There is actually no fixed number of phones that you can have on the line, it is the total impedance of all phones on the line that matters. For instance, you might have only 1 telephone (if it is very old and has a mechanical electro-magnetic ringer - typically a real bell) that completely drains the ATA of power, rendering the rest of the phones on your line useless when a call is ringing in. You should find the Ringer Equivalence Number "REN" on your phones and sum them up. The REN can be found on the bottom of most phones as well as answering machines, call display boxes, and almost any other analog device that plugs into your phone line. A standard telephone will typically have a REN of 1. The total REN should not exceed 3 to 5 on most phone lines. I'm not sure what the REN total would be on the Motorola, or LinkSys ATAs. I have 5 telephones on my line, and the sum of the RENs is 6.5 and all of them ring properly and they all work fine. I believe the power supplied by my Motorola box is similar to whatever Bell was using because I had the exact same phones when I was with Bell. My oldest phone has a REN of 1.6. My cordless phone has a high impedance ring sensor, and therefore has a REN of just 0.6. Cordless phones have the ring transmitted to the handset from the base. All that the base requires is a small signal from the line instructing it to ring. The power to make the phone ring however is not coming from the line. Cordless phones work much differently when it comes to ringing. That is not to say that some corded phones may not have much of a REN too. I would say for the Voip boxes that are being used for Vonage, you can go up to 5 or 6 REN.

If you cannot find the REN on the bottom of your phone, then the phone is either really old, or it is a really cheap phone. I would probably look at replacing it with something else if it is not working well on the line, or if it is preventing you from having other phones on the line ring.

If you cannot afford a newer phone, the other thing you can try on some phones that allow it is turning off the ringer. If one phone in particular is draining the power to ring all phones, you could try shutting the ringer off and hopefully it will allow the power to go to the remaining phones. Once the ringer is turned off, you can subtract the REN number of that phone from your total REN.

As mentioned, some phones offer lower RENs than others. This is something to consider when purchasing multiple phones for your home. Find out the REN, and make sure the total of all phones does not add up to something ridiculous.
