anyone? and how do the phones even get power? i have a red and a green wire for the phones in my basement. i dont understand how the phones are even networked to eachother... so my Vonage adapter power it? if so then what is the point of the red wire? isnt the red wire for power? and the green is for ground? so what is the point in having any of these connected to the plate in my basement?

now since there is no current going thru them, again, whats the point? and would i need to just connect the green and red wires to complete the circuit?

btw, ive disconnected the line from outside and phones are off.

and on my Vonage adapter, the power light blink red, even if i have a phone directly plugged into it and the adapter plugged directly into the modem...

Terminology:

[url=http://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx]How To Wire a Phone Jack{/url] wrote:
Tip & Ring
In telephony the terms that represent the conductors that compromise a circuit are known as "tip and ring". These terms stem from the early days of telephony when operators made telephone connections using 1/4" phono plugs similar to those used today for stereo headphones. The old systems also carried a third wire which was a ground. The "Tip" was the tip of the plug and was the positive (+) side of the circuit. The "Ring" was a conductive ring right behind the tip of the plug and was the negative (-) side of the circuit. Right behind the ring was the "Sleeve" which was the ground connection.





So, no power/ground Green is Tip, Red is Ring.

Do not connect the green to the red. That is accomplished (the circuit is completed) when you pick up a phone. Connect all the greens together and all the reds together.

The phones are all wired in parallel. Picking up any phone completes the circuit. The only other place that red and green are bridge are in your adapter.

That picture is interesting.

For Vonage you should disconnect the blue/white and white/blue jumpers.

What is interesting is that the white/blue jumper should not be connected to the ground for normal PSTN usage. It should be connected to the bottom post to connect it to the second of the telco's wires.

I also recommend using actual splices for this and not just twisting the wires together.

Disconnect your legacy carrier from the "network interface" box. Sometimes out side the house or in the basement. Usually has a label on the face or just inside saying "network interface." Newer ones will have a modular jack with a swing up cover on it. One that is unplugged, just plug a known good phone wire from your Vonage adapter phone port into an unused phone jack in your house.

scerruti-i didnt do this myself, thats how its been for a while, so the white wire should be on the bottom then- for regular usage? and for Vonage i just should even have phone wires attached to that base plate since they are already connected to eachother?

ShelChgo-ive already done that, that it my problem, it still doesnt work

edit: i just moved the white wire from the middle to the bottom, now there is less static on the normal phone line. and now i have the cable unplugged from outside and ive disconnected that white wire and blue wire from the red wires and green wires. and it works

all i can say now is thx so much and **** Smile
ive disconnected the white wire and blue wire from the panel and it didnt work, but when i just completely take off the white and blue wires, it works... although there is no connection being made with anything. unless the signal was travelling from my phone outlet and down the blue/white wires and stopping for some reason. well, thx again.

Once our previous phone carrier was terminated, I disconnected the two phone jack plugs inside the phone box on the outside of our house. After determining our interior line was dead, I put a splitter on line one on the Vonage telephone adaptor (we have only one Vonage line). One modular telephone wire is connected to our cordless phone base and the second modular phone wire is connected to a wall phone outlet. We can now plug other phones into any outlet in our house. In fact our Tivo unit dials out fine.

An excellent reference I found within this forum is http://michigantelephone.mi.org/distribute.html. Making inside phone lines active is discussed in detail.

we just got Vonage for my moms home business and she needs to start using it now. the only problem is that we are having our phone number transferred to Vonage which means i cant disconnect myself from the outside phone line.

so what can i do? i need Vonage to work throughout the house...
is there a way that i could just hook up one phone directly to where the phone line comes into the house? which is in my basement.


Do What I did, wireless phone set and you will be up and running i no time.
