    I have a phone on my desk that works fine.
    I just got a fax modem to send faxes
    Now when i plug the desk phone into the modem i get no dial tone.
    Any suggestions

    The modem is a Conexant D850 PCI V.92

    With due respect, I believe that you have the line in and phone jack wires
    reversed. Try swapping them. The phone should be dead when the fax is
    working and live when not faxing.
