My handset on the display window is flashing "base" i cannot use my landline even though my landline is connected because my internet is working
You didn't include the name and model of your phone - so I can only offer generic help with this problem. Typically, when a cordless phone handset indicates "base" it means that it has lost its link with the radio in the base unit. You should simply place the handset in the base charger for a few seconds and the handset will re-establish a link with the base. The loss of link can happen if you separate the two too far from each other or if the battery drains to deeply. If you still have problems, please provide the name and model of the phone system you have.
Lastly, you can lose phone service even if your internet is still working. Many cable systems use dedicated cables for phone service that are independent of the TV signals and internet. DSL from your phone company is a separate service that is "piggy-backed" on the wire with dial tone. These services can have one service working even if the other has failed. If you have VOIP service however, this would NOT apply as VOIP is dependent on internet connectivity only.
If this was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!
