Quote from: Phonesrfun on October 09, 2010, 08:14:21 PMIf you connected the red and green that were coming out of the desk set to the line directly, with no network or subset in the middle, then you were connecting the receiver element directly across the line with nothing to connect the transmitter or match the line to the telephone set internal impedance. (A fancy word meaning it won't really work.)The network is a circuit that is smaller and electrically equivalent for doing the same things as the older subsets. They do several things, but the most important is that they make the phone actually work.
