I tried setting up a friend's DSL tonight. She has two phone lines and ordered DSL on her #1 line from Cavalier (also my DSL provider). The sent her a Paradyne Reach DSL modem which I believe is MVL. I plugged the modem into the phone jack and connected the ethernet cable to her computer and set up her tcp/ip settings.
The connection only works when her phone is off the hook, hang up the phone and it immediately cuts the connection. I tried plugging the line from the modem directly into the wall jack, and on both sides of a two line splitter. still no go.
Is there something different about two line systems I need to do? Do I need to use a 2 line DSL splitter for the modem?
