack",it was even mispriced $19.99. I hooked it up, instant landline & fax too! ALL FREE!! Does anyone have a clue how/why I still get the internet? Has anyone ever shut there modem off? If so, did you keep your internet? I NEVER have good luck, I MEAN NEVER. So, after so many years of paying for all these over priced, some would even argue, unessary this day & age,monthly pain in the wallet things. Im done! At least I pray to the Cyber Gods that I am! Im knocking on wood as I type!

I bet the problem is that you used to have two phone lines and now you only have one line. You cannot program an extension into one of these phones unless both Line1 and Line2 coming into the phone are working- it will act as if the extension you picked is in use, but the actual thing it is complaining about is that Line2 isn't working. The phones might have been working for years on a single phone line as long as they didn't lose power. But you don't have to throw the phones away just because you gave up your second phone line, you can still make them work. (I did it for a 12 phone system.) The way to to it: make a special cable that connects your single incoming phone line to both L1 and L2 on the phone, tricking the phone into thinking both L1 and L2 are working. Then program the extensions into the phones, and go back to using a normal cable so that only Line1 is hooked up. To make this cable: take a normal male to male cable and cut off one end. Then connect both the black and the green wires of the cut end of your cable to the green post in a standard phone jack (the kind you would surface mount on the wall will work best), and connect both the yellow and red wires to the red post inside the surface mount phone jack. Now you have an "extension cable" that takes your one incoming line to both L1 and L2 on the phone: Now plug your incoming phone wire into the phone jack, and plug the wire you connected into the jack into the back of your phone. The phone is probably already blinking red on the intercom, just push the extension number you want it to have, making sure there are no conflicting extensions already in use.
I would reconnect the phone using a normal line so that only Line 1 is "hot", don't leave it on this double-connected cable any longer than you need to in order to program the extension.
