Vonage Hello, :eek: 1st I would look at the distance between the two end points.



Hello,

:eek:
1st I would look at the distance between the two end points. Ethernet which is riding on the Cat5 has about 300' if conditions are good. If from one end of the Cat5 if house 1 and the other end in house 2 is close to 300 feet then you might better look at some sort of alternate method.

2nd The brand of router you use does not make as much difference as a feature called QoS (Quality of Service). QoS will regulate throughput based on priority. Basically it works on on the presumption that most people wont notice that a web page take a few seconds longer to open. They will notice a choppy telephone call.

:eek:
A regular POTs line (Plain Old Telephone) can have a distance of about 1000’ and a REN of 7 REN is Ringer Equivalency Number. 1 would be equal to the ringer of one of those old style phones with the brass bells and the pots line can power 7 of these. Most newer phones are less than 1. The REN will be listed on the bottom of the phone. I have a cordless phone that has a REN of 0.2. A post line could handle 35 of these phones.

My Linksys WRTP54G Voip router has a REN of 5 which is less than the POTs specification. I don’t know what the wire distance is.

Option 1
Get the Linksys WRTP54G Voip router which has QoS for house with Internet connection. Get a Linksys PAP2 Voip phone adapter. String a CAT4 line from both ports on the PAP2 to the telephone access point on the outside of house 2. Get House 2 some 802.11b network adapters. (802.11b gets better range than 802.11g)

Option 2
If the total length of the Cat5 between the two houses INCLUDE up walls, under ground, over ceilings, swag.. is under 300’ (250’ would be better) . I would string Cat5E minimum Cat6E would be better.

See if your modem will support multiple connections. Some will I have the Motorola SB5120 and it will support 32 connections. If it will get a small 4 port switch (NOT A HUB or ROUTER) check around I have gotten them new for under $10.00 connect it to the modem connect Voip router for the House 1 to one of the ports. Connect the Cat6E line to House 2 to another switch port. Connect Voip router for House 2 to the other end.


Follow the wiring rules. When strip the cover off of the CATx wire its is twisted. The twists are VERY important and must be maintained. No right angles always sweep use a 1” minimum bend radius. Less will flatten the wires inside the cable. All joints should have .5” or less untwisted wire.

Good Luck
:-D
