i have a question i currently have verizon telephone service as well as verizon fios internet service.

verizon fios runs off ppoe system but the router/modem is in a room upstairs far away from the main telephone with voicemail that is down in the kitchen

what would be the best way of being able to connect Vonage having the router in a different room, would i need some sort of gateway and what works best with verizons fios router/modem?

Dan,

You can do things several different ways. It depends on what you decide works best for you. You can use the wiring in your house, which is a bit more complicated to send the Vonage signal from wherever the phone line is and relay it to all open jacks. You can also scratch the current setup and plug an extendable cordless phone system into the Vonage adapter and simply use cordless phones through the house that are connected to the one base station.

Once the Vonage device arrives you can connect this to the FIOS router. After you plug a telephone into the ATA and activate you should be good.

Hope that helps!

well the problem is that the router is in the room upstairs, i dont think everyone wants to come up here when they need to check a voicemail

currently all our phones are connecting wirelessly to the base station in the kitchen, but the router isnt there. any other ways to go about this?

maybe I am missing something but can't you check your vmail from any of the phones? It should give a pulse tone to let you know that you have vmail.

also can the base station be moved to the upstairs?

Well ya I could put the base station upstairs but my parents are so electronic illiterate that they would never be able to figure out voicemail from one of the plain phones connected to the base wirelessly. I was just wondering if there were any ethernet dongles u could buy to connect to the back of the Vonage device and the back of the router that would wirelessly transmit data to each other from upstairs to downstairs? Or something along those lines

Find a pair of wires that run through your house and ARE NOT connected to the demarcation point. Wire these to a phone jack in that room (if the jack is in use, replace with a duplex jack plate, and wire accordingly. where you want the phone DOWNSTAIRS, do the same.

Just plug a wireless 2 sation phone into the Vonage device and put the second station downstairs. IF you buy one without the built in voice mail, it should flash when a voice mail arrives (using Vonage's Voice Mail) and you should be able to retrieve the voice mail from the extension.

A third option is a wireless bridge (gaming gateway) that connects via your wireless system and ports to 10BaseT or perhaps 100BaseT for what its worth. Connect your Vonage device to it. You will lose bandwith to the extent that your connection speed is divided by the number of ACTIVE devices that are on wireless. And remember, 802.11b wireless connection under ideal conditions for end user data is actually 4-5 Mbps with home network links typically run at 2-3 Mbps. Then divide by active users, and your QOS may suffer.

Agreed. Sorry was away from the computer till this point. Voicemail is not dependent on anything except a phone line. Pick up any extension and dial *123. Follow the prompts... Are you confusing voicemail with an answering machine?

haha yes i am

im saying that the main phone with the answering machine is downstairs and the base stations are all upstairs, along with the router

i also have parents that are pretty computer stupid haha and they really just know how to walk up to the answering machine press play and delete...i dont want them to have to come into my room everytime they want to check their answering machine because my router is in my room, however i see how much they pay to have verizon phone service and it is truly ridiculous.

im not about to get into the walls and change wiring, but i just figured d-link or linksys made some type of ethernet dongle(s) where u can put one into the Vonage system and the other into the router and they would communicare, or would i have to go about a gateway of some sort?

why don't you use the vmail service that comes with Vonage instead of using the answering machine on your phone system. that will solve your issue with the location of the base unit.
