2 line phone hookup
Sorry if this comes up twice, but I hadn't logged in and I don't think it posted.
Here's my situation; I'm coming off uverse and have switched to Spectrum tv, internet, and voice.
I have a 2 line base station phone and am paying for two lines.
WIth Uverse, I used one phone cord to connect to the 1/2 port on the back of my phone.
My Spectrum modem (Arris 1602a) has the two line ports labeled 1 and 2 respectively, but no 1/2 port. As it stands now I have to connect to phone cords from the modem to my phone instead of just the one that I was previously using. The tech tried to put a little adapter on it to combine the 2 out ports on the modem but it didn't work.
As it stands now, I had to move the base station for the phone into the room with the modem so that I could attach a cable to each line, but this is not an optimal solution.
So I have 3 questions;
1. Will I be forced to run another phone cable into the room that I need to have the base station in?
2. Is there some kind of adapter I can use to combine the ports on the modem into a single cable?
3. Should I have received a different modem with a 1/2 port on it?
