How do I connect Verizon NID to my phone line wires
I bought a dual phone jack to connect my phone lines to but when I attach the phone wires to the new jack and then runs a phone cord from NID box to the newely installed jack does not work. I am wondering whether i need to connec the CAT 5 cables from the house directly to the NID box outside, but I do not see anywhere to attach the CAT 5 wires inside the NID box all I see there is a modular hook up. Verizon employee had said all i needed was to plug in the phone wire directly on the NID box but the wire is not long enough to reach my computer. THis is a dry loop line for my DSL I do not have any previous phone line intallations, but I do have jacks inside the house which are not connect to any type of phone service. the phone jack cable wires are hanging in the basement. SO in other words I am trying to figure out how to connect those hanging wires from the basement to the NID box installed by verizon a couple days ago.
THank you for any help.
