Hi,

I'm a new Vonage subscriber. Before I have my POTS disconnected. I want to test that I can get the Vonage signal to the rest of my rj11 jacks. The way my home is wired, is that all the jacks in the house have individual cat-5 runs pulled out to the NID. The way I try to disconnect the POTS is by unclipping the two hinges that are inside of the NID. I do not know enough about this to explain myself very well, so I took some pictures. They are at http://nid.kscorp.us I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, or what my next step should be.

Thanks,

Kevin

I dont know if this is the right way, but this is how I did it at my cousins. If you open up the other side that is still screwed close, you will see 4 more wires and a ground wire. just disconect the 4 wires, keep the ground wire plugged in. That worked for her Smile.

Hi Kevin,

The first thing you should do is resize those pictures! Wink

Since everything is home-runned to the NID, this is actually pretty easy to do. Most NIDs that I've seen have both a consumer/customer and a telco access panel. Make sure that you're looking at the consumer/customer side.

If you look at all the wires from your phone jacks, they will all be spliced together such that you probably only have 2 wires actually connected to the NID. If you have a second line or a dedicated FAX line, there will probably be a second pair of wires connected.

Purchase a junction box/modular jack from HomeDepot, RadioShack etc. The junction box should have 4 terminals inside (R, G, Y, B) and a standard RJ11 connector. For a single line, use the Red and Green connectors.

Remove those connections from the NID and wire them up to a junction box.

Plug a standard RJ11 phone cable from the junction box into port 1 of your Voip telephone adapter.

In Image61, you are holding open the clear connectors that join all your phone extensions together. When you snap that shut, it connects the outside line to your phone extensions inside the house. So all you need to do is keep that from making a connection, either by wrapping the far end of it with electrical tape, or somehow rigging it so the 2 copper connectors by your thumb don't seat back into the plug that runs into the left half of the box.

Thank you for the responses. I opened the Telco side of the box, and disconnected the incoming lines. That way, my loop stayed connected. All my phone jacks inside the house are serviced by Vonage now, and I also had a successful test to my home security monitor.

Thank You,

Kevin
