I am in desperate need of some help:
After waiting 2 months for dsl, I have finally received it... but the problem is that I have two lines at my house. All of my phone jacks are "multiline" - that is, both lines (both phone numbers) come from the same phone jack. On my phones, I just press the Line 1 button, and I can access line 1, or line 2 button for line 2.
But, when I plug in the dsl modem, BOTH LINES BECOME ACTIVE, and when I pick up the phone, the lines are criss crossed, and I can hear both lines. If I dial a number, both lines are used....
*My problem is this:
How do I split the lines? How can I wire it so that from the one multiline jack, I can split Line 1 to attach to the modem, and attach Line 2 to a phone.
I appreciate it if anyone can help me out... Please be descriptive in your responses, since I do not know much about phone lines / circuitry...
Thank you )
