PostPosted: Thu Mar 02, 2006 10:32 pm    Post subject: DSL and Home Wiring Reply with quote Back to top

I have Verizon DSL and want to hook up the RTP300 to my home wiring. I followed the instructions on Vonage's website but when I disconnect the phone lines from the red and green screws I lost all DSL connectivity. This makes sense since the DSL goes through the home wiring. In fact, if I hook up a phone to any jack in the house, I get a meesage from Verizon stating "this is a dedicated data line". Can someone tell me the work around? Vonage said one exisits but she could not give me the instructions.

Thanks in advance for your help.

If somehow, you were able to connect your DSL modem directly to the phone company's side of the NIU, that would isolate your inside wiring, and give you a connection out to the world. Is that possible with where your boxes are?

ok basic wiring line 1 is red and green line 2 is yellow and black.

you want to get to the point where only dsl is on one line and your phones are on the other.

several ways to accomplish this. swapping the wires around in your network box and/or phone jacks

at the network box put the dsl on the yellow/black pair now at the phone jack where your dsl and ata are get a 2 line adapter it looks like an y adapter except each jack is labeled line 1, line 2.
hook line 2 up to your modem once you have a connection on the modem you should be ok to then hook line 1 up to your ata

Thank you. I think I understand. Currently the DSL is on line 1(red and green screws). The home wiring is cat 5 and the DSL uses the white/blue and blue wires of the cat 5 connected to line 1.

If I understand correctly I should connect another pair say orange/white and orange to line 2 then use the splitter inside any jack where I want dialtone. I then plug the phone into line 2 of the splitter. Also I would plug the RTP300 into line 2 of the splitter and the DSL into line 1. Is this right?

That works. However, I think what a-dhold had in mind was for you to hook the DSL to the orange/white-orange at the input box. Then you use just one splitter to pull the DSL off and plug it into your modem. That leaves line 1 (blue/white-blue) open for Vonage, and you can plug the RTP300 into a jack without any splitter and any regular, one-line phone into any other jack and get dial tone without a splitter.

I'm not sure I follow this. Would I have to access the Verizon side of my NIU? Right now all I see when I open the customer side of the NIU is 4 screws one pair for each line.

There is a folding clip with a male and female plug/ jack which connects the Verizon side of the NIU to the customer side of the NIU. In order for me to get to the home wires and line screws, I first have to lift up this clip which disconnects the house from Verizon. Is it here that you want me to insert the splitter?

The light went off in my head. These instructions are great! Thank you for all of your help. I now understand what to do. The only thing you should have added to the beginning of this is "Hey idiot try this..." Smile

PostPosted: Sat Mar 04, 2006 5:50 pm    Post subject: DSL and Home Wiring Reply with quote Back to top

Well, I got the DSL separated from the internal home wiring. Now I am completly dead on the home wiring. The only problem now is when I plugged in line 1 from the RTP300 to the wall jack, I got nothing. I didn't use a splitter, I purchased a wall jack with two lines so I wouldn't have anything hanging from the wall.

Any ideas?
