How does new phone line work when you gave 2 landlines?

How does the new phone line upgrade work if you have 2 landlines.  One of them being in a very different part of the house, miles away from the router?

They would divert the cable that runs to the second line to the router

Thank you.  That would be really messy.   It’s a really long way away.

 

Also are these taking up Ethernet slots on the router?

Hello @mezzaninedoor,

 

Welcome back to the community page, thank you for posting on here.

 

We would need to arrange for an engineer to connect an extension to the Hub.

 

I will send you a private message so I can make sure I can book this for you.

 

Look forward to your response.

No, there are two phone ports on the router, obviously it's impossible to say exactly how it would be done but the phone lines go to the same external box as the router, it shouldn't be too difficult
