All:

Today I am going to try wiring my entire house for Vonage. However, I was hoping for a sanity check and some help from others in this group. My current wiring configuration seems to be a bit different from most people since I don't have the short rj11 cables running between Verizon's side of the box and mine. The following URL is a picture of the box open...phone company on the right and my side on the left.

http://www.geocities.com/cryptorl/wiring/894_9409_1.JPG

It appears that I have a red and green wire coming into my side of the box from Verizon, but there doesn't seem to be easy access to these wires when the are attached to the posts. Do I simply snip these two wires and splice a phone cord into these and then run it to the PAP2? It also appears that all phone lines (including my home security line) are fed into the top connection with the other two not being used at all. As a side note, in my current setup, the phone lines are only active when the swing switches (not sure of the term, but they are marked with an "X" in the following picture) are closed which will completely cover the RJ11 connection within the box.

Any suggestions on how to wire Vonage into the entire house would really be appreciated. Once I get this tackled I am ready to get the home alarm and Tivo/DirecTV working with Vonage. Thank you.

Robert

If I understand your situation you will use Vonage as your only phone service and Verizon is completely out of the picture.

If that is correct then read on.

First you need to disconnect your home wiring from Verizon. If you don't you will be sending dialtone back to their CO. This might not be a bad thing but why chance it. Loosen the two screws that have the red and green wires. If there is more than one wire attached to each screw simply twist the wires together to keep then in contact with each other. Think of the red wire as the positive side of a battery and the green the negative. Do not twist the red AND green ones together.

Step 2, go back inside and take a regular line cord and plug one end into the Vonage phone port. The other plugs into the nearest phone wall outlet. Go pick up a phone in another room. You should have dialtone.

Your Vonage box is now the phone company; just connecting into the middle of your wiring instead of the end.

BTW: The Network Telephone Interface pictures you posted are of a type I worked with last Monday. When the gate with the rj11 end snaps closed this connects the Verizon CO with your home wiring. It's probably full of a gel that keeps water away from the connectors.

Good luck.

Thank you for you reply, but here is the dilema I am in. Yes, I do want to ditch Verizon completely, but I can't seem to gain access to the red and green wires coming in from Verizon on my side of the NID. I pulled out one of the connectors completely and it seems that these wires are hard wired into the my side of the box. The only wires that seem to attach to the screw in terminals are from my inside phones. The only possibility I can see by my current setup is to snip the red and green wires which are accessable from Verizon's side of the box. I was thinking I could then either splice a phone cord into that connection with the other end going into my ATA. Or...plugging the ATA into the RJ11 connection which is available from my portion of the NID. Suggestions? I just cannot seem to gain access to unscrew or otherwise disconnect the red and green wires from Verizon.

You merely need to disconnect your inside wiring from Verizon. It doesn't matter which side the wires are coming from.

Try this: With the NID open and the swing gate with the RJ11 end on it open as your picture shows, plug a phone cord from the Vonage box into a phone wall outlet. With the swing gate open you have disconnected your home from Verizon. Check to see if you have dialtone on another phone in your home.

CCNADog,

It worked like a charm!! And so freaking easy too! Thanks a bunch. Did some tests with my home alarm system and it's working great with no modifications. Now onto Tivo and DirecTV. Thanks again.

Excellent. I did this at a friend's house yesterday and I'm glad it worked for you too.

BTW: If you had a phone at the location where you connected the Vonage line to the wall outlet all you need is a splitter (the one with the same line on both sides) to connect you original phone and the Vonage line to.

Good luck on the TiVo and DirectTV.
