I just purchased a APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1300. After installing the new ups my phone will not receive in-coming phone calls, but my internet connection is operational. My phone and internet connection has operated perfectly for many years using APC Back-UPS R S 900.
My phone and internet service is Century Link DSL.
If I disconnect the line from the ups my phone will receive in-coming phone calls.
What is wrong with the APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1300?
The Data-Line protector will protect 10/100 base-t on pins 1-2-3 & 6, with protection for you DSL phone line on pins 4 &5. You've indicated you are not receiving inbound calls. Can I assume you are able to make out-bound calls? Have you added any new RJ-11 phone cables or RJ-45 cables to the configuration or or is everything original?
Although extremely rare, it's possible there is an issue with the Telco/Network protection. If you continue to see issue, you want to call the APC Technical Support line. 800-800-4272.
I can make out-bound calls. No cables have been added and everything is original.
If I bypass the ups with the phone cable I have access to the internet and in-coming phone calls. I would really like to connect to my expensive APC ups though or I will never purchase another. (This is the 3rd APC ups that I have purchased.)
Sorry for the inconvenience. Please contact Schneider Electric Technical Support for assistance at 1-800-890-4272 or if you prefer I see that you are registered so I could ask support to contact you.
