modem rings phone

  tb1148 17:06 07 Mar 04

As soon as I connect a new cable from the phone socket to the modem the phone starts squawking/ shrieking. Only have 2 phones on the same circuit so I should not have exceeded the REN limit

Any ideas on the cause?

Use a different cable. Make sure its a modem cable and not one designed to connect to a phone as they are wired differently.

Are you using the one that came with the modem?

I have a Rockwell RS56 that does this. I put it down to a hardware fault.

If you fix the problem, please let me know how.

It happened to a son of mine when he put an extra phone point in, and somewhere confused which wire to bury in which clip. Swopping a pair made things normal again.

If it rings the phone it's the wrong cable. There are two wire and four wire cables. Find out which one yours is and change it to the other one.
