Hello, I'm Eric Bowen. I've got an extensive home computer network, wired and wireless, but I've also got one classic rotary phone (hooked to VoIP) and I'm looking to add another. Hoping to get some tips for this eBay special with no dial tone (in a verified working jack). Will post in another thread. See you around!

Welcome to the Forum, Eric. Good luck with your 554. They're usually pretty easy to troubleshoot.

Your last name reminds me... I used to know a man named Harold Bowen. He was a former coach and an elementary school principal and a friendly man with a great sense of humor. He used to announce sporting events on the local radio station and was known for his wit. Like when he was covering a race and he said "Well, here they come! And there they go!" and that was the extent of his coverage. I guess you had to be there. We all thought he would say more, but he didn't.

Welcome Eric.
The problem you are describing might be fixed with a simple wire movement.
Post a photo of the network and wiring.
