is it possible to connect an LED to my telephone wiring without cutting or putting out the dial tone?

i decided to tap LED's on the telephone wires,well to my amusement it did light up,but the thing is,as i was trying to connect to the DSL ,it wasn't working.I lifted the landline phone and there's no dial tone.

I'm not sure if this is what you want, but use the Light To Mint Tin circuit and wire it to the speaker and thaty will work. Hope I helped!

Don't try to use the phone line as a power supply. You might get away with making one LED light with a resistor, but as you've discovered this sort of thing interferes with the operation of the line. L
