PostPosted: Wed Mar 15, 2006 3:27 pm    Post subject: 5 Phones - Office Setting - RTP300 Router - Major Issues Reply with quote Back to top

Hey guys, I'm having a major issue in the way I should be going around setting up my Vonage for my office setting.

Here's the low down.
I have 4 lines currently, my current phone setup has two jacks - Jack 1 is for line 1 & 2 and Jack 2 is for lines 3 & 4.

There are three rooms in this office and 5 sets of Jack 1 and Jack 2. Each phone has their own set of jacks.

I'm having major issues in how I should configure my setup to make Vonage work properly across all 5 sets of jacks.

I'm worried about plugging in the Vonage adapter directly into the phone jacks because from what I've read I don't have access to the phone box to neutralize the power and I don't want to fry/cause a fire in the office.

Is it possible to setup Vonage with this type of configuration? Do I need to invest in Wireless Phones now? Please help Smile

Thanks!

Connecting any of the Vonage adapters to phone wiring which is still connected to the phone co (even if there isn't a dial tone on that line) is a sure way to fry the adapter.

You should have some access to that part of the facility, ask the building management about it and they should let you into the phone room. Now, phone rooms are usually terribly messy and mislabelled places, but you might get lucky.

If you don't do that, the only other option is doing a cordless phone setup, which isn't bad. The Uniden TRU8xxx phones are the forum favorite, and I have 3 sets of them now (home, vacation home, and at work) and love them.

Thank you! I apprecaite the help. I was looking through the phones you've recommended and I've found these gems. They look like they are specifically designed for Voip business customers.

Any opinons?

don't quote me on this, but i dont think these phones will work with Vonage. These phones are meant for companies with a lot of offices. You need to have a central command tower rack thingy for these to work. They operate on a computer network. You really would need to hire someone to come in and work on them. Its really advanced. In a matter in fact, thats what im going to school for next fall. You would prob end up spending A LOT more money than you would save.

For ur situation, i would just cut the wires comming from the telco, then use the inside wireing thats already there. you can put ends of the wires, and then plug them into the Vonage adapter. but u do need to know what ur doing, cause there are a few wires that need to be exact.

Hmm..never knew Uniden made non-cordless IP phones... I think I'd still go for an Aastra or Cisco IP phone if I were to go that route...BUT, they're not currently compatible with Vonage.
