Vonage My strategy would be to choose a jack to use both as your DSL feed to the DSL modem

My strategy would be to choose a jack to use both as your DSL feed to the DSL modem and as your feed to send Vonage back to the rest of the house. Let's call that your "service jack". Phone jacks in most houses are actually wired for two lines, but usually only one is in use. I suspect the same is in your house. Generally the red/green pair is line 1 and the yellow/black pair is line 2. That's why you see so many red/green pairs wired up in your NIU box and only one yellow/black pair.

I would start by opening the box to my service jack and making sure that there is actually a cable with all four wires coming in to it, and that they were wired to the jack as I've indicated. I'd determine which cable in the NIU box services that jack, as we talked about above. Call it the "service cable". Call the cable that currently connects to the alarm box and has its red/green pair connected to the DSL landline right now the "alarm cable".

In the NIU, disconnect the red/green pair in the service cable from the terminals it's now on. The yellow/black pair probably isn't connected to anything. Now disconnect the red/green pair in the alarm cable from the DSL feed. Leave the yellow/black alone. Connect the red in the service cable to the red in the alarm cable, and connect the green in the service cable to the green in the alarm cable. Use insulated crimps for this, since you have no terminals for making the connection. This has the effect of connecting the output of your Vonage box (we'll get to that) to the input of your alarm. The output of the alarm is already connected to the rest of the house (yellow/black), and we've left that alone.

Now connect the yellow/black in the service cable to the DSL feed (where the alarm cable used to be). This has the effect of sending your DSL to the service jack on line 2.

Now we need to set up your equipment at the service jack. For this, you need to buy a gadget they call an L1/L2 splitter. It plugs into a phone jack and separates the two lines in there, feeding them to separate phone jacks labelled line 1 and line 2. (It's not the same as a simple parallel splitter.) Get one of these and plug the common port into your service jack. Run an ordinary phone cord from the L2 port on your splitter to the input on the DSL modem. This gets your modem hooked up to the DSL service. Run another cord from the L1 port on the splitter to the output jack on the Vonage box, and you're all done. All the jacks in the house should carry the Vonage service on line 1, assuming the jacks are properly wired now.
