Frequently asked questions

I was under the impression the Call Waiting tone disconnected your Internet connection automatically. In fact I already have the Call Waiting service and I disable it before I use the Internet.
Know who's calling you before logging off!

Answer: Incorrect. The unit has been designed to constantly check ( " sniff " ) the telephone line for the Call Waiting tone and it will not interrupt / treminate your Internet connection. The unit will not work without this service being active so do not disable.

Question: Will I detect an incoming FAX ?

Answer: If you use a single line for shared Internet and Fax and you hear a fax tone after answering the call, simply press the “Start” button on your fax to begin receiving. Make sure your fax machine is plugged into the jack marked PHONE on the back of the Internet Alert™ unit.

Question: How much does Call Waiting cost ?

Answer: As of August 2001, BT charge £1.50 per month, This charge is subject to change so you should check with BT for the current price by dialling 150. Cable companies typically charge £1 per month if this service is selected on its own. However, BT is promoting other services such as Call Minder, Caller Display etc. into a value plan. For example, two services from BT cost £1.83 per month, again this charge should be check by phoning for the latest price.

Question: How many phones and other related products can be connected to a telephone line ?

Answer: The total REN value should not exceed 4. The Internet Alert™ 510 has a REN value of 0. Most telephone products have a REN value of 1 or less. Consequently, using the Internet Alert™ 510 will not result in you exceeding the maximum REN value of 4.
