Just completed reading the "Do-It-Yourself Home Wiring Guide" which talks about isolating the phone line to allow phone jacks to work. My DSL service is provided by Qwest which also provides my local phone service. This procedure sounds as if it will disconnect the DSL service as well. If so, how do I isolate the phone jacks without interupting the internet service?

With DSL, you cannot completely disconnect from the telco line. If your telephone jacks are connected to each other and to the phone company with four wires, you should wire the phone company line to the second pair of wires (orange/white in newer buildings, yellow/black in older ones) and isolate the first pair of wires (blue/white in newer buildings, and red/green in older ones). Then plug your DSL modem into one of your jacks through a triplex modular adapter. Plug the modem into the L2 jack on the adapter. Plug a modular cord into the Phone 1 jack on your Vonage device, and plug the other end of this cord into the L1 jack on the adapter. All of your telephones should then have access to the Vonage service through the first pair of wires on all of your remaining jacks.

Alternatively, if you can isolate all of your jacks but one, and plug the DSL modem into the one that remains connected, that will accomplish the same thing without the triplex adapter.

as DLevenson said, the dsl connection uses only 1 pair of wire. you should have 2 or 3 other pairs to use for the Vonage line. just make sure that the 2 or 3 other pairs are not connected to the telco.

Keep in mind the adapter for the Vonage phone device is not designed to (push) a whole house full of extensions (resistance) = Amps required - Maybe a few close extension but not 100ft.

Could try running new cables for the few extensions you want if you do not want to mess around with the dsl connection.

At my parents the odd time my Vonage number would ring in on there home line as they were using dsl - Something to do with bell wiring. Point being separate cabling would simplify the installation.

One can purchase cat5 or cat3 or even 2pair at Home Depot.

Chirstmas (red/green) Halloween (black/yellow) just as long as you keep the same pair for each line.

Cheers

Add up the REN (ringer equivalence number) of all extensions connected to your house wiring. If the total is more than five or so, then the Vonage adapter may be unable to ring them correctly. If you have lots of extensions simultaneously off-hook (a whole-house conference call, perhaps?) then the audio level will probably be too low for comfort.

Other than those limitations, driving the whole house from a Vonage adapter should not present a problem. If you're using only one or two extensions at a time, you'll be able to locate then anywhere in the same house. Cable lengths of several hundred feet will work just fine unless your house is wired with really fine wire.
