Hi all
having problems with my telephone connection & would appreciate any input.
Obviously have a connection to internet through tiscali but unable to access a telephone connection despite buying a direct link telephone from Argos this morning.All telephone connection appears to be dead no dial tone.
Any Telecoms engineers out there with a solution or reason for this problem to have occurred 24 hrs ago

Disconnect the modem/router. Plug in a known good telephone into the Master socket. If no dial tone, remove the bottom half of the Master socket and try the inner socket.

If no joy, ring Tiscali, they can test the line.
