Hey guys. I need some help on how to wire my Voip. I live in a duplex. I don't have a POTS, but my neighbors do. When you look at my pictures, you'll notice that one of the sets on top is labeled "B." That is their side. I live on side "A."

I'm afraid if I mess around with this I might accidentally disconnect them, so I thought I'd come to you guys to see what I should try. I'd appreciate all the help you could give me.

Here are some pics of my unit (Sorry for the quality. My camera isn't the best):

If you were living on side B, I'd say pull that plug whose wire has a B tag hanging on it, cover the business end of the plug with some tape to protect it, hang another label on it asking people to not plug it back in, and you should be ready to go. Since you live on side A, I say leave that plug alone!

Is there another plug below labelled A? If so, that's the one you should pull.

Thanks for the reply, Steve.

No, there is no other plug that is labeled A. The blue and white wire that is behind the "B Label" is definitely supplying to my side. I've got that much figured out. There is also red and green that are running to the same place on my side...but they're connected on the very bottom in the picture.

Strange. There are no other plugs, labelled or unlabelled? Can you see where the wires at the other end of the "B plug" are going?

It could be that the POTS company has just one cable coming in with 2 pairs in it, and that one pair is for your side (currently unused) and one is for the neighbor's side. If so, pulling the plug could disconnect both sides.

Steve,
The wires for B, which I assume are the blue and white pair that are leaving from the top, are heading around the duplex over into their side.

I tried just unplugging the blue and white that head to my unit. Then I plugged in the cable running from my adapter to an empty telephone jack. The first time I picked it up, I got a dial tone on another phone. Then I hung up and immediately picked up again...this time I got a fast busy signal. I have to unplug the adapter from the wall to get it to work again, and then it's only for one phone call.

The reason I'm wanting to get all these jacks working is so that I can hook up my dish network receivers and avoid paying their stupid $5.00 fee.

Thanks for the help!
Josh

Something is wrong, and I recommend that you not plug your adapter into the wall until it's resolved. You need to verify that the pair you disconnected truly got you disconnected from the POTS lines. If you have a voltmeter, take the cover off one of the phone jacks and see if you have any DC voltage across the blue/white or red/green pairs. With POTS and your adapter disconnected, you shouldn't have. You also shouldn't be able to hear anything if you plug in a phone and blow into it or push a keypad button.

Once you're sure that POTS is disconnected, pull everything from every jack and plug in your adapter. Then add one phone and see if it works. If it does, start adding other phones until something goes wrong.

step 1

go outside and with a real phone that does not need ac power and your cell phone

plug it into "a" then call your cellphone and look at the caller id

then do the same on the "b" line then you should know which one is yours then try calling from you cell to you house # to confirm it

step 2

now that we know which phone line is yours leave it unplugged

go inside use the real phone and confirm that all of your phone jacks do not have a dial tone. if any do you know it is mis-wired to the other tenants line. don't use that jack until you can correct the wiring... but you should be ok to connect your Vonage device any one of the jacks that passed the test of no dial tone to provide whole house wiring.
