Ive been trying to setup the scout in a seperate room to use it just for listening to my voice mail. No phone attached to it.Cannot get it to connect. My service is DSL. Tried using splitters,dsl filters,L1-L2-L1+L2 adapters but nothing works.

Does it work if you set the scout beside the hub and connect a short phone cable from the wall port of the hub to the wall port of the scout?

If it does, you have a house wiring problem to solve.

Yes it works with that setup I recently dropped my phone service and im using AT&T dsl direct. Wondering if they did something to the 2wire pair that comes into the house.One for dsl...one for phone?????

Then you need to analyze your house phone wiring.
My first guess is that the line 2 wires are not connected to the wall jacks because the installer was in a hurry or lazy.
Open up the wall jack and you will probably find the yellow and black wires not connected to anything.
