PostPosted: Tue Oct 17, 2006 12:39 pm    Post subject: How can we put multiple lines (5+) on one router/device? Reply with quote Back to top

We have 4 Vonage voice lines and 1 fax. We recently added the 4th voice line and we now have 1 modem (for ISP) and 3 routers and/or Vonage devices (one Motorloa, one Linksys, one Vonage device -- all provided by Vonage at different times during the past couple of years) for the 4 phone lines.

How can we get rid of the 3 routers/devices and the rat's nest of cables, and have everything run through a single router/device? Does Vonage offer a device that can do that? If not, what third-party router/device would you recommend, and how would you hook it up?

I'd like to be able to have enough ports in one router/device for the 4 PCs, 4 phone lines and 1 fax line, plus room for possible future expansion of both PCs and phone lines.

Sorry if this question has been asked before -- I doubt we're the first to run into this -- but I couldn't find this topic on the forum.

Any ideas, folks?

Thanks!

Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router With 8 10/100 Switched Ports, NETGEAR ProSafe Wireless VPN Firewall 8 with 8 Port 10/100 Mbps Switch, or Netgear Fast Ethernet Switch (FS116NA) would be the one to minimize the number of routers, but as far as I know, there aren't any adapters with 2+ number of lines, so you will have to buy D-Link VTA for each of two lines.

every numbers is dedicated on designated phone ports.
to cut it short, you cannot use two numbers in one port
not unless if the number is a virtual or toll free number.
so for multiple lines/numbers,
you really need to have multiple routers or phone adapters as well.. Wink

and the maximum that a router or phone adapter can handle is only 2..

and to have a DLINK phone adapter is the only good
option that you can choose. Smile

Thanks to both GraysonPeddie and dheiy for your replies.

FYI, I also heard from Vonage, and they say they currently do not offer any device that can accommodate more than two phone ports. So, I guess we're stuck with the heaping piles of routers and devices. I shudder to think what happens if we increase our # of lines any further! Confused I hope they work on that. There must be many small businesses that are running into the same issue.

Thanks again.

Oh so you want to save a lot of wall outlets if you want like 8 lines in a single phone adapter... Yes, I agree with dheiy.

There are phone adapters that work with Vonage intended for small business use. The ones from epygi have four Voip ports and up to 16 Ethernet ports.
Vonage wrote:
To support multiple Voip lines, Vonage certified a handful of devices from AudioCodes, Cisco, Epygi Technologies and Quintum Technologies.


The downside is that these devices require more expensive business BYOD plans.

If you are using 5 separate phone lines then you may be in a position to consider some type of PBX system.

If you want to be more specific about how you are using the service and how you have the phones set up then the people on this forum can provide information on the best course of action.
