Vonage If you have a single phone line via Vonage: Open the GREY box and make sure there

If you have a single phone line via Vonage:

Open the GREY box and make sure there is no active signal from the phone company. You'll be able to see the wiring for the house itself. What I have done is unhook the local wires from the phone box itself to isolate the phone company signal all together, leaving the wiring for the house connected GREEN -> GREEN / RED -> RED for all the wires at the box.

All you need to do is use the output from the PAP2 as INPUT into a normal wall jack. The rest of them are wired together and they all meet eventually at the GREY box on the outside of the house. Think of it as a big ciruit that goes throughout the house, the important part is taking away the phone company's lead from the loop which starts at the grey box. Once you eliminate this from the ciruit the only signal left is Vonage. Very easy to put back if you move or rent!

Unless something VERY strange has been done to the wiring in the house this should work for "replacing" the main feed from the phone company with your own i.e Vonage on the internal ciruit of your home.

The other option if you're using a normal phone AND Vonage OR have two Vonage lines is:

The GREEN / RED leads are the primary line and the YELLOW / BLACK are spares or for a second line. If you still have a normal phone line you could use the YELLOW / BLACK as the Vonage line and change which ever wall plates you want setup for Vonage to use the YELLOW / BLACK instead of the GREEN / RED wiring on the back side of the jack. You have to put the YELLOW / BLACK wires to the GREEN / RED posts on the back of the jack itself for the input jack with the Vonage line and also those you want setup for Vonage signal. The rest of them will still be using the GREEN / RED for the phone company. Same logic applies to 2 different Vonage lines in the same house.

Keep in mind that the YELLOW / BLACK may not even be connected together starting in the GREY box if they have never been used and you would need to connect the YELLOW -> YELLOW / BLACK -> BLACK leads together to make essentially a second phone ciruit in the house. If you wanted a connection for each line at one wall plate, put in a double jack wall plate and wire GREEN / RED to one and YELLOW / BLACK to the other jack using the GREEN / RED posts on the back of the jack itself.

Tracing the lines can be pretty simple with a $40 tone generator from Home Depot / Lowes. You don't have to have the expensive one! I've used a 9v battery and a Multimeter before when I was in a jam since NORMAL ACTIVE phone lines from the Telco will have a 50v signal. You can trace the lines from room to room or to make sure the signal reaches a particular jack etc. It's a big ciruit so unhooking one might disconnect 2-3 jacks in the house since they're all fed from a few main lines i.e one per floor or something similiar.
