I recieved a Comcast modem for my landline phone but there are no instructions on how to set it up. Does it go into the wall jack? I do not have a computer-just the cable tv. Assuming you got the modem directly from Comcast, connect the coax cable connector on the back of the modem with a coax cable to a wall cable outlet, a phone cable from the back of the modem the Tel 1 jack to your phone, and then plug it in. After a few minutes most of the lights on the modem should be lit up, steadily, and once the Tel 1 light is steady, check your phone for a dial tone.
A Digital Subscriber Line DSL broadband connection uses the wiring placed for phone services to provide Internet access for your home or business. But the installation of DSL does not limit your access to phone services at the same time. With the use of a splitter during installation, you can have access to both Internet and telephone services at the same time, without interference between the two. Contact a DSL provider in your area, usually the telephone company or another Internet service provider ISP , and sign up for services. Plug a telephone wire into one of the splitter jacks.
