I've got my Vonage set up and working. If I plug from the Vonage adapter into any phone jack w/in the house, all the phone jacks in the house work. I've disconnected the connection from the phone company outside my house. I have one line (Cat5) coming into my house from the phone box outside into my closet and then the phone splits from there to the rest of the house. I am guessing this line to be the line labeled "Line In" on the OnQ panel.

Now....I'd prefer to keep all my networking gear in the closet w/ my OnQ box. I'm trying to run a telephone wire from my Vonage Linksys box (RJ11) to the Line In connection on the OnQ panel.

I'm assuming I only need to plug one end of the telephone wire into the Linksys and cut the other end off. I would then connect this cut end to the OnQ Line in panel. My question is - which pair from the phone line do I connect to the OnQ - The red and green to the blue and white? Is it Red to Blue and Green to Blue/White?

I can take pictures if necessary.

OK - IT WORKS. I couldn't wait. I just guessed. It probably doesn't even matter - but I plugged the Red and Green to the Blue and Blue/White in the OnQ and now all the jacks work.

Now to test my ADT security system and my fax machine.....

I was just about to reply to your posting but you figured it out yourself. I just recently signed up for Vonage and still waiting for my SBC number to be transferred to Vonage. So therefore, I still have two lines.

My cable modem and Vonage/Linksys router is just outside my OnQ box sitting on a shelf.

What I did was pull the wires out of the Line IN on my telecom panel and wired a RJ45 plug into it. I also made an adapter that can feed phone line #1 into pins 4&5 and phone line #2 into pins 3&6. Now I can feed any service to either line from my OnQ box.

So yes, BLUE & BLUE/WHITE is your main house line. ORANGE & ORANGE/WHITE would be your house second line. This is how OnQ sets it up.

I know my explanation is cruddy. If you would like a photo of my telecom setup inside my OnQ box, I'd be happy to send one to you.

Ahh - that's a good idea that you wired the plug to the OnQ Line In. I should have done that so it would be easier to swap out in the future. My next step will be to get shelves for all these Linksys boxes. I might just get an empty OnQ box installed next to the one I have and mount all the routers I have in their.

Do you have a security system as well? Does it work w/ Vonage?

I am currently having issues with my security system (non-Vonage related) so it's not monitored currently. One of my window sensors have a short in it and the installers are trying to figure out where the source of the short is.

But as for my OnQ box, everything was nice and neatly self-contained when I moved in but now I have wires coming in-and-out of the box now. The door still latches though.

My first complaint about OnQ was the piece-o-crap router. It was non-wireless and it only had 4 ports on the back. My house was wired for 7 network outlets. So when I got the Linksys/Vonage router, I set it on a wire shelf in my closet outside the OnQ box. And where the OnQ router was, I rigged a 8 port switch in its place. I bought a Linksys switch instead of a OnQ switch because the price difference was something like $20 vs $200.

The second OnQ configuration I didn't like was there were two cable signal splits (home office module + 8-way splitter) causing the signal to my HDTV cable box to have an extremely poor signal. The cable guy had to put in a signal amplifier which requires a 110V power source. Because of this I have a coaxial cable running out of the box and a second one running back into the box.

I've gotten off the top of Vonage but it's been fun talking to someone else who also has the OnQ home wiring. Wink

New to the OnQ panel. I just bought a brand new house, and of course there is no manual or instructions for the OnQ panel. Could you send/post detailed instructions of setting up Vonage and Comcast so that all my Cat5 and phone jacks work with Vonage and Comcast? thanks josh@klockes.com

I also have a new house with a patch panel upstairs with a single line bringing in the phone to the house, and a distribution panel distributing it to all of the rooms via Cat5e. (Actually each room could receive either phone or internet via the cat5e located in each room.) I would very much like to know how to connect the RPT300 to the distribution panel to distribute V_nage to each room. Any photos of the wiring would be very helpful. tx2006@hotmail.com

Dan,

I followed those instructions and had the adapter hardwired in about 5 minutes. Thanks so much for pointing out that link to me.
