    How do I eliminate/rewire my DSL/Fax line to home phone line?
    Line 1 is a Verizon DSL/dedicated fax line in my office.
    Line 2 is my home phone.
    It would cost $95 for Verizon to come to my home for approx. 10 minutes or less to rewire the DSL/Fax so I can eliminate the extra (fax) line.
    Do I rewire through the NI box on the outside of my home?
    Any phone persons out there... your help would be greatly appreciated if I can do this myself. (The Verizon customer service rep said I could do this myself to avoid having a tech come to my home).
    My goal is to have only one line... home phone/fax & DSL.

    Do you have filters in side your house? If you do, remove them, you are done.
    If you don't have filters throughout, then you may have whole house filter.
    All they have to do is shut off DSL from office. If for some reason they need outside
    DSL filter removed. Then remove it.
    2 wires in, then 2 out to your fax. And 2 wires for DSL. Cut off wires that are to computer,
    Then the 2 wires that go to filter need to connect pair for voice(FAX)
    If you have cordless phone. Take out side, remove wire, loose dial tone?
    That is your home phone. The other your DSL.
    Doesn't work? Remove jack and find colors used for fax, voice, dsl. What are they?thanks
    Take Care
