PostPosted: Mon Jul 10, 2006 11:02 pm    Post subject: Existing phone jack connection Reply with quote Back to top

We are moving into a new residence soon and have just signed up for Vonage for when we move. The house is about 20 years old.

I want to be able to use regular phones in the existing phone jacks instead of buying a wireless base/set ot buy wireless telephone jacks. Vonage told me I cannot make this happen without some serious re-wiring. Is there an "easy" way to do this and/or does anyone have a link to a site that describes this?

I have Voip through Comcast now and am able to use all regular phones on exisiting jacks. They installed something that is right next to the existing jack. (It looks about the size of a standard wall jack...is mounted to the wall and runs out into the existing jack). Could I use something like this instead of re-wiring as Vonage said I'd need to do?

Sorry if this has been addressed before, but I appreciate any input! Thanks!

im not sure exactly but if its not something exclusive to comcast, then it should work but i think rewireing is the best way if its not that big of a hassle.

Why not let Comcast move your current service since they have the qualified technicians to make sure your house wiring is properly disconnected from the former drop and reconnected to the Comcast Digital Voice modem.

Once you have your phones working on the existing wiring you will have a choice; keep things as they are or jump into the un-known. Before making that choice, I highly recommend that you read through some of the posts on this forum so that you know what you are getting in to.

Good Luck!

The Vonage techs are just covering their butts. Vonage can't support house wiring- they have problems supporting the service for which they're actually responsible. Odds are good that if you disconnect the Comcast box from your house wiring and make sure that any old land lines are disconnected as well, then all you'll have to do is plug the Vonage box into a wall jack to be up and running.

As for links, there are good tutorials at the top of this forum and at the top of the FAX/Tivo/alarm forum.
