Just got the Ignite router/modem installed and the Home Phone option. The router/modem got connected to the Cable input and the ONE phone jack in my home office where my old phone was connected. How do I now connect my phone to the router so I can use it. I don't have another phone line jack. Thx

Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
I logged in to the Router and tried to see if I could do that, but I can't. I'll call them tomorrow and try this. Thanks!!
Thanks. I tried this and it didn't work unfortunately......
Just to clarify, @Pauly is suggesting that you use something like this: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/commercial-electric-2-way-telephone-splitter-white/1000723599
That should work. If it does not, make sure that you are not using a similar-looking gizmo that breaks a 2-line phone jack into separate individual lines.
Interesting. I'll see if I can do this.....however, the router also connects to the coaxial cable to a nearby junction point to the phone.....I don't have that setup anywhere else in the house. 😞
If only the second port on the router / modem device would accept a land line phone as an input...
