Vonage Most houses are wired for 2 lines. What you need to do is use one for your DSL and one

Most houses are wired for 2 lines. What you need to do is use one for your DSL and one for Vonage. Since most of the phones you'll want to use will be single line phones, and you'll want them to connect to the Vonage line, you'll want to set things up so that Vonage is on line 1 and the DSL is on line 2.

The problem with your first attempt is that pulling both plugs at the NID disconnected your DSL. The problem with the second attempt is that plugging the plugs back in re-connected your DSL, but, unfortunately, almost certainly to house wiring line 1. When you plugged your Vonage box into a jack, it also was connected to line 1, and you can't have both services on the same pair. (You're lucky you didn't damage the Vonage box.)

Since your DSL is currently on house wiring line 1 (almost certainly), you start by changing that. First you need to figure out which jack in the NID is the active DSL. Just pull both plugs, and plug an ordinary phone into first one jack and then the other. Figure out which one is "live". This is you DSL jack. Now you need to get that connected to house wiring line 2 . You can do this by re-wiring the plug that used to plug into that jack so that it now serves line 2 instead of line 1. You may also be able to do this by simply plugging the plug that used to go to the other jack into the DSL jack. Either way, when you're done, one jack in the NID should have a plug in it and the other should be empty. One plug should be hanging loose. Insulate it with a bit of electrical tape. Now your DSL is on house line 2.

Next, you need to get the DSL into your DSL modem. That's not as simple as it was before, because just plugging it into a wall jack hooks it to house line 1. Run down to K-mart or some such and get an L1/L2 splitter. This is not the same as an ordinary telephone line splitter. It separates the two pairs in the wall jack into two separate jacks, labelled L1 and L2. Plug the splitter into a wall jack and run a telephone cord from the port labelled L2 into the DSL modem. You should now have internet again, and your Vonage device should also work. Now run a telephone cord from the active Vonage device jack to the port labelled L1 on the splitter and you should be good to go.

One last bit of advice. The cords that run from the splitter to the DSL modem and Vonage device should be the cheap kind that have only two wires in them instead of four. You can tell be looking at the contacts on the plugs. Using the good, four conductor cords should work, but using the cheap ones guards against getting the two lines (DSL and Vonage) hooked together if either the DSL modem or the Vonage box is poorly designed.
