Vonage A really quick generic answer would be that you can stick as many phone lines in

A really quick generic answer would be that you can stick as many phone lines in as you have pairs of wire - if you have 3 pairs (6 wires) then you can have 3 lines, and yes, one pair can be connected to the NID while another is connected to your Vonage box, of course be sure it's a seperate pair, and that none of your jacks cross it.

The easiest way to do this is to simply have different jacks wired for different pairs, for example you'll probably already be using "blue" for your landline, so you could use "orange" for your Vonage box - as long as it's disconnected from the NID outside, you can actually plug the Vonage box into any jack wired for "orange" and it'll spread the signal to all the other "orange" jacks as long as the other jacks are connected to it somehow.

That said, the single 'easiest' way when you have a spot you want to use dual lines like this is to simply get a wallplate that has two jacks, but if you happen to have a few 'in line' line splitters laying around, you can always pop them open and switch the wires on the '2nd' jack so that one jack is "blue" and the other is "orange" - this is how I did it, since I already had the phone system set up in such a way - whether or not your other wallplates are single or dual doesn't matter, in fact you could always just have one single "blue" wallplate in the house and have all the others hooked up to the orange pair.

*shrug* all up to you, for me this works great because 1. I keep the Vonage box, modem, etc at my desk as that's where my network begins, 2. The phone base stays where it belongs, and finally 3. I can hook satellite receivers up to the landline that won't work with Voip ;) .. and lastly, I'm using DSL so I have to have a landline somehow!

As for the whole thing about signal quality and power supplied, I wouldn't fret too much over it - most phones today are cordless, if you're using a corded phone, you can probably have 3 or 4 of those safely, if you're using an *OLD* corded phone, I don't know that would depend on how much power it sucks when ringing - the worst that can happen is it won't ring properly and click or something silly like that..

Signal quality is another thing - I doubt anyone living in a house, even a 10 bedroom one that's 5000 square feet, will have a problem with 'being able to hear it' - funny but when I switched around things I realized the Vonage line sounded almost twice as loud as the landline did on the regular phone.. geez - it was so high I had to turn the volume down.

And that's going over at least 90 feet of wire (from my desk about 30ft to the wall jack, another 30 or 40 feet to the NID, and then about 50-60 to my room and ANOTHER 10 or so to the phone..).. so that shouldn't be a big deal.

As long as you're not getting any high power feeds INTO the line pair other than the Vonage box, you'll be fine :)

You should be fine. I ran Vonage and POTS service side-by-side on lines 1&2
One simple solution is get a 2-line duplex adapter from an office supply store.
As Scerutti says, you can ...however don't mix things up. Scerutti is using
All, I am assuming that what I am disconnecting in the NIU is the RJ-45 plug, correct?
