Quote from: andre_janew on June 19, 2016, 04:29:47 PMI have a 500 with a 425E network. I can't get a dial tone with it unless the blue wire from the dial is on L1 instead of F. What is going on here? Is the network bad or could there be something else wrong?

Quote from: Pourme on December 21, 2016, 06:40:06 PMIf you have a local Harbor freight, get on their emailing list. They send out a coupon several times each year for a free multi tester, no purchase required. They work, I have several.
