First, run the speed test on the forum here (look to the left, under "Vonage Information", run the "VoIP Speed Test"). That will attempt to estimate the number of lines you need.

Keep in mind, with bandwidth saver set to its tightest setting, you need at least 30kbps per line, up and down, to have anything resembling a decent call. At default settings, you need 90kbps.

So, 6 lines means you need, at absolute minimum, 180kbps up and down.

Personally, I have an advertised 256 up and 3000 down. But my real-world testing shows closer to 200 up and 2600 down. That means I could *probably* support 6 lines set to 30kbps, but the rest of my network (upload, at least) would be running at near-dialup speeds. And I wouldn't expect crystal-clear audio on the other end. 30kbps will be cell phoen quality, or therabouts, and you may have interference between the various lines if you're approaching your maximum bandwidth. And if someone starts a large upload with most of your lines active, you're screwed.

Run the speed test I mentioned, and the tests at www.testyourvoip.com and post the results. If you have huge amounts of bandwidth, then you're probably OK.
