Hello...

Wanted to start off by saying I am fairly new to all of this and read the first 10 pages of this forum and got me even more confuse as I read through it. I hope someone could assist me in understanding this and determine if this is a something i want to try out.

Right now, my layout is like this. My house has 2 individual phone lines. One in my bedroom with one phone number and one for the rest of the house. My cable modem is upstair. I have the cable modem hook into a Netgear Router which then hook into my computers. I also have a linksys wireless router hook to that netgear router, howver disable the routing on the linksys and using as an Access Point in the meantime.

If I decided to go with Vonage, how would I proceed in hooking this up. The telephone box is outside my house to the size of my yard. House was built in 2000.

If I disconnect my phone company provider (verizon) how would I properly route the Vonage equipment so I could use all the phone jack in the house. Do I have to hook it to that box outside my house or could I hook it to one of the existing phone jack in the house? The room where my computer and LAN is on has one phone jack which the rest of the house shared off. THe one in my bed room is a unique line of itown with it own phone number separated from the rest of house.

Any information and clarifying information are very much appreciated.

Thanks!
DK

Wow, it is that simple? All I need is (ofcourse, clip off that wire outside my house) to plug an RJ12 from the Moto box to "A" phone outline in the wall of the house and I am able to use the phone from anywhere else in the house?

Now that is cool.

Another question: Am I able to disconnect that line in the box outside w/o disconnecting from my teleco to test out?

Here is a tricky question. What if I want to keep one active line from the teleco? Since I have two lines in my house, one in my room and the other one to the rest of the house. If I wanted to keep the line in my room with my teleco and still use the method you described above to still wire the rest of the house?

if you wanted to keep one active line for teleco, like in your room. just make sure that you disconnect the phone line that is NOT connected to your room. IE, disconnect a set of 4 or 2 wires that should be green yellow black and red. and test out your room and/or the rest of the house. if your room works and the house doesnt, there you have it.

with two phone lines in one house, there is two phone lines connecting to different lines in the NID box. so two sets of 4/2 wires.

for insurence check all the phone jacks in your house. Like Moto said, if one of them still connects to public switch telephone network then someting will fry.

You can leave the phone wires physically connected to the binding posts inside the NID box, disconnecting them can sometimes break up your house wiring loop. If you want to leave them connected you MUST unplug the modular plug in the NID that ties those binding posts to the phone company's side (put tape over the sockets to prevent the plug from being shoved back in there).

The advantage of just unplugging the cables is that you can freely test all the plugs to determine which goes with which service, and leave the one on that you want to preserve.

I would be careful when you do this. If you are not familiar with house wiring then I would suggest calling someone who could help you with it.

I see on the Vonage website:
- Vonage.com ---> Learning Center ---> Equipment ---> Question #6.

Just read the following. Just be careful thats all.
