PostPosted: Tue May 25, 2004 9:24 pm    Post subject: Wiring all the phones using Onq Strcutured WiringI Reply with quote Back to top

I have a wiring question that I have not seen posted. My house is pretty new (20004) and came with Onq wiring. This means that I have one line (Cat5) coming into my house from the phone box outside into my closet and then the phone splits from there to the rest of the house. The entire house is wired using Cat5 wiring. At the point where phones outlets are connected there is a cat5 plug (wired 568A) that a normal phone line plugs into.

I was hoping to simply disconnect the main line coming into my closet (service line input) that comes from the outside phone box and then run a wire from the Moto box to the service line input in my closet. I tried this by running a cat 5 wire from the service lin input on one side of the wire and then added a cat 5 terminal to the other end of the cable (wired 568A) and plugged a standard telephone cable from this terminal to the moto box. This did not work.

Is there a better way. My router, cable modem and moto box are all in my closet so I prefer to wire here as opposed to running back into an outlet as others suggest by disconnecting the phone service at the NID.

Thanks for your assistance.

It should have worked. If you're SURE you're wired in 568A, then pair 1 (blue/blue-white) should be on the center two pins. That pair should be feeding your main phone service throughout the house.

You have to make certain that the two active wires from the Moto box go to the right pair of pins on your RJ45 jacks (should be those two center pins). I would do the following:

- Fabricate a breakout cable set in two parts, one that terminates at an RJ45 plug (wired 568A) on one end and has all 8 wires available on the other. The other cable should have a standard RJ11 plug on one end and the two wires (red and green) available on the other, easily made by cutting a regular phone line and stripping the wires at one end.

- Start with the POTS incoming wire disconnected and plug your 8 conductor RJ45 plug into your house wiring

- Plug the RJ11 plug into the Moto box

- Start with jumping the RJ11's red and green wires to the RJ45's blue and blue-white. Check for dial tones in the house wiring

- If there is none, I hate to tell you, but your wiring doesn't see right. Try another pair of the RJ45's wires. Work through orange/orange-white, green/green-white and brown/brown-white, checking for a dial tone every time. You should hit it on one of the pairs. If you don't, something is REALLY weird.

- You may want to check for proper polarity at a jack, use a Radio Shack phone outlet tester to do that (but it's hardly critical with most equipment these days).

- Finally, make a permanent cable to replace your breakout cable to match whatever configuration worked, RJ11 (Moto box end) to RJ45 (house end) with one pair of wires.

Clear?

Thanks for the tips. I was able to get it working last night. I hooked everything up and could not get a dial tone on line 1. Fortunately, I bought a line tester and was able to see that I could get a signal on line 2. This gave me the comfort that the wiring was probably ok.

I hate to admit it but, I was able to see that the problem was some left over wire shielding in the connection point. My incoming service input in my closet is a punch down type connector and when I pulled the POTS line out some wire was stuck in there such that the new line could not make a good connection. Once I was able to get this out I had no problems.

What do they say? You should always check to make sure the power is plugged in first....

Yes, it's always the little @#$! things that can be so frustrating. Glad you got it working!

being i wanted my adapter in my study and all phones in the house connected including the one in the study here is what i did.

I also have a new prewired house. I put a splitter on the adapter one line from the splitter went to the phone here in the study. the other i connected to the connector in the wall that goes down to the central box. I unplugged the telco in connection to the central box first of course, then moved the patch cable that came from the study to the central box instead to the telco in connection so now all the house phones are connected. has been working great for about 2 weeks now. Very Happy

Hey guys...I am about to shoot my OnQ with a 12ga. I have read every post on here, including ones not on here and still can not get Vonage to work with OnQ. My setup is very basic, just like everyone elses. I have removed the Line 1 coming in (blue/blue-white). Plug in a standard RJ45 jack into my Vonage PAP2 adapter and then red/green to the patch panel. No go...I have a line tester, and when connected directly to the Vonage Line 1, I get the green light. When I connect the phone line to the PAP2 and touch the exposed red/green lines I get the green light. Once I punch down the red/green...no green light.
I have had to remove one of my phone lines and connect it to the phone line coming from the PAP2 and it works. So, bottom line, I only have one phone in the house working. Any ideas? Could I have a bad punch down panel, or could it be a panel that doesn't work with Vonage? What other panels should I try if that's the case?

Any help is greatly ... GREATLY appreciated!

One more thing, I just read someone else's post about voltage. Could it be possible that my PAP2 is not putting out enough voltage for all the phones in the house to receive dial tone? How would I test the voltage output?
