# Phone connection for Lucent 854

I purchased a Lucent 854 to use at work. When I got it I realized it is set up to connect to 4 separate lines. What we have at work in 1 phone jack that has 3 separate lines in it. How can I hook up the Lucent phone to this and make it work? Do I have to separate the 3 lines then connect to the Lucent? Please email me at rjtazski@yahoo.com with any help you can give.
Sincerely
Robert

On the new lucent phone, you should have a connection on the back of the phone for Line 1/2 and line 3/4.
You should be able to plug the line cord from your jack into line 1/2 and those 2 lines should work . to get the 3rd line working, you will have to put line 3 on a second jack and plug that into Line 3/4. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR LINE CORD FROM THE WALL TO THE PHONE HAS 4 GOLD PENS ON THE PLUG.
The 2 inside pens on the plug is line 1 and the 2 outside pens are line 2.

Hope this helps.

You can get a splitter for it which will then divide that one phone jack into 3 out or 4 out which ever you need. the only problem that you might run into is how close the phones might be to each other. Otherwise there isn't much other ways around it with only one phone jack.

### I have a 854 AT&T 4 LINE PHONE SYSTEM IT WORKED GREAT UNTIL I changed providers i switched fro Verizon to Comcast now when I pick up or answer a call the lights appear only on that phone the other...

If the Comcast people changed the equipment in the phone room they probably ran direct lines to each phone or put filters in the lines. The reason you're not seeing the lines light up is the phones are not wired correctly now. The cable box that all of your lines are coming from must have a 1 to multiple line adaptor for each line. The adaptor feeds all of the phones. Communication for the intercom and the line in use lights goes down the phone lines so ther has to be a direct connection between all of the phones. If there are filters in the lines they must be put between the cable box and the line splitter. You can get the line splitters at Radio Shack (Model 279-435 for 1 to 3 adaptor).

### AT&T Model 854 4 line phone, turn off unused line lights

It's a matter of cabling.

Make sure that only the line you wish to use is connected.

If all of the lines are cabled with two to four line cable, then reduce the cabling to a single red/black combination on the one line.
