    My current PC has the fax wire go into my modem and then another wire go from the modem to the wall for my dialup connection. How would I set it up for a Dual PM 1.8? There is only one port for my dialup connection on the back of a PM right (I dont have the PM yet its coming friday)? Would having a splitter at the wall for my dialup and fax work?

    Thanks for any help.

    Yes, your right some computers don't have pass through.
    Check your PM manual for the proper techniques and tools.

    I recommend one of two things.
    A splitter should work, and will likely be your choice for a work-around.
    Or you could just switch cables manually.

    Or you can go techie- Take a look at these. Old School still works.

    Just get a two or three way phone line splitter for a couple bucks.
