Telephone Connection

I purchased and installed the Orbi to take the place of the cox panoramic wifi modem but I missed the fact that our home telephone was also plugged into the cox wifi modem.  I really like the Orbi but it doesn't support plugging in a phone.  Does anyone have a solution or a work around?  I am willing to purchase an additional modem for the phone if necessary.

Re: Telephone Connection

Did you have the CBR40 or a RBR series? 

 

The CBR system doesn't support phone lines. NGs CM1150v does.

Re: Telephone Connection

I have the CBR40 which I really like.  Is there something I can add just for the phone?

Re: Telephone Connection

Unfortunately no. Thats hardware feature which the CBR40 doesn't support. 

 

If you need phone line support, you can do the following configuration:

CM1150v and then attach a RBK40 system to the CM modem. RBK40 or RBK20 series is same as the CBK40, just no built in modem in the RBK series.

We have our phone line hook to a Verizon wireless home phone connect that has worked pretty welll. I would suggest you keep the home phone connect away from the orbi though.

Orbi system doesn't support any phone line support. The CM1150v cable modem does.
