phone hook up at cable box

I just had cox installed and want to know if I have to hook the base phone to my cox modem or if I can hook up one of my extra phones to modem. I have a netgear  wifi also. I want to use my base phone in living room if possible.

  • Hi gary,

    Please connect the base phone (Main) directly to the modem (Tel 1) in order for the secondary handsets to work. This should get things up and running.
