I have today set up my broadband modem with no problems. Internet connection is fine,but, Ican't use the phone. I have installed the splitters for both modem and phone. for incoming calls the phone rings once but the line is dead. for outgoing calls there is no dialling tone. Can anyone help?

Use the tutorial Here and check that your wiring agrees with the ilustrations given.

Thanks for the advice. I have checked all connections and everything seems to be correct. Further experimenting suggests that I have two faulty splitters. I have raised this possibility with Support.

Hi it could be filters, how many items have you got connected to your phone line? as you might be exceeding your REN value as well.
