I am trying to convert my existing four line phone system from verizon to Vonage. My small office is wired (courtesy of Verizon) so that we have 2 four line phones. I am having trouble figuring out how to use my existing wiring to conform to the Vonage system. Any help?

It depends on how your wiring is set up, what access points you have, where the Vonage equipment will be located, and so forth. Give us some details and we'll try to help.

Have you already signed up with Vonage? If not, first run a speed/bandwidth test, and also run a Voip test at www.testyourvoip.com. Post your results and we'll try to see how likely the service is to meet your needs. Keep in mind that good Voip telephone service is utterly dependent on solid internet service.

I have two access points. They are all relatively close (all with in 25 feet of each other and the Vonage system. I only have about 400 square feet in office space. Verizon set them up so I have two phones that use four lines each. The verizon box is in the closet along with the Vonage and internet routers. Hope this helps.

It helps some. Those two access points are jacks for your two telephones, right? Presumably the Verizon box has four pairs of wires going to it to service the phones, and four pairs of wires going to the outside world. Can you post a photograph of the Verizon box?

The first step in the conversion would be to disconnect those wires that go to the outside world. That's very important. Once you've done that, you're left with four pairs going to your wall jacks for the phones. If your wiring is standard, the coloring of the pairs will be blue and blue/white for line one, orange and orange/white for line two, green and green/white for line three, and brown and brown/white for line four. These need to be connected to the Vonage adapters.

The Vonage lines will probably be provided by two adapters with two phone jacks each. One way to make the connections would be to get two ordinary phone cords and cut them each in half. Now you have four phone plugs with cut ends on them. Remove the insulation from the cut ends exposing the wires. In each you should have a red and a green wire, and possibly a yellow and a black. You won't use the yellow and black wires.

Connect the red wire from one of the plugs to the blue wires in the Verizon box, and the green wire from the same plug to the blue/white. Similarly, connect the red and green from another plug to the orange and orange/white, another red and green to the green and green/white, and the last red and green to the brown and brown/white. Now plug the four plugs into the four jacks on the Vonage boxes and you should be ready to fly.
