PostPosted: Thu Jul 27, 2006 9:31 am    Post subject: Hooking up Phones throughout the house Reply with quote Back to top

Ok, My mother just moved and needed to start paying for phone service. She asked me to hook up Vonage for her. I bought a wireless Linksys router with 2 Vonage phone ports and activated her through the website.

My question is how do I get the rest of her phones to hooked up to the house? Is there a device I can buy to take a phone line from the router to the wall so the rest of the phone ports in the house will take a phone, or am I stuck with only one physical phone in her house?

I hope I explained that clearly enough.

Check the "Hard Wiring - Installation" section of the forum for details. Or look at the forum FAQ. Detailed instructions on hooking Vonage up to your home wiring can be found in both places.

You need to do two things:

1) Disconnect completely from the telephone company outside of the house at the box, or inside at the junction jack. The hardwiring forum here has excellent information.

2) After step one, connect the adapter to ANY phone jack in the house using a standard phone cord, and the signal will be distributed to all jacks, in a ring fashion. The telephone adapter serves as the new "path-out" , which used to be the telephone company.

Does that make sense?

Alright, I think that makes sense......once I figure out how to get the phone fully disconnected I take a line from the router into the wall. I currently have the main phone in Port 1, so I'm guessing Port 2 will go to the wall jack to "light up the house" so to speak.

Port 1 and Port 2 are separate phone lines. You'll have to pick up a splitter.

Ok, so get a splitter (I'm sure I have one over there already) and plug the main phone in one side, the line going to the wall jack to the other side and have the splitter in Port 1.

I think that should be easy enough. I'm also perusing the wiring section. Hopefully it won't be too difficult, the house is only 9 years old.

If you don't want to go the hard wire route. Sams Club and Cosco have wireless phone sets that come with 2 or sometimes 3 extentions. You just need to plug in the base into the Vonage adapter and the others will work wirelessly.

Right. But since you got a wireless router, be sure you don't go with a 2.4 GHz cordless phone. Get a 5.8 GHz unit.

WIFI is also 2.4Ghz, and they can interfere with each other.
