    Has anyone here set up a PHONELINE Network?

    I have....BUT...I have a question for anyone else who has also done this or has knowledge about it.

    Can it be set up on a PBX-like phone system??

    I have a friend that has a multiline phone system using Nortel phones in his home and he wants to build a phoneline network to share his ADSL throughout the home.

    Can this be done? I dont know if it can.....it was my understanding that it had to be a single phone line run through every room so the network can operate properly. Someone please enlighten me or insert any comments. I am very curious about this because I think I will be the one installing it if possible and I want to minimize problems.

    THANKS!!!

    Let's just say they are not widely used. In your combination probably even more rare. Sorry man. Anyone else?

    No it will not work through a PBX phone system. Phoneline networking requires analog phone lines, and the jacks that the PCs plug into must be on the same external phone line.
