POTS line - No Ring but call connects

Unanswered Question

I have a 2811 Router with a FXS unit installed. I have set up a POTS line on one port and assigned a DID to it. I have plugged an old analog phone into the port for testing purposes and it is known good. It has a light that flashes when a call is incoming.

Currently my issue is that I can call the number and the light flashes on the phone but there is no ring... I can pick up the reciever and the call connects. If I hang up and pick up the reciever on the analog phone like I am placing a new outgoing call I have no dial tone.

I am wondering if I have a bad port on the FXS card.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I have this problem too.

If you connect your legacy analog phone on a traditional POTS line is it ring?
