That looks like a good plan! Then I assume you would use a expandable cordless system.


If I understand you correctly, you want to have two adapters. One that is permanent in your house and the other to travel with. Keep in mind though that you can only have a line active on one adapter at a time. You can easily switch back and forth to different adapters via the online account but you can't have both active with the same number at the same time. So if you still need phone service at your house while you are travelling, you will be in a bind. Unless you pay for two lines and have one line active on each device but I don't think that is what your were aiming for.


With the popularity of Cat5 these days, you may find the price difference isn't much so maybe you should just run the Cat5. The difference is that cat3 has 2 pairs of wires, whereas Cat5 has 4 pairs of wires. However the actual single wires inside the sheathing are the same. They both use 24 gauge wires. A phone line only uses 1 pair of wire per line so with cat5 you would have 3 pairs not doing anything unless you wanted to have multiple lines at a jack. Although, if you have the cat5 at a location, you have the option in the future to change it to a 100Mbps ethernet jack.


The punchdown block, although the most professional and reliable option, may be a little overboard for 3 phone lines. You could get by with using crimp connectors or simply twisting the wires and taping them. You do need a special punch down tool to seat the wires into the block. You can buy it wherever you buy the block. There are two styles though, 66 and 110. Some tools come with only one of the tips and not both. Make sure you get a tool with the proper tip to use with the block that you buy. Personally, I prefer the 110 style block. You can buy them specifically for phone use and it's like a little circuit board with all of the wire locations labeled and color coded. If you are a novice, the best advice is to leave enough extra wire at both ends in case you have to rewire something a couple times to get it right.

Maybe this is too much info, but I'm just trying to get you off on the right foot. Also, you asked about a UPS in your original post and yeah its a good idea to use one. Specially if you are in a place that is prone to power outages.
