In the home wiring instructions it tells me that I need to open the box on the outside of my house and disconnect the phone wire. I am assuming that this is recommended only if you have a cable internet, not DSL?

I wouldn't touch the wires if you have DSL I don't think it will work if you disconnect.

Do you have a dry DSL? I never had much luck with DSL, I switched back to cable and then dumped Bell all together.

You could always disconnect your extension sockets from your main phone socket where the cable enters the house and then plug the Vonage router into one of the extensions, this worked for me......but i would only suggest this if you know what you are doing....also I am in the UK, so our wiring may be different.

I am sure things are done different here in Canada than the U.K

I bought a V-Tech 5.8 mhz phone that has 3 handsets. The main handset plugs into the motorola Vonage adapter and the other 2 handsets and base just plug in the power outlet on the wall, no phone cord required.

correct, don't disconnect if you're running dsl. I'm not sure how the home wiring applies to people running dsl, since dsl pumps a higher voltage then a standard phone line, hence the needed filters. It might damage your Vonage adapter. Check with Vonage tech support to make sure.

there's always a way to make it work, but there are too many different ways that the house could be wired to be able to help you easily on teh forum..

but, if you can disconnect all yoru extensions form the DEMARC except for the one that runs to your DSL modem, and then wire those d/c'd extensions together, (not at all connected to the DEMARC with the live DSL ckt), then you would have 2 separate systems in your house.. you cold also use the black and yellow wires instead of your red/green ones, but then you have to re-wire all teh jacks as well, and you'd need to be very confident in what you are doing before you try this..

if you check out the 'home wiring forum' on this forum, you may find some pictures that may help you out.. Smile

Yes, if you are using DSL you have to disconnect the phone line from the phone wiring in your house.

But... of course you have to bring the phone line back into your house to connect to your DSL modem, which in turn plugs into the Vonage adapter that plugs into a wall jack to connect to your phones.

Basically, you are isolating the DSL line from your phones, which should be wired in parallel.

It is more difficult if you have DSL but it can definately be done. At the DMARC disconnect the ring voltage and the line for voice.

I forget the colors but there are several guides with more information. You will need to leave the 2 DSL cables at the DMARC if you are using that but will most likely need to disconnect them from the back of each phone jack.

Essentially disconnect the ring voltage and sound cables from the DMARC and then the DSL lines from each jack in your house except the one connected to your modem.

I found this a fairly good guide for basic wiring information:

PostPosted: Mon Dec 25, 2006 5:54 am    Post subject: Extn sockets Reply with quote Back to top

I am in the UK, and managed to disconnect my extension sockets from the main socket that comes into the house, (the one my DSL router is connected to), but you have to be sure that your only disconnecting your extension sockets, quite right, it is different in Canada to UK.
Although, I can confirm that a UK DSL line is no different in voltage to a standard PSTN line, as I have worked on these in telephone exchanges and the DSL blocks only cross connect with the regular pstn blocks.
