Installing Machine, External Two-Line TAD, and Two-Line 
Telephone
When you are installing an external two-line telephone answering device 
(TAD) and a two-line telephone, your machine must be isolated on one line at 
both the wall jack and at the TAD. The most common connection is to put the 
machine on Line 2, which is our assumption in the following steps. The back of 
the two-line TAD must have two telephone jacks: one labeled L1 or L1/L2, and 
the other labeled L2. You will need at least three telephone line cords, the one 
that came with your machine and two for your external two-line TAD. You will 
need a fourth line cord if you add a two-line telephone.
1
Place the two-line TAD and the two-line telephone next to your machine.
2
Plug one end of the telephone line cord for your fax machine into the L2 jack of 
the triplex adapter. Plug the other end into the LINE jack on the left side of the 
machine.
3
Plug one end of the first telephone line cord for your TAD into the L1 jack of 
the triplex adapter. Plug the other end into the L1 or L1/L2 jack of the two-line 
TAD. 
4
Plug one end of the second telephone line cord for your TAD into the L2 jack 
of the two-line TAD. Plug the other end into the EXT. jack on the left side of 
the machine.
You can keep two-line telephones on other wall outlets as always. There are two 
ways to add a two-line telephone to the machine‚Äôs wall outlet. You can plug the 
telephone line cord from the two-line telephone into the L1+L2 jack of the 
triplex adapter. Or, you can plug the two-line telephone into the TEL jack of the 
two-line TAD.
