PostPosted: Mon Dec 15, 2003 12:57 pm    Post subject: Putting phone output from ATA across network wires Reply with quote Back to top

I like to have things perfect, and it's bugging me while I'm working on my laptop or my computer (both on a wired LAN), that I can't get the phone audio from the ATA to come across the network too.

Has anyone thought about this?

As I see it, there would be two ways to do it:

1) Use the spare wires in CAT5 ethernet. IIRC only 4 of the 8 wires are used. Might be possible to make a little adaptor for both ends to route the audio over two of the spare wires
2) Find a device that digitizes the audio out of the ATA, then sends it across the LAN to either a) a PC which uses it's speakers and mic as the other end or b) another digitzer box which does the opposite that you can plug a phone or speakers/mic into.

What I'm really trying to achive is to be able to use my laptop anywhere in my house, and have the phone go through (or be physically attached to) the laptop.

What's wrong with a cordless phone?

That's what so great about the Vonage service, you can take the computer totally out of the mix.

There's teh Vonage softphone option as well that does what your're talking about.. I think....

Yeah, cordless phone works OK.. the option to use it via s/w on PC would be great... where can I read about the 'Vonage softphone'?

Thanks!

If you're a current customer, log in to your account, should be on the features setup page.

Other than that... I'm guessing the Vonage site, somewhere?

Good luck.

Yeah, that looks like what I want. doesn't look like it's possible to just make it an add on for an existing service though, only purchase it as an extra line.

There's always a service like dialpad, that' agnostic of a phone number and made for outgoing calls only, all you need is any internet connection, you would not have to carry the ata around with you, etc. etc.

Vonage has a SoftPhone option that costs $$$ per month. You install software on WIndows and you can send/receive calls on the computer. But what is not clear on the Vonage web site is whether you can use the software to make/receive calls on your existing Vonage number. It looks like the SoftPhone line is a completely new phone #.

Well... Generally it's not good to use the same Cat5 cable for phone and ethernet at the same time. Some people argue that you can get interference. This is probably mostly only true with the ring signal when you get a call. I argue that it's not a standard wiring scheme. I do network consulting work, and I hate it when I have to work on a network where someone had completely ignored any sort of standards. It'll make it easier later to sort out.

I suggest running phone and ethernet to dual jacks at every location so you always have voice and data in the same place. I would pull two cables to each wall plate. If you must run both in one cable, connect the pairs to the respective jack inside the wall so that you don't have an adapter. It will be less confusing later. Simply wire tie a phone cable and an ethernet cable together so that you essentially only have one wire to deal with or get tangled up in.

If you do run both through one cable to a single jack, and make an adapter... I would make a cable that has an RJ45 on one end, with an RJ45 and an RJ11 on the other end. You'll have to make sure that your RJ45 wall jacks are wired exactly the same if you want to do it this way, for compatibility at any location. The wiring for this adapter will be a total rig job.

Now... either way you do it, You can plug the RJ45 connector into your laptops ethernet port for data, and the RJ11 connector into the modem port. Why the modem port? Because most systems these days have voice modems in them, so that you can use the modem as a speakerphone.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the suggestion.

This isn't for anything formal - the adaptor to go from RJ45 to RJ45+RJ11 is a great idea, and if my inbuilt laptop modem supports speakerphone, that'll just be perfect.

Anyone interested in one of those if I make one?

(The purpose of this is to a) carry your phone signal across the same wire as your computer network connection - less wiring and wherever your computer is your phone can be plugged in too, b) if you have a voicemodem, your computer could act as a telephone using speakerphone software. For me this will work out great because I'm allways carrying my laptop around the place (with a hard wired network connection Confused ) so it'll mean i'm carrying my email and phone with me.)
