Okay, this might be just a real simple solution, but how/where do I hook up additional phones in the house? I don't still use the phone jacks that I used with my AT&T service do I?
I have the one main phone at the computer working, but want a phone in the rooms that I had them in before I switched to Comcast Voice.

JamesR is correct in running a RJ11 wire from the modem to an existing phone jack. I'd just suggest however to make sure that your old connection to the AT&T landline system has been disconnected first.

Thanks for the reply. I like the idea of a cordless phone system and not messing with the AT&T phone jacks.
So... the way to do it is to go purchase a cordless phone system (that has the amount of extra phone handsets that I want) and just plug the base station phone line into the back of the modem and then it probably has an electrical cord that I need to plug in also. Set up it's optional features such as preferred language/amount of rings/etc...
Then place the extra phone handsets in the rooms that I want them in, probably having to plug their base into electrical outlets, setting up each phone handset with their optional features and that would be all I need to do?
I appreciate your help. Thank you.
