This entire time I thought you had the base station plugged directly into the back of the ATA.

Did you disconnect the old service from your internal phone sockets? Typically this would be at the DMARC box from bell (mine is a black box on the wall in my basement where their lines come in, but I am sure they have other types). If it's still connected to the Bell network, this could be why you are getting issues. Basically you need to make sure that your internal wiring isn't connected to anything outside of your house.


Yes.

Visit http://forum.fongo.com/viewtopic.php?f= ... 58&p=73292.

This is the important part: when you find the demarc, you need to disconnect your former phone company's line. The electricity from the phone line could damage your Fongo Home Phone Adapter, even if you don't hear a dial tone on it.

If you don't disconnect the Telco's line at the demarc, you run the risk of frying your ATA.
