ROI or not, it doesnt make sense to purchase that piece of equipment.

I would be better off buying a 5ghz base set with 4 phones from costco for 240.00 bux.

But also, the other thing i think I can attribute this to is old wiring in the house.. Anyone else had dealings with this?

time to get some CAT5e

I ended up ditching my old wiring and wired my house with Cat5e into a S110 patch panel. A 110 patch panel makes it a breeze to cross-connect rooms together... basically I can move phone lines around anywhere in the house with a couple strips of wire and a punch down tool.

Just an option - if you do rewire your house, consider using a 110 panel.

My problem with wiring is getting the wires into rooms on my 3rd floor from the basement without having wires all over the house. I would like them hidden, but there is very little chance of getting a hidden wire to my 3rd floor. My guest bedroom has a TV, but no cable. I would love to have cable in that room, but I'm not willing to have a messy wire running throughout my hallway across baseboards for that. I would not like the wire on the outside of the house either. Or holes drilled into the side of the house destroying my insulation.

Picky, aren't I?

Well if you used cables with a FT6 fire rating on the jacket, you could run the cables through the air ducts in the house.

The wires would visibly be coming out of the air ducts though. That would look horrible. Especially if you were trying to sell your home. I would also be nervous that it might interfere with the air flow. It's an idea though!

What really should be done when homes are being built is the builder should always install a pipe that runs from the basement to the attic. That would make things easier. Especially with new technologies coming out all of the time. I definitely think that we need an easier way to incorporate additional wiring throughout our homes as times change with new technology. Another option for me might be to use the pipes for my central vac. I don't have a central vac, but the house has pipes built in for one. I could use that as my wiring pipe, and it does travel from the basement to the top floor, but comes out into my hallway which is not so good.

I've got a house that was renovated with the incoming line hooked to a box with several lines parallel connections coming out.

Is there any hope or do I just bite the bullet for cordless base with three extensions?

Thanks for any advice.

Is there any hope for what? I am guessing that you mean is there any hope in getting the wiring to work with your Vonage line.

I don't see why not! I have my Vonage adapter plugged into my wall jack here in my computer room on the 3rd floor. From there it powers 5 phones throughout my house, including one cordless, that have been parallel wired from the basement. Prior to hooking this up, I disconnected the Bell Canada wiring all together. Having Vonage and Bell hooked up simultaneously could risk breaking your Vonage adapter. Especially if a call came in on the Bell line. The 98 volts coming through I am sure would not be too kind to the Vonage adapter. Just make sure you have absolutely no other live telephone line connected to your Vonage adapter.

Sure, if all your lines are on one parallel circuit, you're home free.

... but mine are several circuits with a couple of parallel connections off that.

There should a single demarcation point where the outside line from Bell comes in and connects to your inside wiring. You need to disconnect this incoming line. In many homes it is actually a modular jack that you simply unplug, it is done this way so you can test your POTS phone service to determine if the problem in outside (Bell's problem) or inside (your problem).

If you disconnect this incoming line you should be fine. Just plug your phone into each jack throughout the house and verify that all cirucits are indeed "dead".

If all the circuits are dead then you should be able to plug your Vonage ATA into one of the phone jacks and have serive on all the other parallel connected circuits. Just remember the ATA cannot power a large number of ringer circuits, check out the maximum line load.

The very first thing I did was disconnect where my line enters the house. All my lines to that number are dead.

My problem is that I don't have parallel circuits and I'm looking for a workaround.
