UVerse & Land Line using same jack

UVerse & Land Line using same jack

 just had a new land line installed. AT&T was supposed to use a second jack in the house, but they used the UVerse DSL line. I plugged the phone into the back of the Gateway and it does not work. I then used a two line filter and it works, but does this compromise the dsl?

Re: UVerse & Land Line using same jack

No it does not.  Uverse is not like DSL where DSL has to be filtered at EACH phone jack inside your house.  Uverse is filtered/split at the outside network interface on the side of your house using what's called a balun.

 

So long story short, you are good to go!!  No worries.
