Connect phone line to another phone line

Hi,

 

I actually have 2 phone lines at my place, one in the bedroom and another one in the living room.

I have adsl only on the bedroom and would like to be able to connect my modem in the living room instead of the bedroom (I alreadyy tried, it didn't work).

So my question is, how can I connect my bedroom line to the living one?

Should I call someone for that ?

 

Thanks

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: Connect phone line to another phone line

there is no way you can possibly connect 2 modems together. the only way you could do it is if you either get a Wireless Modem/Router for bedroom or theres a kit you can by from like **bleep** smiths or any electrical shop that you just lug ethernet from modem in to it and plug it into power. then with the other end. plug it in to power wherever then run ethernet to either a computer or into router. more distance that way.

Oh no I don't want actually connect 2 modems together, I just want to move the modem from the bedroom to the living room. There is a phone line in the living but apparently only bedroom's one is activated. I could connect a long phone cable from the bedroom to the living through the corridor but....it will be the last solution.

Sorry for the misunderstanding

Re: Connect phone line to another phone line

Do you know if they are seperate phone lines or if the socket in the living room is part of the same line?

 

Do you get a dial tone on it or does the WAN light/Link light come on? what colour is it and is it flashing?

Is there any way to know that without any phone? I would say they are separate lines because for me it makes sense but now I'm not sure.

Yes the WAN network works, it's about internet connection, it's never come in.
