This section provides hardware and software requirements for using your cable modem for telephone service.

Number of Telephone Devices

The RJ-11telephone-styleconnectors on the cable modem can each provide telephone service to multiple telephones, fax machines, and analog modems.

The maximum number of telephone devices connected to each RJ-11port is limited by the total Ringing Load of the telephone devices that are connected. Many telephone devices are marked with a Ringer Equivalent Number (REN). Each telephone port on the cable modem can support up to a 5 REN load.

The sum of the REN load on all of the telephone devices attached to each port must not exceed 5 REN.

Telephone Device Types

You can use telephone devices that are not labeled with a REN number, but the maximum number of attached telephone devices cannot be accurately calculated. With telephone devices that are not labeled, each device should be connected and the ring signal should be tested before adding more devices. If too many telephone devices are attached and the ring signal can no longer be heard, telephone devices should be removed until the ring signal works properly.

Telephones, fax machines, and other telephone devices should use the center 2 pins of the RJ-11connectors to connect to the cable modem telephone ports. Some telephones use other pins on theRJ-11connectors and require adapters in order to work.

Dialing Requirements

All your telephones should be set to use DTMF dialing. Pulse dialing is typically not enabled by your local provider.

Telephone Wiring Requirements

The cable modem supports interior telephone wiring. The maximum distance from the unit to the most distant telephone device must not exceed 1000 feet (300 meters). Use 26-gaugetwisted-pair,or larger, telephone wiring.

Important: Connection to an existing or a new permanently installed home telephone wiring network must be done by a qualified installer.

Common Troubleshooting Issues

I don't understand the front panel status indicators

See Front Panel LED Status Indicator Functions(on page 36), for more detailed information on front panel LED status indicator operation and function.

The modem does not register an Ethernet connection

Verify that your computer has an Ethernet card and that the Ethernet driver software is properly installed. If you purchase and install an Ethernet card, follow the installation instructions very carefully.

Verify the status of the front panel LED status indicators.

The modem does not register an Ethernet connection after connecting to a hub

If you are connecting multiple PCs to the cable modem, you should first connect the modem to the uplink port of the hub. The LINK LED of the hub will illuminate continuously.

The modem does not register a cable connection

The modem works with a standard 75-ohmRF coaxial cable. If you are using a different cable, your cable modem will not function properly. Contact your service provider to determine whether you are using the correct cable.

There is no dial tone when I lift the telephone handset

Your telephone wiring may be connected to the wrong RJ-11port on the cable modem. The cable modem has two telephone ports. Verify that you are connected to the correct telephone port.

There may be a problem with your telephone set. Use a different telephone set and listen to hear dial tone.

There may be a problem with your home telephone wiring. Use a telephone and connect directly to the same RJ-11port on the back of the unit. If the dial tone is working here but does not work at other locations in the home, a professional may need to diagnose and repair a problem with your telephone wiring.

Verify that the phone company has removed the previous telephone service from your home telephone wiring.

Your telephone service may not be enabled from your cable telephony service provider. Contact your cable telephony service provider for more information.

Tips for Improved Performance

Tips for Improved Performance

Check and Correct

If your cable modem does not perform as expected, the following tips may help. If you need further assistance, contact your service provider.

Verify that the plug to your cable modem AC cord is properly inserted into an electrical outlet.

Verify that your cable modem AC power cord is not plugged into an electrical outlet that is controlled by a wall switch. If a wall switch controls the electrical outlet, make sure the switch is in the ON position.

Verify that the POWER, DS, US andONLINE LED status indicators on the front panel of your cable modem are illuminated.

Verify that your cable service is active and that it supports two-wayservice.

Verify that all cables are properly connected, and that you are using the correct cables.

Verify that your TCP/IP is properly installed and configured if you are using the Ethernet connection.

Verify that you have followed the procedures in Installing USB Drivers (on page27), if you are using the USB connection.

Verify that you have called your service provider and given them the serial number and MAC address of your cable modem.

If you are using a cable signal splitter so that you can connect the cable modem to other devices, remove the splitter and reconnect the cables so that the cable modem is connected directly to the cable input. If the cable modem now functions properly, the cable signal splitter may be defective and may need to be replaced.

For best performance over an Ethernet connection, your PC should be equipped with a 10/100/1000BASE-Tnetwork interface card.
