Land Line to Modem


Can I hook my landline directly to my modem using one of the ports on the back?

What are you trying to accomplish?

When the tech came to install my fibre modem he unplugged my landline from the wall and ran a wire from the landline plug into the modem. Now I don't have a landline although it is part of my Telus plan. I saw a schematic suggesting a landline handset could be plugged into the modem, thereby restoring my service. I wondered if that was true?

Although I could be wrong, I don't believe that would work Kenoradave, you may need a splitter/filter that plugs into the wall port. It'll be best to give them a call in this case.
