L75 vs DSL phone line

My L75 quit working when I switch my phone line to a digital one through internet.
Then I hooked it to another line that carries my DSL. It started working intermittently and when it does, it’s extremely slow. I wonder if it’s a compatibility issue or the machine itself became damaged after hooking it with the digital line first time.

Fax machines are ANALOG devices designed to work with POTS (plain old telephone system).

Sometimes you can get away with a fax or two w/digital lines, but the machine will be very unreliable.

I don't think there is any damage as the machines have voltage limiter circuits built in. [except for lightning]

Why is caller id not working on phone after switching to AT&T uverse internet and phone?


Do they offer caller ID with that type of service? If so they should be able to fix that for you. You are now VOIP and not real sure how caller ID works behind that. There is a data burst sent after 1 ring on regular telephone service..

When my phone rings the kids get booted off xbox live and i have wireless internet and wireless adapter for xbox360


Hi Jeannie,

Based on your problem I assume that you have DSL. When you get hooked up for DSL they send filters that you are supposed to put between EVERY phone and the jack. (Don't forget phone lines for satellite and alarm systems).

If your dsl drops every time the phone rings, there are usually 2 things that cause this.

1) A bad filter in your house. If a filter is bad or missing it can cause the dsl to drop either when the phone rings or if someone picks up the phone with the bad filter.

2) The other reason could be on your ISP's side. It's called a POTS splitter. You have one of these if you have BOTH phone and DSL. It's what sort of combines the 2 together. There are a number of problems that can occur with a bad pots splitter. i.e. DSL works - phone totally dead, Phone works-dsl - totally dead, disconnects, etc...

I suggest that you hook up the dsl modem by itself. DISCONNECT ALL PHONES IN THE HOUSE. Do NOT have anything connected at all except the dsl modem. No filters, phones, directv, digital cable, or anything else in a phone jack. Then when you are up and surfing, take your cell phone and call your house. Technically it should just ring and ring. Unless you have voice mail in which case it will go to voice mail after so many rings. Anyway, see if when the line is ringing in your cell phone if it is dropping you off. If it DOESN'T, then it's probably one of the filters, jacks, or wiring. If it still disconnects, it's probably the POTS splitter with your ISP.

Good luck and if this helped please help me out and leave feedback!

Thanks!

Can the microsoft MN700 Router be used with cable internet instead of DSL from the phone company?I switched from Verizon DSL to Comcast Cable internet but can not find an answer if the MN700 is compatible...


I would say yes but i have not tested it personaly, but what i know about routers it should work with. Cable internet and dsl are exactly the same thing. The only difference is how its delivered to your house and the speed of it.

DSL tands for "Digital Subscriber Line." It is medium for transferring data over regular phone lines and can be used to connect to the Internet

cable the same thing except it is internet though the cable line. you u run the out of your

you probably wont even have to change any settings on it either. the line out of the back of your cable modem will plug into the same spot the old cable ran to when you just had dsl.

if this has been helpful please mark it has fixya. also please rate me, and if you have found it very helpful or informative please recommend me.

Just connected router to clear network modem and VoIP (wireless phone service), now when the phone ring, it disconnects me from the internet and the connection is lost until the phone call is complete.


Is your modem a DSL or cable modem?
If it is a DSL modem do you have a DSL filter on each phone line to the phones in your house?
The DSL modem does not need a DSL filter on the phone line.

I've changed my internet providers and have gone from a cable internet svc to a dsl phone line provider. Now my computer fax machine says it is offline. Is there a setting that I need to change?


Most likely cause is you don't have a dsl filter on your fax line. Without the filter, your fax machine's modem can't discern between a dsl signal and a telephone signal Since the telephone line coming into the building is now carrying a dsl signal, a filter is necessary to receive/send faxes.

No line or dail tone but dsl is working


try unplaging the dsl modem from the phone jack and plug in a known good phone and see if you have dial tone there if you do you may have a bad filter someplace.if not unplug everything else that is plugged into a phone jack in the house and try again with a known good phone.The dsl will work with a minor short on the line,like a phone off hook.

I have a Qwest Actiontec modem that has worked fine until today. Now the DSL light is blinking and the Internet light does not come on. I have rebooted, but no fix. thanks!


If the DSL light is blinking it means that there is no DSL carrier signal to your modem. Check the phone line and make sure you have no open lines and filters are on all the devices hooked up to your phone system except your modem. You can check for an open line by hooking up a phone to the phone line going into your modem and listen for a dial tone.

Hooking up mx310 all in one


The phone line should plug directly into the Line plug on the DSL modem and the all-in-one should plug into the Phone plug next to it. If you need to split the line do it AFTER the line comes out of the Phone plug.

I can't hook up the way it says to


Fax machines need an RJ-11 phone cord and are ANALOG

DSL uses RJ-45 and is DIGITAL.

Don't waste your money on a DSL filter, they won't work reliably.

Lexmark x6150 unalbe to fax phone line is active using dsl


Hey Tony - Did you recently hook this up to the DSL for the first time? This unit is supposedly not able to work with a DSL line.

The fax modem in your AIO is an analog device and cannot be used on an ISDN, DSL, or PBX digital phone service. However, you can connect certain devices to your AIO that let you use the fax function in addition to these digital phone services.

To connect without an unsupported line:
Connect an active telephone cable from the AIO to the telephone wall jack.

To connect with an unsupported line:
If you use an ISDN phone service, you can connect to an analog telephone port (an R-interface port) on an ISDN terminal adapter.
For more help and to request an R-interface port, contact the ISDN provider.
If you use a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) phone service, you can connect to a DSL filter or router that will allow for some analog (rather than digital) use.
If you use a PBX phone service, you can install an analog phone line for a fax machine.

If this was working on the DSL let me know. I don't know the location but obviously a separate phone jack is the easiest. Let me know. If this helps you fix it you can rate this as fixed. If you are just going to rate this as helpful I'd rather you please not rate it and just add a comment and say thanks for the info.
If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks.
