PostPosted: Mon Apr 25, 2005 10:05 am    Post subject: how to connect:2-story house, 3 phones in 3 different rooms Reply with quote Back to top

What would be the simplest/cheapest way to have all 3 phones (all on one line) connected? I would hate to have to run wires all over the house. I thought of buying one of those 2.4 GHz expandable cordless phone systems: that way only the base would have to be directly connected to the Linksys phone router.

Anybody has any other ideas? Appreciate any help.


Thanks,
Eek Raz

The cordless would be the easiest way. But if you are going to use a 2.4 GHz wireless router, you might think about getting 5.8 GHz phones instead, to reduce any possible interference issues.

I have a three story home and just yesterday purchased a 5.8Ghz Uniden cordless in a three pack on sale in Costco.
It took all of ten minutes to have the phones working and I have no any interference issues so far.
These are full feature phones and are very intuitive to program and use. This is an elegantly simple solution.

You're saying that your house has no exhisting phone jacks/wiring?

I just bought a Vtech 2.4GHz w/two phones at Costco for $39 and it works great.

You can try to get a splitter/booster from radioshack and plug it into your router then you may be able to connect one cable from it into your phone and the other into the wall jack, which should make all the jacks in your house hot. I'm sure you'd need a booster though, because the voltage may drop low depending on how far the other end is....Like I said, this should work.

My parents are feeding six phones, in a fairly large house, and no "boosting" has been necessary. Of course, they are all modern phones, which require only a small voltage for the ring signal. Were they all old-fashion bell and coil ringers, I seriously doubt that it would work.

Thank you all for your advise. The house is not hudge: 2400 sqf, two story, with a wall jack in 4 bedrooms and the kitchen. I can understand the usage of a splitter/booster which would make all the jacks in the house hot. But how could the wall jacks be usable without this splitter/booster: could you explain?

You can still make use of your current phone wiring without purchasing anything. You can plug the adapter to a vacant phone jack but before you do this you have to check if your current phone setup has no PSTN voltage running through it coz it might damage the adapter. This only means that you have to disconnect the phone line from your demarcation point (switchbox) outside your house. Another thing you need to check on is your phones should be interconnected with one another meaning they should be in a close loop so that signal can be evenly distributed among all your phones.

That's right. I forgot to mention about disconnecting the wiring from the switchbox....Like sherlock said, bad things can happen. It should work though. You can try it without a splitter/booster first, by just plugging the cable from your modem, which goes to the phone, into the wall and plugging your phone into another wall jack.

Again, make sure you disconnect the phone box, it should only be 2 wires, usually red and green, but sometimes they'll use yellow and black. You can disconnect them all, if you like. There's only a 12v current going through the phone lines. If you know someone that's an electrician, he/she can show you how to do it, but if not and If all this seems over your head, don't do it.
