Title: Wiring a styleline mini network to a Bell System Western Electric model 202
Post by: antiqueguy on February 04, 2012, 04:19:30 PM
Hello everyone. I bought a Mini Network from an Automatic Electric Styleline Telephone. I bought it from oldphoneworks.com .  I am really not sure on how to wire this thing up inside the base of my 202.  I have tried contacting customer support both through email and the phone and I just cant get anyone from that place that can help.  The link to the part on there site is http://www.oldphoneworks.com/network-mini.html .  I also have posted my own photo here http://hullofsorrow.deviantart.com/art/mini-network-283261948   .  I am not even sure if this will work.  I am trying to use this phone without using a ringer box.

You should be able to find wiring diagrams using  AE mini-networks in the TCI library. Also, Steve Hilsz used to sell a booklet showing how to wire various telephone sets with them.

Also, search for "mini network" in the TCI Library.  Hopefully one of the alternatives will help you.
