Digital subscriber line (DSL) splits your regular telephone line into two channels: voice and Internet. Telephone and fax signals travel through the voice channel, and Internet signals pass through the other channel.

To minimize interference between the two channels, ask for a DSL filter from your DSL provider.

  1. Connect the line port of the DSL filter to the wall jack.

  2. Connect one end of the telephone cable to the line port of the printer.

  3. Connect the other end of the cable to the telephone port on the DSL filter.

Note:  To connect a telephone to the printer, remove any installed adapter plug from the telephone port of the printer, and then connect the telephone.
