Vonage The actual color pair combo varies depending on what kind of wire the installer



The actual color pair combo varies depending on what kind of wire the installer used.

Red and green are the traditional colors for the primary tip and ring wires for line 1. You only need two wires to run a phone, and these are traditionally those two. If the house is wired for two lines, the second line is usually wired to the black and yellow. If you have three lines (six wire jacks, a rarity these days) it may also have blue and white for line 3.

The actual colors are irrelevant, so long as you have two live wires to each jack, and the polarity is not reversed. IN your case, they used blue and white for the house wiring.

It sounds like you figured out the problem yourself. So long as all your blues are tied together and all your whites are tied together, and they are disconnected from the Network Interface, you should be fine. The main thing is that all the jacks connect to each other.

This is about as complicated as the wiring diagram for a flashlight. Not high tech.

The telco side of your box has the more traditional red/green color pair wires. I'd leave it alone if you have already isolated the network.

As a former technican and EE, I cringe when I see more than 2 or 3 wires on a screw terminal. Screw terminals suck, basically. When you tighten them, they twist the wire, often breaking it at the weak point created by your stripping tool. Putting more than 3-4 wires on a terminal gets dodgy, as they tend to fall off as you tighten the screw, and oftentimes they can break in such a manner that they *appear* to be connected when in fact they are not.

Similarly, when you take a fistfull of wires and try to tie them together with a twistee-cap, odds are that one or two of them won't make a good connection or will make a flakey connection, which will give you conniption fits down the road.

I ran into this with my NIB, where the Bell Atlantic techs had like 10 wires on each terminal. Needless to say, there were a few flakey connections, and as the copper started to corrode, some extensions started having trouble. I ran a single set of wires into my house, where I wired the extensions into a wiring terminal so that there were no more than 2 or 3 wires per screw.

Of course, the fancy way to do it is with one of those punchboard strips like in commercial installations.

disconnect the lines at your NIU, close and label it and then run a standard phone
You can do it, however, you will have to take into account the Ringer Equivalence
What is in the house you have ethernet to the NIU but your only using the 2 wires out
Rather than make a new post, I might as well ask my question in here. I just bought
can you describe a little better how you phone box is laid out? I had swing connectors
