DSl and no dial tone

Since starting dsl our 2.4 and 5.6 ghz cordless phones get no dial tone. We can receive calls and can dial out #s that don't start with a 1 . Verizon say the problem is not them - it is the phones. Have bought new phones that also get no dial tone. HAve a cordless 9oo mHz which works. Have tried the 900 phone on the 2.4 jack and the 900 works - have tried the 2.4 on the 900 jack but still no dial tone. So can't be the filters. Any ideas?

Try No Filter

Try Them Without The Filters. If They Work Its The Filters Try Leaving Them Out. Maybe Everything Will Work Ok. Some Times You Dont Need Filters Even Though Your Supposed To Have Them.

no dial tone after dsl installed

I'm a dsl tec with another phone company. There are some 2.4 gig cordless phones that are incompatible with dsl. Just found out this info. Don't know yet how to solve the problem, but will let you know.

Have bought 5 other phones - bought 2 Panasonic s 2.4 and 5.8 - neither worked. Then a Uniden 900 and a Panasonic 900 .The Uniden worked but not the Panasonic. Bought another Uniden 900 and it works. Looks like it may be make of phone! Panasonic and GE incompatible with DSL.
Thanks for info

Glad you found the problem. I still don't know how to solve the problem with certain cordless phones. I'm sure the brains are working on it.

Do you by chance have a wireless router installed to go with your DSL, or does the DSL modem include a wireless router?

Wireless routers can cause problems with cordless telephones. This is a documented problem, and one reason to avoid wireless.
