Hello,
Do you have ADSL internet in your new place? If so you will need an ADSL filter plugged into the phone outlet and plugged into your fax machine. so it would look like phone wall jack--->filter-->fax machine.
ADSL internet creates it own jabber or digital noise in the line and the filter will stop your a analog device from hearing the noise. If you don't have a filter for your phone as well, you should get one. Without filters your ADSL internet will be slower as well. Your ADSL modem should have came with at least 4 filters, if not they can be purchased at your local Bestbuy, staples or computer place. NOTE: Filters only work if you have ADSL or DSL internet.
If you do not have ADSL or DSL internet and still have noise you may have to call your phone service provider to get them to diagnose your line issues. They can fix some noise issues from their end.

I have a (like) phone chord and can't find where to put the other end. We have it plugged into the back of the router, need to know where to plug the other end.


Hi

It depends on which country you are in.

It depends what Broadband wiring setup you have.

It depends which type of cable you are talking about (see images 1 and 2 below)

In some countries, the RJ11 to RJ11 cable goes from this device into the phone Socket of an ADSL filter. One RJ45 to RJ45 cable goes from the Router into the Ethernet Socket of the ADSL Filter. Another RJ45 to RJ45 cable goes from the Router to the Computer. The ADSL Filter then goes into the Phone socket in the wall.

You need an ADSL Filter in every Phone Socket that has a telecommunications device attached to it (Fax Machines, Answering Machines, TV Set Top Boxes, games Consoles etc.). The ADSL filter separates Telehone, Voice & Fax Data traffic from Broadband traffic and allows all to share the same phone line with out conflict.

See Network Diagram below.

In some countiries or wiring setups, the RJ45 to RJ45 cable form the Router to the Wall does not need to go via the Phone Socket and can go directly into its own dedicated Ethernet Wall Socket.

I HAVE LOST THE INSTRUCTIONS TO MY COMMTEL MOD X1 EXTENSION SOCKET AND NEED TO KNOW WHICH COLOUR WIRE GOES WHERE ??? PLEASE HELP


I lost mine too, saw this post, and then they turned up, so here you are:

COMMTEL
Surface Mounted 2/6a Slave Wall Plate - with ADSL Filter

Instructions
  • Remove wall plate back box by removing the two screws on the front face
  • Fix wall plate to skirting board or wall with screws supplied, allowing adequate space for cable entry
  • Insert exisiting telephone wires into screw connections on the ADSL face plate, following cable colour coding according to the list below, and ensure screws are correctly tightened
  • Screw wall plate onto the back box with the screws supplied, ensuring screws are sufficiently tightened
Cable Colour Coding
1. Not Used
2. Blue with white banding
3. Orange with white banding
4. White with orange banding
5. White with blue banding
6. Not Used

Information
  • No need for external filter
  • Surface fitting, replaces existing wallplate
  • Quick set-up
  • With back box

* If more than one phone or fax IS required to run off the same line, simply add more filters where required. Each individual piece of equipment will require a seperate ADSL filter
* Multiple telephone connections, long runs of cable (over 20m) or low quality telephone cable can adverely effect the performance of your connection speed

Safety Information
Before carrying out any electrical work, always switch off at the mains. If in doubt consult a qualified electrician.

It might be worth mentioning that this filter swaps the polarity of the telephone wires: I don't know why. I rewired mine to use it as a master socket, and I have connected the other extensions to the filtered output. This can improve broadband speeds: see

There is a buzzing sound on my end of the phone line, my computer is on DSL and sometimes it disconnects when the phone rings. I've checked the cords and the phone has a new battery.


You have interference due to the DSL overlapping your phone line its usually very common, make sure you have a DSL filter inline with your phone line , if not I would check out the RJ-45 jack in the wall, your phone jack and make sure that there isnt anything wrong with your Jack, you may have to call your phone company and have the phone tech's check out your wall Jack for any interference, they have special phone line meters to measure all this out.

Good luck,

When my phone comes on it kicks me off my internet conection


if you have dial up (meaning your computer physically dials into the internet) you will get kicked off as your phone will try to use the same line as your modem, if you have broadband that uses your phone line you will need ADSL filters, this is a small box with a wire that connects the phone socket in the wall and the plug on the box is where you plug the phone into, if you have many phones or fax machines they will all need these filters. good luck

 Must have DSL filter attached before fax, not sure how you are saying you have it setup, but phone line should come from wall then to filter then to fax socket marked line, phone should be hooked to socket on fax marked EXT, if you dont have dedicated fax line then fax number will be same as phone no.

 

If you have Adsl then there will be a lead from wall that splits into two, one goes to your modem (ADSL) and the other marke phone or line needs to go to fax socket marked LINE

Not receiving faxesBrothers fax-190


The phone line to begin with, can you get a dial tone when you press speaker button? Is it clear?  if no dial tone  then,  Is the phone line from the wall plug into the correct socket of the fax machine ? (it goes into the one marked line, not the ext one).....

next trick would be to plug in a normal phone to wall socket to insure we have dial tone and eliminate it being a telstra fault,

 

 Could also be wise to check filter is installed on that line if we have recently installed ADSL Broadband.
