The DSL Filter is only needed if you have a telephone and DSL service coming through on the same line. You are using Comcast digital voice, are you using them for cable internet as well?

I presume you are. then I would say you dont need the filters.
If you still have DSL and home phone then use the filters on the phone

Why is there not a DSL filter with the vtech phone I just purchased?


Because not everyone needs a DSL filter.
Some (most?) of us do not use DSL.

Your DSL Service Provider can obtain for you the filters
that you may require as a part of his / DSL service.

Good luck!

Vtech model 2656 caller id is not working. How can I fix this?


Hello,

Found this on the VTECH support site regarding your model:

Tip 1 of 1
spacer.gif
Caller ID and Call Waiting ID are subscription services, available from most local telephone service providers. You must subscribe to these services in order for the features to work on your phone. Contact your local telephone service provider for more information.

In addition, your caller must be calling from an area that supports caller ID.

Both you and your caller’s telephone service provider must use compatible caller ID systems.

If you subscribe to DSL service for this telephone line, DSL filters must be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. The DSL signal can cause caller ID disruption, static, noise and other issues on your line. DSL filters block the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted to the telephone. If you are not using the DSL filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly caller id issues on your phones.

In most cases, we recommend you connect the plug end of the DSL filter into the telephone jack, then connect a telephone cord between the filter and your phone.

Please contact your service provider to obtain DSL filters and installation information.

Caller ID and Call Waiting ID may not be available for every call. Common reasons are incompatibilities between your and your caller’s service, transmission errors and answering calls before the ID data is received.

In addition if you would like to contact them or get more info on your phone, then use this link:

Cordless phone has volume problems with DSL


For starters that dsl modem should not be filtered.
You should place the splitter directly into the wall jack and place the filter on the side used for the phone. The side feeding the dsl line should not be filtered.
The filter serves 2 purposes. 1 it reduces data noise interference onto the voice line. 2 it prevents dsl interference from voice such as picking up and hanging up the receiver.

Phones will not release hold when picking up on a different phone


Make sure you have filters on the lines between your DSL and your phones. Use the line out from the back of your modem to split to your phones if you don't have any filters. You may have to take line 2 from the back of the DSL modem to send to all of the phones. This is usually a filtered source and should isolate your phones from the DSL. Put the filter on any other devices that are sharing line 2 too, fax, computer, credit card machine etc.

My phone has been out for some time. Just noise on my phone. the outside plug in works fine, so I assume it is my inside wiring. This morning I unplugged all my phones, and hooked them up one by one. ...


Replace the DSL filter. it is needed to in order to prevent interference between phones and DSL service operating on the same line. Without the installation of DSL filters, high-frequency signals or echoes from analog devices can result in reduced performance and connection problems with DSL service, and the high-frequency signals from the DSL service can result in line noise and other issues for analog devices.

DSL line. Possible that filters are not plugged in. When DSL service is being used on your line, filters must be installed at every jack that is in use. The DSL signal can cause static/noise, squealing (similar to fax tones) and other issues on your line. (ex. Caller ID problems). In order to avoid having this issue, the service provider gives DSL filters to all customers when they sign up for service. These microfilters must be used because they allow your phones to work properly by blocking the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted through the telephones. DSL filters should be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. If you are not using the filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly Caller ID issues on your phones that are plugged into jacks without filters. Please contact your service provider for filter information and proper installation. Interference: Other 2.4 GHz products. Other products that use the 2.4 GHz band can interfere with the use of this phone. Items include: Radio towers, pager towers, cell phones, other 2.4GHz cordless phones and 2.4 GHz intercoms or monitors. If any of these items are in the area, they can interfere with the performance of this phone; try relocating the phone. Other 5.8 GHz products. Other products that use the 5.8 GHz band such as home networking (wireless modems) other 5.8 GHz cordless products (phones etc.) can interfere with the use of this phone. Try relocating the phone. Interference from microwave. Microwaves work on the same frequencies as the 2.4 GHz phones. If the unit is on when the microwave is running, it is normal to experience static at that time. Do not plug this phone in the same outlet or near the microwave. Environmental. Normal radio operation. There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the problem only occurs in certain areas of your environment, there is nothing wrong with the phone. Try channing channels. Surge protector or modem. Unplug modem or surge protector that is connected to the unit. Building structure limits range. Relocate telephone base near window when using telephone outside. Base unit located in basement or other low area. Relocate telephone base to higher location. The unit will get better reception if it is not located in a low area. Video displays, television sets and personal computers may cause interference. Video displays, television sets and personal computers can cause interference on this phone. Please relocate the phone to an AC outlet were there is no major appliance plugged in. If the base is near any of the above mentioned, locate the base to another room. Possible telephone line/service problem. Try using your equipment at a different location (i.e. friend or neighbors). If the unit functions properly in the new location, contact your local telephone company for assistance; additional charges to be incurred by customer may apply.
