PostPosted: Sat Jun 28, 2008 5:19 pm    Post subject: Multiple phones for one line Reply with quote Back to top

I recently joined Vonage. I want to use multiple different wired phones in different rooms using the same line. I don't want to use a wireless solution or cordless phones, and I definitely can not re-wire the phone lines in my home. What are my options? I would rather avoid extra wireless and cordless solutions because I have noticed that my previous cordless phone would temporarily disconnect my wireless internet connection whenever it was turned on or off.
If I have a second wireless router in another room, can I attach another V-portal to that router and connect another phone line in that room? Any other options?
Thanks,
ST

No, you can't use a second V-portal for the same phone number. You could use one for a different phone number. Of course that would cost extra money.

I understand your desire to avoid cordless, so let's explore the house wiring issue. Why don't you want to set things up so that the Vonage system can use the existing house wiring?

I live in an apartment. The idea of messing with the unit's wiring seemed a bit off putting to me, mainly because I have no experience in such things.

My experience with other cordless phones in the past is that the frequency they work on interferes with my wireless connection to my laptop. Would this be a similar problem with a Vonage phone?
Thanks,

Probably because it was a 2.4 ghz wireless phone. Get the newer, 5.8 ghz, etc and you chould not have a problem. I have two wireless phone sytems with two handsets on each, both 5.8 ghz and an older 2.4 ghz Panasonic and have no problem with my wireless internet. I figure I am just lucky on the Panasonic as not all 2.4 ghz cause a problem, just most.

You seem to be fortunate. I use a Uniden TRU8885 5.8 GHz Digital Cordless Phone and get interference all the time when the phone is turned on and off.

You do have a problem. If cordless isn't an option, then I don't know of any other except house wiring. I'd check with the apartment manager and see how difficult it might be to disconnect from the external landlines. Definitely find out how many lines the apartment is wired for and how many of those are actually connected to external lines.

I guess I am fortunate. One thing you may try before throwing in the towel on wireless phones is change the channel for your wireless internet to one end or the other (1 or 11). I f the current channel is toward 1, go to 11 if the current channel is 11 go to 1.

Channe one is 2.412 and proceeds to channel eleven at 2.462

BTW, both of my 5.68 ghz systems are Uniden as well.

Yup, tried changing the wireless channel as well with no success.
Someone mentioned to me that it's possible that even though the phone is at 5.8 GHz it still may send frequencies out at the 2.4GHz frequency which will interfere with the 2 wire. Furthermore, it sounds like when the phone turns on or off it scans all available channels to have the least amount of interference and once its past the 2wires range the wireless starts working again. What cordless phones are people using that are able to avoid this problem?
Thanks,
ST

I have two Unidens (2 handsets each):

TRU8860-2 (standard 5.8 ghz)
TRU9485 ( DSS Model)

I tend to doubt that the phone, TRU8885, is causing the problem., as multiple reports on the web attest, people are happy with the phone regarding interference.

BTW, my Access Point is set to channel 6, no particular reason just set it there. I also have mixed mode enabled.
