We have moved into a new home and we have some trouble with one phone jack. Upstairs, all jacks are working. Downstairs, we have only phone jack in the kitchen which is not working!! I called Verizon, our phone company, and they charge $95 to rewire/install 1st jack and $53 for the 2nd one ( these things are not covered by maintenance plans). It looks enpensive to me, so if possible for somebody to help me with some advice so I can do it myself? It looks that the colors are linked the same as the other jacks from upstairs, but the one in the kitchen doesn't have dial tone. Also, there may be a chance that the previous owner had 2 phone lines in the house..Also, if somebody knows where the DEMARC BOX is? How to find it?

Thank you.
