We have an older home and all the phones dont seem to be working so right now we only have the phone linked to the adapter working. How do you set all of them up and what if anything would you have to change with the plugs to make it work.
Thanks for any help.

you *should* be able to plug into the wall jack to spread the signal thoughout your house -- it's how it gets done when using the telco -- only your source is different. If that doesn't work, and you're unable/unwilling to rewire, you can get an wireless expandable phone system (5.8 ghz)using the base connected to the Vonge box and use the handsets throughout the house.

This is a nice (albeit expensive) alternative since you can move and not worry about restoring phone wiring.

GACK! Please don't recommend someone do something when you aren't sure about it yourself.

While the above will work on occassion, DO NOT plug in your Vonage box to your phone system UNTIL you go outside and disconnect the telephone line in the box. Telco voltage + Vonage voltage = typically a fried Vonage box.

It is very important to disconnect the incoming telephone line coming to your house from the telephone company. After doing this then plug the line into any phone jack from the telephone adapter. Since the lines are run in parallel, your whole house will be wired.

One of my friends lives in an apartment and had to get an expandable phone system because of lack of access to disconnecting phone line coming into his apartment.

The above posts are correct. You simply disconnect the Telephone company from you (typically outside your home in a box) and after there is no voltage in your phone line, there is NO PROBLEM at all, connecting from your Vonage box to one of your phone jacks which in turn, makes all your other jacks that are wired together with that one live. You simply plug phones into the other jacks and talk away.

For anyone reading this thread, there are two additional points you might want to consider before connecting Vonage into your house phone wiring.

1. You must disonnect the telco connection physically. Some here have thought that by canceling service or requesting an LNP the line would no longer be hot and no longer send voltage into the house phone wiring. That is not the case. Canceling service or requesting an LNP does not stop the voltage from running into your home phone wiring. So please take the advice that has been offered here to disconnect all telco wiring at the main box.

2. If you have requested an LNP, you cannot cancel your telco service until that has been completed or the LNP will fail and you will lose your number. In the meantime, while waiting for the LNP to take place (perhaps a couple of months or more), you may want to forward your landline phone number to your Vonage account. That can only be done from a landline phone connected from your house wiring -- so you probably should forward the number before you disconnect your house wiring from the telco box.
