RJ11 USB Adapter and Modem URGENT

slap_shot18

I'll cut to the chase. I have a modem without a rj11 port and a Comcast triple play with a phone line. I have a limited amount of time to activate the phone line otherwise Comcast will cancel the line and my bill will go up (don't ask why because I have no idea  :mellow:). Can I buy a USB to rj11 adapter, plug it into the modem and have an activated phone line (the modem has a USB port). 

 

Modem: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/netgear-ac1750-dual-band-wireless-ac-router-with-docsis-3-0-cable-modem/4483016.p?id=1219098341552&skuId=4483016

Adapter: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/trendnet-56k-usb-internet-modem-phone-white/1306919744.p?id=mp1306919744&skuId=1306919744 

or something like that

 

Thanks

if you have a comcast modem the usb's on them are not active and are disabled. as for why your bill would go up is due to the fact that you would no longer be a triple play but a double play and thus in a different tier. 

 

so my browser didnt load the whole post and i noticed you want to use the usb on a modem that is not comcast well that would work but the one issue is that the phone to usb you picked is actually a 56k modem for dial up. not for phone service. why cant you just buy a actual phone and use that?

 

Again i think i need to sleep as i didnt read what you wrote right. well you need a comcast modem with a phone output as they use a service call and they embed there phone line into the actual phone port on the modem for voice. its the only way that comcast voice works. ( i have comcast voice and have had to stick to there modems for that reason. )

Please Quote so i know you have replied. | If we have provided a solution to your problem mark it with answer found.

And also please read the COC and avoid the embarrassment and lecture that will ensue.

Any USB RJ11 device you might find is going to be for connecting to an active phone line, not for outputting a telephone signal.

You need to get a Cable internet device that talks to the DOCSIS network and outputs your telephone signals. When we had Cable Triple Play from Cox Communications, our telephone device was seperate from our modem - so I know they do exist. What I don't know if those are supported by Comcast. Alternatively, you can get a modem that has phone line output built in. Comcast can definitely provide one, or give you a supported model number that you can buy on your own (recommended).

In order to use phone service on Comcast you did a digital voice modem. We had digital voice for 4 or 5 years. Comcast generally will supply you with a all in one Digital voice modem/Router. As I understand you MIGHT be able to buy one at best buy, but that's the reason we got rid of our phone service, because they will charge you 10 bucks a month for a rental fee. Im not sure what models best buy has or even if you can still pick them up, only some best buys carry them. 

 

You can find a compatible modem here: http://mydeviceinfo.comcast.net/ to be sure you are looking at the right modems, as this is comcast's list for devices. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.
