PostPosted: Wed Oct 25, 2006 2:44 am    Post subject: Totally lost & Confused about Structured Wiring Reply with quote Back to top

I am very interested in Vonage but truly a rookie when reading all these terms I am not familiar with.

Here is my application.

I have a 2 yr old home with a structured wiring panel in the master bedroom closet. I currently have a Linksys Modem & Router for the internet needs. All jacks in the house are RJ-45 with Cat5E wiring.

I understand that most of the Vonage adapters have 2 RJ-11 phone ports on the back.

Heres my question: (I hope this makes sense for everyone)

Can I go out of the Vonage adapter an RJ-11 cord into my "Line In -1,2,3,4" on the Telecom Module and then use the standard wiring already installed for my phone jacks?

Here is a link to the Telecom Module I have - http://www.smarthome.com/29036.html


Thanks for any and all help anyone can provide

Yes. Having a structured wiring panel significantly simplifies the process of whole house wiring as you have discovered. The eight line RJ-45 socket in your panel will accept a 4 line RJ-11 phone cord (by design). It may feel a bit loose, but it will work.

http://www.dunx.org/blog/archives/001007.html

It is even possible to use an L1/L2 splitter to combine a Vonage line with a POTS line in this manner without any additional wiring required. This requires either two line phones or additional splitters at the phones for selecting the active line.

Now that you have that finished, use your free time to go out and get yourself a small UPS for backup and surge protection

Thats great news, thanks for the speedy reply.

So is it really as simple as it sounds? Should I assume the "Home Run" from my outside just gets unplugged and not used since the Vonage comes in over the RG6 cable?

Thanks for all the help.

Yes, that is a fair assumption.

An exception: In some situations someone has bypassed the structured wiring and tied an additional jack straight to the NIU (bad installer! bad!). In those cases that incorrectly connected jack would still be connected to the PSTN and not to Vonage.

Disconnecting the home run from the structured box is functionally equivalent to disconnecting the wiring inside of the NIU. In my opinion it is better because the structured wiring box is more likely to be under your control (not accessible from outside the home), and in many cases is as simple as unplugging the home run and plugging in a Vonage ATA.

The other advantage of a structured wiring layout is that typically you can put your networking equipment and you Vonage equipment all together in an out of the way place.

Great info, I should be ordering my equip. this week. Which brings me to my next question.

What are your thoughts on the Linksys RT31P2 router?

I currently have the Linksys BEFCMU10 modem and Linksys BEFSX41 router and really like the ability to stack them and keep them out of the way.

I noticed the local retailers have a newer Linksys Broadband router but I wouldn't be able to stack the components.

Are there any advantages to the newer model or is the RT31P2 going to work just fine for my application?

Thanks again, I wish all forums were this informative.

From all I've read here, the RT31P2 is a fine adapter. I also liked the RTP300 that I had before lightning killed it. Now I have a Motorola VT2442 and it's good as well, though the hiss may be just a touch higher than that of the RTP300.

The only real disadvantage of the RT31P2 that I know of is that it only has 3 LAN ports. The RTP300 and VT2442 have 4.
