PostPosted: Mon Nov 17, 2008 6:59 am    Post subject: MOTOROLA VT-2142 WITH STRUCTURED WIRING Reply with quote Back to top

This is a new construction house. I ran all the structured wiring for the house. All the cat5e cables are home ran to the data closet.

I have bought Channel Plus DMT-24. I currently plan on using 1 phone line but would like to setup for 4. I do have a patch panel board.

http://www.channelplus.com/pdf/manuals/DMT-24.pdf

How do I connect the DMT-24 to my Motorola Vt-2142 Vonage device? The DMT 24 has a punch down for the incoming line. But my incoming line from the VT-2142 would be a regular phone wire. How do I punch this down on the dmt-24, when the wire is not even cat5e.

please help

I suggest using an RJ11 telephone jack. Connect a twisted pair of wires to pins 3 and 4 (the red and green terminals, or the center two) of the jack, and punch them down on pins 3 and 4 of your punch-down block. Then plug a modular line cord into the jack, and plug the other end of that cord into the Phone 1 jack on your Vonage device.

Are you saying that I should make a custom cable using a cat5 with and RJ11 on one end and punching the wires on my DMT-24. I am assuming you mean the the RJ11 end goes intot the Motorola VT-2142 right?

No, that is not what I am saying, but it would also work.

I am recommending that you install an RJ-11 jack (not a plug; a jack!) by which I mean a female RJ-11 connector. Connect a twisted pair to the red/green terminals on this jack, and punch that pair down on your punch-down block to connect it to your house telephone wiring.

Then, use a standard telephone line cord (a flat cable with an RJ-11 plug, that is a male connector) on each end. One end goes to the Vonage device phone jack; the other goes to the jack you provided according to the paragraph above.

Another method would be to connect a telephone line cord from the Vonage device phone jack to any phone jack in your house. Don't connect anything to the punch-down. If your phone jacks are all wired together (i.e. connected to the same pair of terminals downstairs) then that will distribute the Vonage dial tone to all jacks.

Thx Dave, you've got me on the right track. This makes a lot of sense.

All my phone wires are home ran to data closet, so all I have to do is put cat5 plugs on them and connect them to the DMT-24. And hoplefully they will get activated.


thx
